Remi Hayashi, owner of Goody Goodie, and John Quintos, owner of Cento, Special Xtra, and Vega, are opening a new cafe on Harrison Street and 14th. Named StarStream ― after the 1960s-era Lambretta scooter ― the cafe will serve breakfast, lunch, and Blue Bottle coffee Mondays through Fridays. "We're going for the feel of a Roman espresso bar," says Hayashi, "with people stading around drinking espresso."

Hayashi, an Emily Luchetti protégé, will be doing all her baking

out of the new kitchen, allowing her to expand beyond the cookies and

small treats she sells from her window on Folsom (which will remain

open, by the way). She plans to bake breakfast pastries, breads, and

sandwich rolls, as well as more elaborate cakes and tarts. The space

came with a pizza oven, so Hayashi will also be doing individual

Roman-style pizzas at lunch, which she first began baking at Splendido.

"By no means are we throwing our hat into the pizza ring," she says. The

partners are working on beer and wine license, and eventually hope to

do dessert pairings not just with wine but with tea and coffee as well.

With most of the inspections out of the way, the soft opening is

scheduled for October 21. Coffee and pastries should start then, and

Hayashi hopes to roll out the full menu by mid-November.

StarStream: 1830 Harrison (at 14th St.)

  • 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.'"
