Puerto Alegre's Not, in Fact, Expanding, But Small Potatoes Will Be

Posted By on Thu, Jan 6, 2011 at 7:37 AM


​The past 24 hours in gossip, innuendo, and cold hard facts about the San Francisco restaurant scene.

We lead with a correction from the Feast: Apparently, Puerto Alegre is not moving into Bombay Ice Creamery. So if you want that space, it's yours.

Thrillist reports on the opening of Kasumi (2608 Ocean, Facebook page), a Lakeside spot the Shabu House owners opened in mid-December. The pitch: ramen at lunch, grilled skewers in the evening.

According to Eater, Small Potatoes is changing up its retail operations. The catering company has closed Sweet, its teensy pastry shop on Church, and will instead open up a lunch operation out of its headquarters, at 35 Sixth Street, sometime this spring. The pitch: local, seasonal, etc.

Inside Scoop reports on the closure of Sundance Kitchen, the Hawaiian restaurant in the Kabuki Theater that our John Birdsall loved when he reviewed it a year ago.

  • 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.'"
