The Port Kicks Out Teatro ZinZanni, Metreon Brings in La Boulange and Others

Posted By on Thu, Jan 20, 2011 at 8:00 AM

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

The Chronicle breaks the news that, in preparation for the America's Cup, the port is kicking out Teatro ZinZanni and 76 other waterfront tenants. The dinner-theater spectacle has until the end of this year to find a new home.

Eater SF hears from Yamen Eltawil, owner of Palmyra (700 Haight), that his Lower Haight restaurant may open next Monday. The pitch: all-day cafe with Mediterranean bent, especially at dinner.

Inside Scoop gets its (uh, digital) hands on some of the architectural drawings of the Metreon renovation. Coming street-level restaurants: La Boulange BakeryBest-O-BurgerChipotleMixt GreensBrandy Ho's Hunan. New tenants in the expanded food court: Coriander Thai, San Francisco Soup Co., Saigon Eats, and So Green Yogurt.

Another Scoop scoop: Super Duper, the Castro burger spot run by the Starbelly team, wants to take over an existing Jack in the Box in Mill Valley (at 430 Miller Ave., to be exact), wrap it in solar panels, and keep the drive-through running. If the city approves, the burger joint will aim for a late summer opening.

  • 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.'"
