Midi Packing It Up, Decantr Getting Ready to Pour

Posted By on Wed, Nov 3, 2010 at 11:20 AM


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

The departure in September of chef Michelle Mah was a forewarning: Midi (185 Sutter), Inside Scoop's Paolo L. writes, is reconcepting under a new leaseholder for the space inside the Galleria Park Hotel. Globe guy Joseph Manzare will finally launch Hecho, Manzare's long-promised mix of sushi and tequila that sounds like the menu for the Katy Perry-Russell Brand wedding. Might be open by mid-February. Or not

Eater's Carolyn A. drops the menu for Decantr, Joshua Skenes' consonant-heavy wine bar at Stable Café (2128 Folsom,, launching adjacent to four-starry Saison next week. Also: You'll be able to order a la carte from Saison's debit-card punishing tasting menus ― but only if you sit outside on the terrace. So there.

And Tablehopper Marcia G. reports on the imminent demise of the Inner Sunset branch of sub shop Toasties (836 Irving,, to be replaced by a place called Crawfish Station. Is S.F. poised for an expansion of the Vietnamese-Cajun crawfish trend Jonathan Kauffman clocked back in June?

  • 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.'"
