Fulton Street May Get a Brewpub, Iluna Basque May Get New Owners

Posted By on Mon, Sep 20, 2010 at 10:07 AM

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

San Francisco restaurant scene.

Eater's Carolyn A. (via Agro Panhandler) learns of a former Beach Chalet staffer, Ivan Hopkinson, who hopes to take over 1785 Fulton and turn it into the Fulton Street Brewpub, with a mission similar to that of Magnolia. Hopkinson appears to be connected to something called Shipwreck Breweries.

Eater SF also reports that Spuntino (1957 Union, 931-6410,, the cheese-and-wine store attached to Ottimista Enoteca, has just gotten the permits to add a wine tasting bar.

Vegansaurus's Mrpenguino is thrilled to report that a Southern California chain of restaurants named Native Foods is opening a Bay Area branch. No word yet on the specific location -- the news broke via a Craigslist job posting.

Finally open: Per Grub Street, ICHI Sushi opened on Friday, while 7th Street Cafe opened at 525 Seventh St. And Haighteration reports that Ragazza (311 Divisadero) will be opening on Wednesday.

Paolo L. at Inside Scoop

spots a liquor license application indicating that the owners of

Frascati are taking over Iluna Basque (701 Union) and renaming it Campanula Kitchen and Bar. Just FYI: Iluna Basque hasn't shut yet.

  • 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.'"
