Locanda da Eva Closing Its Doors, Chapel Restaurant Takes Shape

Posted By on Fri, Nov 19, 2010 at 7:23 AM

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

San Francisco restaurant scene.

Sad news from Inside Scoop's Paolo L.: After only 4 months, Berkeley's Locanda da Eva (2826 Telegraph, is wrapping things up this weekend. Owner Robert Lauriston, a former SFoodie blogger, gives Scoop a post-mortem that boils down to this: The food was wrong for the neighborhood.

Grub Street's Jay B. acquires a scad of details on the Chapel Restaurant and Second Line Cafe (777 Valencia). A Côté owner Jack Knowles wants to turn the former New School building into a restaurant, a cafe, and a music venue.

According to Eater SF's Carolyn A., Cyrus is not being evicted. Repeat, Cyrus is not being evicted. (Wonder if the scare convinced a ton of four-star-watchers to make "last dinner" reservations?)

Scoop brings word that the upcoming Cow Hollow restaurant The Brixton

(2140 Union) is bringing on Michelle Mah and former Midi colleague Jon

Hara as chefs. The post makes it sound like Mah will stick around long

enough to set the menu and ensure the restaurant's rep, then cede the

kitchen to Hara.

Inside Scoop also shares the news that Sean O'Toole is leaving Bardessono in Yountville to emigrate to San Francisco. But where?

Eater files another short closure report: Los Rosales on 14th and S. Van Ness.

  • 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.'"
