Home of Chicken and Waffles Heads East, Pizza Nostra Goes to Someone Else

Posted By on Thu, Sep 2, 2010 at 8:40 AM

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

San Francisco restaurant scene.

Paolo L. at Inside Scoop learns that Derreck Johnson has signed the lease on a second location for Home of Chicken and Waffles, which started off intending to be a Roscoe's franchise but has found success on its own. Johnson's second Home will be at 1653 Mount Diablo Boulevard in Walnut Creek. Watch out, Casa Orinda ― Johnson's fried chicken offers some stiff competition.

Scoop also notes that Winona Matsuda, who last owned the Choppers sandwich shop, has bought Pizza Nostra (300 DeHaro, 558-9493, from Chez Papa's Jocelyn Bulow, but plans on keeping the same menu.

  • 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.'"
