Diamond Lil Bustaurant Revs Up, Zut! Opens! In Berkeley!

Posted By on Wed, Sep 1, 2010 at 8:28 AM

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

San Francisco restaurant scene.

Inside Scoop and Eater SF both announced that Zut! (1820 Fourth St., 510-644-0444, opened yesterday in the old Eccolo space. The pitch: Pan-Mediterranean bistro. Make of that what you will.

Carolyn A. of Eater SF has a talk with Kai Schoenhals and Daniel Isberg about the impending launch of Diamond Lil. The two owners drop some series nameage ― Charles Schwab, Thomas Keller ― and hint that they have two (two!) television deals in the works. If you want to check out the bustaurant, hit up the fall release party on Sept. 11 at A Donkey and Goat Winery, the Berkeley natural winemakers.

Marcia G. of Tablehopper announces that NOPA is adding brunch on Sept. 4. Bonus: they take reservations.

Jay B. at Grub Street learns of a possible Vietnamese-Cajun restaurant set to open in the Inner Sunset: Crawfish Station (1336 Ninth Ave.). The pitch: Here's some background intel on this national trend.

The guys behind Naked Lunch, the pop-up sandwich shop at Enrico's in North Beach, tell Food GPS they're hoping to open up a late-night pintxos restaurant in SOMA. (Thanks to Eater SF for spotting.)

  • 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.'"
