Talk of Dungeness mysteriously fades after Thanksgiving, but our crab season isn't over yet. There are few better ways to celebrate it than butter. Lots of butter. Woodhouse Fish Company's crab roll, in fact, represents the intersection of butter and crustacean: a thick slice of buttered bread crisped on the grill, then sliced in half and stuffed with warm, buttered fresh Dungeness crab. A few bites, and you begin to wonder if the chunks of coral-tinged fluff were actually some ethereal surimi formed of sweet, fresh Jersey cream. Squeeze a lemon wedge over top and take another bite, and the sea-sweet, mineral-tinged crustacean flavor emerges. SFoodie enjoyed our crab roll immensely ― the small sandwich was quite enough to satisfy us until next year ― then came home and fixed ourselves a pint of steamed broccoli.

Woodhouse Fish Company: 2073 Market (at 14th St.), 437-2722.

  • 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.'"
