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

DTF: Grub Street told you what to eat before it unlocked the doors, and yesterday the Richmond District Blog checked out Jersey's, 200 Sixth Ave. (at Cornwall). The pitch: East Coast sandwiches from a couple of West Coast restaurant vets. RDB gushed, "We may have the next Ike's on our hands!" Note to San Francisco eviction lawyers: SFoodie's pretty sure that comment had to do with the potential popularity of Jersey's sandwiches, not future billable hours.

Scraps: And in case you missed it on SFoodie yesterday, Carina Ost peeled back the foil on what just might be San Francisco's most successful recycling effort ever: the leftover-meat burritos that emerge late Saturday from the glassed-in four-stariness of Benu's 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.'"
