Coppola Winery to Serve Francis's Faves, Ken Ken Ramen to Feed S.F.'s Current Obsession

Posted By on Mon, Jul 26, 2010 at 8:42 AM

​The past 72 hours in gossip, innuendo, and cold hard facts about the

San Francisco restaurant scene.

Carolyn A. of Eater shares some good news. Francis Ford Coppola's new winery in Geyserville is opening July 30, and along with it, the winery restaurant, named Rustic, Francis's Favorites (300 Via Archimedes, Guyserville; 707-857-1400), which SFoodie would prefer to spell with a colon instead of a comma. The pitch: indoor-outdoor restaurant with an Argentinian parrilla, Brazilian rotisserie, oven for Neapolitan pizzas, and on-site garden. The chef will be Nick Petrilli, a Tra Vigne vet, and none of Coppola's favorite dishes are named after Godfather characters. Side note: In the process of looking for more information on Rustic Francis, SFoodie discovered that Black Francis has a Twitter feed.

Carolyn A. also gets the dish on Ken Ken Ramen, a Monday-night pop-up noodlerie showing up at Panchita No. 3 (3115 22nd St., at Mission):

Look for the hanging lantern to mark when the kitchen still has bowls

to sell. The owners are Revolver owner Robert Patterson and Stephen

Roesch, and the chef, Kenji Miyazaki, normally works as a cook at

Bushi-Tei. The pitch: Three kinds of ramen ― miso, shoyu, and

vegetarian shiitake ― with gyoza and fried rice coming soon.

Mission Mission reports that Arinell Pizza

(509 Valencia, 255-1303) is celebrating the end of the Valencia

construction by staying open until 3 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.

Apologies to the blogger who first announced that the deli in Falletti Foods

(308 Broderick, 626-4400) has opened, replacing the one run by DeLessio

Bakery (which still operates out of the building). We deleted the link

and can't find it again.

  • 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.'"
