Oh Yes, It's Nojo. And a Sustainable Seafood Market for the Wharf? Hell Yes!

Posted By on Wed, Mar 30, 2011 at 6:39 PM


Today in gossip, innuendo, and cold hard facts about the San Francisco restaurant scene.

We'll let Inside Scoop call it: Nojo is now open at 231 Franklin St. (at Hayes) ― it's a mod, stylish-looking Hayes Valley izakaya place by longtime Ame presence Gregory Dunmore. And Bun Mee, a casual Viet fusion place at 2015 Fillmore (at California) is already doing its fusion thing, despite an official opening date of April 1.

The Feast catches a whiff of plans coalescing around the Fisherman's Wharf Seafood Market on Pier 45, a source of sustainable seafood likely to begin as an online wholesale business, then, perhaps, evolve into a walk-up public market.

Inside Scoop keeps an eye on the chef change at fancy, fusiony Bushi-Tei, where Seiji "Waka" Wakabayashi is out, replaced by Jardiniere vet Michael Hung.

More involving Jardiniere veterans: Scoop notes that planned Locanda bar manager Brian MacGregor won't be gripping the cocktail shakers after all at the Delfina sibling when it opens in coming weeks. No word on why.

And Noe Valley SF works up a thirst over a rumored craft beer bar for the neighborhood, then sees it dissolve like an hour-old head of foam on a Pilsner. Bummer, dude.

  • 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.'"
