Nick Balla Reveals His Hungarian History, the Edge Folds

Posted By on Thu, Jan 27, 2011 at 7:18 AM

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

Inside Scoop talks to Nick Balla, the former Nombe chef who's taking over the kitchen at Bar Tartine when Chris Kronner leaves, and finds out that under his direction the classically Californian restaurant is going to skew Eastern European. (Balla lived in Budapest for three years.) 

Grub Street reports that the Edge, the man's man's manbar in the Castro, has closed. All men's men wandering around the Castro should now report to 440 Castro.

SF Citizen has spotted its first announcement that the new Whole Foods on Stanyan will be celebrating opening day on Feb. 16.

  • 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.'"
