The Castro Lets New Restaurants In, Beckett's Sold to Non-Irish People

Posted By on Tue, Aug 17, 2010 at 8:35 AM

​The past 24 hours in gossip, innuendo, and cold hard facts about the

San Francisco restaurant scene.

Carolyn A. at Eater announces some good news for the Castro: The Planning Commission is finally allowing restaurants to take over non-restaurant spaces in the neighborhood after preventing the conversion or years. Of course, the neighbors have to agree...

Inside Scoop's Paolo L. finds Tacolicious dropping hints that a second location is in the works. We suspect that 7x7 mag will let us know when the lease is signed.

At Grub Street, Jay B. learns that Beckett's (2271 Shattuck, Berkeley) has been sold to a group of investors called Les Copains d'Abord. SFoodie would find it appropriate if the bar, named after the bilingual Irish author, converted from Irish to French food.

  • 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.'"
