Whole Lot of Restaurants Freshening Up These Days

Posted By on Wed, Feb 23, 2011 at 7:29 AM

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

We're still in the restaurant industry's slow month. That means a lot of downtime for renovations, pick-me-ups, and new directions:

  • According to SFoodie, Tres Agaves is closing until Mar. 3 to remodel. Inside Scoop adds that the bar-restaurant is renaming itself Tres to separate it from the Tres Agaves tequila label.
  • Live SoMa learns that ThirstyBear is closing for remodeling until Friday, Feb. 25.
  • Eater and Grub Street tag-team to inform us that the wine bar connected to Saison, Decantr, is closing until Mar. 1 to tweak the concept. Wine stays, cooked food goes ― it'll be mostly a raw bar.

Feast reports on the opening of My Ivy (1901 Divisadero, at Pine, 567-9443) in Pacific Heights. The pitch: neighborhood Thai.

Lastly, a new chef: According to Inside Scoop, Radius in SOMA has hired Matt Kerley, last the chef of Magnolia, to run its kitchen.

  • 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.'"
