Another Surprise Sundance Closure, Chef Changes at Eos and Long Bar

Posted By on Fri, Sep 10, 2010 at 8:40 AM


On Tuesday, Sundance Coffee owner Michael Ware told SFoodie that he was not closing his Dogpatch cafe, even though he shut down the Mission branch a week earlier without giving his staff any notice. Yesterday, Eater SF learned that Ware has just done the same thing to the Third Street store. Our condolences to the suddenly unemployed baristas. As for Mr. Ware, there's a four-letter word we'd like to call you, and it's not "liar."

Inside Scoop's Paolo L. notes a few chef arrivals and departures. The chef of Eos, Daniel Guerrini, is leaving after a decade. And Erik Hopfinger (yeah, the Top Chef guy) has joined Reza Esmaili, the new owner at Long Bar, to take on its food menu until Esmaili figures out what he wants to do with the Pacific Heights bar. And in addition to Deanie Hickox, the Daniel Patterson Group has brought on former Elisabeth Daniel chef de cuisine Ron Boyd to run the kitchens at its restaurants.

  • 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.'"
