Locanda da Eva Spruces Up, Things Are Popping Outside San Francisco

Posted By on Thu, Nov 11, 2010 at 8:11 AM

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

San Francisco restaurant scene.

Locanda da Eva in Berkeley shut down for the long weekend to redecorate, and Carolyn A. of Eater SF posts pics of the new look. SFoodie says: niiiiiiice. 

San Francisco gossip was apparently slim yesterday, but there was a host of out-of-town news:
  • Per Inside Scoop: Sakoon, the tony Indian restaurant in Mountain View, has a new chef named Alex Xalxo, who was brought west from New York.
  • Meanwhile, reports Grub Street, former Sakoon chef Sachin Chopra is just about to open his new San Mateo restaurant, All Spice. The pitch: Indian-European cooking.
  • Via Eater SF, we learned that Whole Foods Blossom Hill (San Jose) opened, while the Chron reports that the opening of Whole Foods Castro is looking stalled.
  • Another Eater find: L'appart Resto in San Anselmo is on the market. Count your pennies: It's only $250K.

  • 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.'"
