Greenburger's to Honor Buffalo, a Tiki Haven Sprouts Up

Posted By on Mon, Feb 21, 2011 at 7:55 AM


The past 72 hours in gossip, innuendo, and cold hard facts about the San Francisco restaurant scene.

Haighteration reveals that the closed Bistro St. Germain spot in the Lower Haight is about to reopen as Greenburger's (518 Haight, at Fillmore, 829-2491, The owners are Matthew Nudelman and Stephanie Greenburg Nudelman. The pitch: meaty, regional American food inspired by Matthew's childhood in Buffalo. 

Grub Street's passion for combing through liquor license applications pays off with the news that Rockit Room owner Tommy Choy is transforming Avenue Lounge into Tiki Haven (1334 Noriega). Given the fact that this was only an application, the opening is probably months away.

A few smaller bits:

  • Solstice Lounge is closed for one week while it rethinks the menu and adds wine on tap. (Eater SF)
  • The 721 Market location of Sellers Market has closed. (Eater SF)
  • The Orbit Room Cafe (1900 Market) has added a pizza oven, a communal table, and new cocktail menu. (7x7)
  • Place Pigalle (520 Hayes) in Hayes Valley had closed due to some brouhaha over not paying taxes, but it supposedly reopened this weekend. (Grub Street)

  • 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.'"
