Toast Almost Ready to Pop, Cupola Brings Pizza to S.F.'s Last Pizza-Free Block

Posted By on Wed, Jan 26, 2011 at 7:34 AM

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

San Francisco restaurant scene.

Grub Street has been chasing this one down for a few days: The Lark Creek Restaurant Group's new restaurant on the fourth floor of the Westfield San Francisco Centre (the old Zazil space, next to LarkCreekSteak) is going to be called Cupola. The pitch: wood-fired Neapolitan pizza. No, we are not kidding. No, we will not be writing about it either.

According to Inside Scoop, Liberty Cafe in Bernal Heights is expanding its wine-bar nights to Tuesdays-Sundays and introducing a special menu to boot.

Tablehopper IDs another new barbecue truck: Smoke (Twitter: @smokebbqsf)

is parking on weekdays in the Bayview ― 1439 Davidson (at Evans). The

pitch: Kansas City-style barbecue with all the familiar sides.

Tablehopper writes that she's also pretty sure the new branch of Toast at

Pine Polk and Sacramento will open this week. SFoodie passed the restaurant

yesterday and did a little first-person rubbernecking ― the paper was

off the windows, the room looked great, and no one was inside.

  • 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.'"
