Una Pizza Napoletana Tosses Out an Opening Date, the Washbag's Washed Up

Posted By on Fri, Aug 13, 2010 at 8:40 AM

​The past 24 hours in gossip, innuendo, and cold hard facts about the San Francisco restaurant scene.

Oho! Jay B. at Grub Street interviewed pizzaiolo Anthony Mangieri and finds that the New York transplant now has a firm opening date for his Una Pizza Napoletana on Howard and Eighth St.: Sept. 8.

In his print piece, Inside Scoop's Paolo L. reported on a few new ― but still far-off ― projects:

1. Gary Danko's opening his unnamed American brasserie at Ghirardelli Square (900 North Point) sometime next spring.

2. Former Quince pastry chef William Werner will open Tell Tale Preserve Co. (33 Maiden Lane) late this year, where he'll sell his pastries, preserves, and sandwiches.

3. Ex-Ame chef Greg Dunmore is plotting an izakaya in Hayes Valley named Nojo (231 Franklin), probably in early 2011.

Scoop also reported that well-known S.F. restaurateur Ed Moose died yesterday, on the same day that his old restaurant, the Washington Square Bar and Grill (aka the Washbag), shut its doors. Farewell to both.

  • 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.'"
