Trick Dog Shakes Hands with Flour + Water, RNM is RIP

Posted By on Thu, Jul 15, 2010 at 8:40 AM

The past 24 hours in S.F.

restaurant gossip, puffery, and cold, hard facts.

At Inside Scoop, Paolo L. gets wind that Scott Baird (15 Romolo) and Josh Harris, collectively known as the Bon Vivants (that's a business name, not something strangers call them off the cuff), as well as Jason Henton are starting up a bar in the massive food complex being constructed at 3000 20th Street. Other tenants will be new projects from Flour + Water and Humphry Slocombe. The forthcoming bar's name: Trick Dog. We could take that many, many, places, none of which would leave SFoodie's much-abused professional reputation intact.

Jay B. at Grub

Street pegged it, then Inside Scoop confirmed

it yesterday (we believed you in the first place, Jay, we swear): RNM

is permanently closed.


F., also of Inside Scoop, learns that Original Joe's will

not return to the fire-gutted Tenderloin space it long occupied but will

instead take over the old Moose's/Joey and Eddy's space (1652

Stockton). The pitch: Same as it ever was, only not.

Just for the record, looks like Mission Beach Cafe's

Bill Clarke is going public, naming Trevor Ogden, who's been running

the line for the past six months, the official chef. Virginia

M. at the Guardian sings Ogden's praises.


confirms that Nombe (2491 Mission, has opened its 

U-shaped snack bar for late-night chicken wings

and okonomiyaki. (SFoodie reported that the snack bar was in

the works last month.)

  • 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.'"
