Chotto Brings Izakaya Fare to the Marina; Chez Papa Resto Names New Chef (and Some Random Ike's News)

Posted By on Fri, Oct 15, 2010 at 7:30 AM

​The past 48 hours in gossip, innuendo, and cold hard facts about the

San Francisco restaurant scene.

According to Paolo L. of Inside Scoop, an izakaya to be named Chotto (3317 Steiner) is taking the place of Three Seasons, the Vietnamese restaurant that closed last week. It hopes to open mid-December. The pitch: lots of small plates and grilled skewers, with weekend sushi imported from Japan.   

Via Facebook, Ike's Place has a new Stanford location, and is begging SFSU students to lobby their campus administrators to start up a branch there. 

Inside Scoop got the memo first: Chez Papa Resto has a new chef -- Steven Rojas, who's moving up from LA from Patina (and also has worked at TRU in Chicago). Rojas replaces David Bazirgan, who's moved to Fifth Floor.

Scoop also finds two new entertainment businesses that will serve food: a bowling alley in the Mission named Brooklyn Bowl, and a comedy club in the AMC Van Ness building called Holly's.

  • 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.'"
