Humphry Slocombe Expanding, CAV Slims Down, More Tacos Due

Posted By on Fri, Jun 25, 2010 at 8:30 AM

The biggest news of the day comes from Paolo L. of Inside Scoop, who discovers Humphry Slocombe is opening a bake shop and ice cream "parlour" at 300 20th St. (at Florida), home, eventually, of Flour + Water's Central Kitchen spinoff.

The pitch: Bigger room, later hours, a pastry shop. It's not clear from the post whether HS will be closing the first location, and a target date hasn't been set yet.

Mr. L. also reports that CAV, the Market Street wine bar whose

food has, off and on, been as much a part of its appeal as its bottles,

is dropping the idea of serving a full menu, leaving chef John Maher out

of a job. CAV is going to focus on retail sales, competing more

directly with Arlequin Wine Merchant, just a few blocks away. 


B. of Grub Street peruses the permits and discovers applications

for a restaurant called Nico's Tacos (1310 Grant, at

Vallejo). The pitch: It serves tacos.

Also: News keeps trickling in about Dennis Leary and his many, many new

projects. Look for a précis of all known Leary intel early next week.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
