When we asked you to ID the easiest-on-the-eyes chefs in San Francisco, Richie Nakano's name kept surfacing, like eggs in a poaching pot. Nakano ditched the restaurant track earlier this year to strike out on his own (he'd been sous at Nopa). Now, Nakano's Hapa Ramen sets up Tuesdays and Thursdays at Ferry Plaza, and regularly pops up elsewhere ― check Hapa's Twitter page to figure out where to spot Nakano. Which, as SFoodie readers well know, is sort of id-stoking in a way that has little to do with soup.

  • 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.'"
