Cotogna Opens, Gary Danko Spinoff Still on Track

Posted By on Mon, Nov 8, 2010 at 9:41 AM


​The past 72 hours in gossip, innuendo, and cold hard facts about the

San Francisco restaurant scene.

In case you hadn't heard, Michael and Lindsay Tusk's Cotogna (490 Pacific, 775-8508) opens tonight.

Even though the Bank of Scotland is foreclosing on Ghirardelli Square, leaving the tenant shops worried over their leases, Scoop reports that Gary Danko's new restaurant concept (still being described only as an "American brasserie") is still on track to open in the square. No bank would be idiotic enough to nix such a guaranteed hype magnet, but it's a glad piece of news nonetheless.

Trivia to impress your friends with:

  • Grub Street's Jay B. just reported that Meadowood pastry chef Matt Tinder has moved over to newly Michelin-starred Saison.  
  • Eater says Michael Mina has just started up lunch.
  • Tablehopper learns that Ozumo has a new chef, Alex Morgan, with a resume that includes Arzak and several Tokyo restaurants. In fact, Morgan's already been working at Ozumo. Consider his new gig a promotion.

  • 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.'"
