Leopold's Brings Austro-Italian Food to S.F., One More Steakhouse Joins the Fray

Posted By on Tue, Jan 25, 2011 at 7:23 AM


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

Both Inside Scoop and Grub Street hail the opening of Leopold's (2400 Polk, 474-2000), which started serving dinner this weekend. The pitch: Austro-Italian food ― pappardelle with braised short ribs, Wiener schnitzel, pan-fried trout wrapped in pancetta. 

Thanks to Eater/Hotel Interactive, we learn that Seasons Restaurant, at the Four Seasons Hotel (757 Market), has become a steakhouse. The pitch: steaks from California ranches like Harris and Prather. Given the recent opening of Bourbon Steak and Alexander's Steakhouse, are there enough San Franciscans out there interested in Wagyu filets and USDA Prime porterhouses?

On the farther-out-there front:

  • The opening of Locanda, the Delfina owners' Roman-style restaurant on Valencia and 16th St., is being pushed back to March (via Eater SF).
  • Tanya Holland is going to open a second Brown Sugar Kitchen at 5800 Third Street in San Francisco; she's hoping for a late spring opening (via Inside Scoop). Given San Francisco permitting delays ... think early fall.

  • 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.'"
