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

San Francisco restaurant scene.

Thrillist reports that yesterday was day one for Smokin' Warehouse Barbecue (1465 Carroll Ave., 648-8881). The pitch: All your favorite smoked meats, plus coffee and breakfast dishes in the morning.

Marcia G. at Tablehopper reports that Tataki, the sustainable-sushi restaurant, has launched a spinoff named Tataki South (1740 Church, 282-1889). The pitch: more sushi, plus yakitori and more veg and vegan options.

Also noted by Tablehopper: David Bazirgan is moving from Chez Papa Resto to Fifth Floor. And in the sweets realm, she says that Thermidor's Kyle Caporicci is returning to full-time duties at Campton Place, and Suzanne LaFleur is replacing Sarah Ballard at Perbacco.

One last Tablehopper note: Marcia G. learns of plans to open a cafe named Mirtille (87 McAllister) in the Civic Center area near the end of the year. The pitch: Cafe with French leanings.

  • 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.'"
