Brixton Stations Itself in Cow Hollow, Citizen Cake Claims Its New Place

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

San Francisco restaurant scene.


The paper version of Inside Scoop offers news of a new restaurant on Cow Hollow named Brixton (2140 Union St.) from the owners of Mas Sake and the Ambassador (among other places). It should open in mid-December. The pitch: " American bistro with cocktails." 

Just as enticing, Scoop writes in the same post that the new Pacific Heights location of Citizen Cake (2125 Fillmore, www.citizencake.com) should be open in a few weeks.

According to Eater's Carolyn A., you need to postpone those plans to be the first to Yelp about Grub ― the restaurant's not opening until next Thursday. A warning: After overdosing ourselves on micro-updates about the Ike's closure, you're on your own from here on out. Let's hope this is the last one.

Inside Scoop's Paolo L. reports that Anchor & Hope has hired former Town Hall chef Eric Markoff, who also worked under the Rosenthals at Postrio, to be its new chef after Peter Janiak left. Dude clearly knows when he has a good thing going.

Oh, yeah. Scoop (like everyone else) reminds us: the brand-new Una Pizza Napoletana is closed until November 3 while the owners attend a wedding.

  • 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.'"
