Jeremy Fox Abandons Plum, Bumzy's Opens

Posted By on Mon, Aug 9, 2010 at 12:47 PM

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

San Francisco restaurant scene.

Breaking news from Paolo L. at the Inside Scoop: Jeremy Fox (you know, the chef from Ubuntu) has abandoned his plans to be the opening chef for Plum, the new Oakland restaurant from Daniel Patterson (you know, the guy from Coi); looks like something else caught his eye. The chefs tell the Chron they're still bros, but Patterson's stuck working the pre-opening dinners and Lauren Kiino (you know, the chef from Il Cane Rosso) may step in as Plum's opening chef until moving over to Bracina, Patterson's long-delayed Jack London Square restaurant.

From Mr. Scoop, we also learn that Spruce

has named second-in-charge Ben Cohn as its new executive chef. Cohn's

worked at a number of local four-stars and has been running the kitchen

of late, so there should be no change in quality.

And Carolyn A. at Eater SF reports that Bumzy's Cookies (1460 Fillmore, 346-3222, is opening. The pitch: Cookies and ice cream sandwiches. Isn't that all you need?

  • 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.'"
