Pizza Orgasmica Swells, Celeb Chefs Break Up

Posted By on Wed, Feb 16, 2011 at 7:38 AM


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

The Marina Pizza Orgasmica announced to Inside Scoop that it's about to expand into the nail salon next door. SFoodie suggests the pizzeria keep the foot baths warm and bubbling. Orgasmica. (Or gross. Not quite sure.)

Tablehopper reports that Rose Pistola is reopening today after a break and a remodel (courtesy of restaurant specialist Cass Calder Smith). The chef remains the same, but new GM Lisa Robins has reported for duty.

Inside Scoop also reports that Jeremy Fox has left Tyler Florence's restaurant empire after helping the latter open Rotisserie and Wine. As they go their separate ways, Fox is going to write a book, while Florence is going to open a third restaurant. SFoodie hasn't checked their Facebook pages yet to see if they're still friends.

Tablehopper learns that Sarah Burchard, chef de cuisine of Barbacco, is stepping down, citing burnout.

  • 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.'"
