  • Owners of Glen Park's Red and White wine bar have remade the place as Sel et Vin.

This week Glen Park residents welcomed a new upscale oyster and wine bar to the neighborhood. How do we know? SFoodie was dining at Le P'tit Laurent across the street, when charismatic owner Laurent Legendre approached us to inform all his regular customers of this new venture, his partnership with Peter Bell and Juliana Flores, to transform their year-old Red and White wine bar and retail shop. After a month-long remodel, Sel et Vin ("salt and wine" in French) opened its doors on Tuesday, and it's been packed with customers ever since.

The bivalve menu features six West Coast varieties: Kumamoto, Tomales Bay, Miyagi, Fanny Bay, Hama, and Syster Point. Prices are moderate: $12-$14 per half-dozen, $22-$27 for a dozen, and $40-$52 for two dozen, all served with red wine-shallot vinegar and cocktail sauce. The rest of the appetizer-style menu lists an onion soup ($6.95), two salads (smoked trout and smoked salmon), a charcuterie plate ($15), cheese plate ($16), and a few snacks. The wine repertoire remains the same as before at Red and White, approximately $5-$15 per glass and $27-$76 per bottle.

Now open:

Sel et Vin: 678 Chenery (at Diamond), 333-2200. Open Tue.-Thu. and Sun., 5:30-10 p.m.; Fri.-Sat., 5:30 p.m.-1 a.m.; closed Mon. Hours subject to change, depending on demand.

  • 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.'"
