Monroe Races to Open, Laura Cunningham's Vita Is Dead

Posted By on Fri, Jan 21, 2011 at 7:30 AM


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

Eater SF on the construction of a new lounge and private-event space in North Beach called Monroe (473 Broadway). The pitch: cocktails, minimal food, and horse porn. Okay, soft porn. Okay, just a glamorous horse picture.

The Inside Scoop print edition reveals that former French Laundry GM Laura Cunningham's Vita in Yountville is not going to happen. Also, Chef Elias Bikahi is out at Georges.

And from Eater SF comes word that Mazu (3809 Geary) in the Inner Richmond has closed.

  • 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.'"
