American Grilled Cheese Kitchen Melts Food & Wine, Nanobreweries Catch Buzz

Posted By on Thu, Oct 28, 2010 at 12:55 PM


​The past 24 hours in gossip, innuendo, and cold hard facts about the San Francisco restaurant scene.

Head scratcher: Food & Wine's listicle on Best U.S. Restaurant Openings made a stop in San Francisco. Representing locally: The American Grilled Cheese Kitchen. Um, is that even technically a restaurant?

The Bay Guardian's Caitlin D. files a report on S.F. nanobreweries, places like Elizabeth Street Brewery and Pacific Brewing Laboratories, where beer makers somewhere between garagistes and commercial brewers stoke their craft with the dedication of a guy rebuilding the engine of his '65 Mustang on weekends. Not surprisingly, huge quantities of beer figure in both cases.

Credo's reviews have been mostly meh, saving the sedanini, though that's not the reason, according to Eater's Carolyn A., that chef Mario Maggi is making for the back door. He has health issues. Ex-sous Gustavo Romero is stepping up.

Grub Street's Jay B. spins the newslet about Limon Rotisserie expanding to the Bayview, a 2,500-square-foot-place in Carroll Station (5800 Third St.). A second Crossroads Café is expected there, too, says Grub Street. That's not far from Bayview Town Center (4800 Third St.), where Radio Africa & Kitchen's Eskender Aseged is expected to set aside the popup for good. You can kick yourself now for not buying that Bayview condo when it was supercheap.

  • 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.'"
