Ecco Reveals Where the Bathrooms Will Be, Joe DiMaggio's One for the Record Books

Posted By on Mon, Nov 1, 2010 at 11:13 AM


The past 72 hours in gossip, innuendo, and cold hard facts about the San Francisco restaurant scene.

Because, well, just because, Eater's Carolyn A. passes along the floor-plan for Potrero Hill's Ecco Caffe (1125 Mariposa), the Santa Rosa microroastery whose owner, Andrew Barnett, has been talking about relocating to S.F. for ages. Of course, chances are you'll forget everything about the design schematics by the time Ecco actually does open, months from now at the soonest. But you can feel at ease right now, knowing precisely where the bathrooms will be.

Inside Scoop's Paolo L. files the Public House/Mijita press release about the mountains of guacamole, rivers of beer, and swimming pools of Bloody Mary mix Traci Des Jardins' ballpark establishments ended up slinging last week during Games 1 and 2 of the World Series.

And those rumors last week about Joe DiMaggio's Italian Chophouse (601 Union) wheezing along on life support? Totally true, as it turns out. Inside Scoop notes the official time of death: End of service last Thursday night. Future "reconcepting" is a possibility. SFoodie is now taking bets on which celebrity the Dudums will resurrect next.

Meanwhile, the Bold Italic's Jon Korn does a bit of banh mi surfing in the Tenderloin and along Clement Street in the Richmond. It's pure Italic, more enthusiastic than exhaustive, but it'll make you hungry. Specially right before lunch.

  • 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.'"
