  • Glenn "Gator" Thompson will begin by introducing a stand-alone BBQ menu to The Grill.

Glenn "Gator" Thompson was chef-owner of Gator's Neo Soul Cafe in downtown San Mateo from 2007-2009 before getting his current gig at Bayonne Casual Southern Dining in San Jose. This week, Thompson brings his BBQ back to San Mateo, partnering with Mohammad Azad, owner of The Grill, a small restaurant located at the San Mateo Commons Shopping Center, just off Highway 92.

SFoodie has learned that initially, Gator's BBQ menu will coexist with The Grill's current American diner and kabob menu, and be available on the right side as you enter the restaurant, 10 a.m.-7 p.m. Plans call for an all-you-can-eat BBQ for $10.95 -- the rest of the a la carte menu will be transformed over time. If everything goes according to plan, expect a Thursday launch. Bring your appetite.

The Grill: 1855 S. Delaware (at 19th Ave.), San Mateo, 650-577-9999. Mon.-Fri. 6 a.m.-9 p.m., Sat-Sun 7 a.m.-9 p.m.

  • 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.'"
