Mission Cheese Fires Up the Panini Maker, Schweet Boks Goes Soggy

Posted By on Tue, Apr 12, 2011 at 7:37 AM


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

The Feast files an exclusive! sneak peek of Mission Cheese, opening tomorow at 736 Valencia (at 18th St.). The pitch: mac and cheese, fromage platters, pressed sandwiches, and cut cheeses from Sarah Dvorak, in a 20-seat (plus sidewalk) café space. Beer and wine is in the works, the Feast notes.

Grub Street clears up any lingering confusion about the opening of the new standalone Ike's Place: It happened Monday. Meanwhile, the Bay Citizen's Scott James, who covers Ike's Place the way a White House pool reporter covers POTUS, documents the start of a Discovery Channel reality shoot at the Castro sandwich shop.

And the Feast takes note of the inevitable: The shuttering of Dexter Cheng's Schweet Boks, at 2142 Irving at 23rd Ave.), the cereal café that opened just last fall. Its replacement: boba place TeaWay Express.

  • 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.'"
