Charles Phan Hopes the Mission Likes Him Better Now, Bai Thong Opens

Posted By on Wed, Aug 25, 2010 at 8:30 AM

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

Jay B. at Grub Street talks to Charles Phan about his plans for the original Slanted Door location at 584 Valencia St. They're still quite vague, but Grub Street says the concept is more likely to resemble Heaven's Dog than Out the Door.

Marcia G. at Tablehopper reports on the impending arrival of a new Hayes Valley Thai restaurant called Bai Thong (298 Gough, 863-9335). SFoodie is intrigued by her mention that the new owners ran a restaurant in northeastern Thailand for seven years; we hope their plans for the menu include lots of regional dishes, and not just your standard pad thai and sugary red curry.

  • 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.'"
