Bar Tartine Takes Over the Space Next Door, Locavore to Open

Posted By on Wed, Jul 21, 2010 at 8:45 AM

​The past 24 hours in

gossip, innuendo, and cold hard facts about the

San Francisco restaurant scene.

Marcia G. of Tablehopper reveals that Bar Tartine's Chad Robertson and Elisabeth Prueitt are expanding into the space next door (the Hideo Wakamatsu store) and installing a brick oven for breads, pies, and roast meats. The expansion will also give them more seats.

Marcia G. also gets the details on Locavore (3125 Mission), which is expected to open in September. The owners are Cesar Cruz and Mario Duarte, and the chef is Flora and Nectar alumnus Jason Moniz. The pitch: 39-seat restaurant with midpriced menu featuring whole-animal, local-seasonal-etc. cooking and a West Coast wine list.


Loc@l discovers that Crepe House (1132 Valencia) has just

opened, the third location for this local chain. The pitch: No information yet; pretty sure the menu will be the same as the Hayes Valley location's.

Other details noted by Tablehopper: Oakland's Hibiscus opens for

lunch Wednesdays through Fridays. Meanwhile, Just for You, in

Dogpatch, closes for dinner. (Holy #$^#. Is Just for You really 20 years old?)

  • 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.'"
