Her Majesty's Secret Beekeeper Opts to Buzz Off, as Rocketfish Blasts Off

Posted By on Fri, Jul 2, 2010 at 8:10 AM

The last 24 hours

in rumor, innuendo, and straight-out facts about restaurant openings and

closings in San Francisco.

Lydia C. at Loc@l Mission just reprinted an open letter from the owner of Her Majesty's Secret Beekeeper (3520 20th St.), who's announced that she's closing up shop when her lease runs out in two months and returning to the office world. Apparently, being queen bee of her own business wasn't as enjoyable as she'd hoped.


B. at Grub Street just posted a menu for

Rocketfish (1469 18th St., 282-1424). The pitch: Sushi

restaurant from former Blowfish chef Kenichi Kawashima with all the old

familiars plus creative small plates (clam braised with sake and

seven spices; walu carpaccio with jalapenos, lemon confit, and capers).

And Mission

Mission reader Laurie V. tips the blog off that a woman named Emily

is opening a "seasonal soul food" restaurant at 3465 19th St.

(at Lexington). Interest: piqued.

  • 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.'"
