XYZ Ends Its Run, Ike's Place Begins a New One

Posted By on Mon, Apr 11, 2011 at 7:47 AM


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

Local food media might be the only non-tourists to notice that restaurant XYZ in S.F.'s hotel W (181 Third St., at Howard) closed yesterday. Its replacement: Trace, due this summer. The pitch: locavorean emphasis (the name comes from "traceability," which refers to the ingredient-sourcing), complete with its own forager on the payroll, from XYZ's chef Paul Piscopo.

And will Ike's Place open today in its new permanent Castro spot, at 3489 16th St. (at Sanchez)? Owner Ike Shehadeh shut down the temporary Ike's @ Lime on Friday. And while buzz swirled that the new place might open Saturday, it looks like that didn't happen. Grub Street trolls Facebook and speculates the new Ike's might launch today. Frankly, SFoodie has no clue.

  • 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.'"
