Let's Roll, a newcomer to Irving Street's bustling snack strip that billed itself as a a roll-your-own sushi bar back in August, has now opened. Only now, it's a tonkatsu (breaded and fried cutlet) house. The sign out front reflects the change.

We're not sure what prompted the cold feet, but after tasting specimens of both the tonkatsu (pork tenderloin, $6.99; bacon wrapped asparagus, $7.99) and sushi (krab California roll, $1.99), it appears the owners made the right choice. And, for the record, we still think someone could do well with a roll your own sushi restaurant if done well.

Let's Roll: 2150 Irving (at 23rd Ave.)

  • 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.'"
