Last week, Tablehopper announced that Ryan Ostler was going to be doing a guest chef stint at Bar Tartine, throwing a three- or four-course barbecue dinner on August 23 with his partner, Kat Zacher, who is now Bar Tartine's pastry chef. Reuniting the chefs from Bruno's and Broken Record can only be a good thing, especially if they're serving the ribs that SFoodie editor John Birdsall and I both showered serious love on (and returned several times, off the clock, to eat).

Ostler just emailed SFoodie to say that the August 23 dinner is off, but that he, Zacher, and Bar Tartine chef Chris Kronner are plotting a series of "Bar BQ Tartine" dinners to debut in September. We'll let you know when the details come in.

Bar Tartine: 561 Valencia (at 16th St.), 487-1600.

  • 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.'"
