A summary of the past 72 hours of rumor, innuendo,

and straight-up facts about San Francisco restaurant openings and


Carolyn A. at Eater SF is the first out of the gate to report that Skool (1725 Alameda, at De Haro, 255-8800, has opened for lunch today from a group of restaurateurs connected to Blowfish and Busha Tei. The pitch: sustainable seafood entrees and sandwiches, with a strong Japanese influence. Dinner and brunch to come.

Jay B. at Grub Street reports that Luna Taqueria (799 Bryant) has been bought out and will close up at the end of next month.

And Paolo L. at Inside Scoop

discovers that, to everyone's surprise, Charles Phan didn't sell the

Valencia Street building that housed the first incarnation of his

Slanted Door when he moved to the Ferry Building in 2002. All these

years later, in fact, he has announced that he has designs for the

space, which he'll begin acting on this fall. SFoodie wishes we had

bought property on Valencia Street a decade ago.

  • 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.'"
