Sweet Jo's Leaves the JCC, the Lineup Lives Again

Posted By on Tue, Dec 21, 2010 at 7:45 AM


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

San Francisco restaurant scene.

In sad news for JCC members, Inside Scoop reports that Joanna Karlinsky and Victoria Smiser will be closing Sweet Jo's, their food court in the Center, in a few weeks. SFoodie has seen several cafes come and go at the JCC in recent memory. Karlinsky told Scoop she hopes to move the cafe ― and her amazing Meetinghouse biscuits ― to another location.

Leticia Luna tells Eater SF that she's planning on resurrecting The Lineup (398 Seventh St.), the bar she operated in the space for 26 years. (From 2005 to 2009 it was the Overtime Sports Bar & Grill.) She'll serve both Mexican and American food, and introduce a more serious cocktail program.

Just to correct an oversight: SFoodie has learned from contributor Tamara Palmer that Tasty Curry (1395 Ninth Ave.) closed at the beginning of December.

  • 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.'"
