Naked Lunch Taking Over Enrico's Main Room, Specialty's Closes

Posted By on Mon, Feb 28, 2011 at 7:54 AM


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

Inside Scoop has been closely following the closure of Enrico's last month. One puzzling detail: Naked Lunch, the sandwich shop located in the Enrico's takeout area, stayed open. Now comes the eureka: Naked Lunch owners Ian Begg and Ryan Maxey have been angling at moving into the main room. Their Basque restaurant, Txoko (504 Broadway), may open as soon as April. Naked Lunch will remain open during and after the remodeling. The pitch: pintxos, small plates, dishes from a wood-fired oven.

Just a reminder, SFoodie broke word that the China Basin Specialty's has closed, which means no more Weekly writers walking through the office sucking the melted chocolate off their fingers.

  • 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.'"
