Fire Shutters Moya, Cinco de Mayo Marks Launch of Nico's Tacos

Posted By on Thu, May 5, 2011 at 4:44 PM


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

Grub Street reports that yesterday's SOMA fire in the Park Hotel SRO on Folsom has closed ground-floor restaurant Moya. The SFFD declared the building "structurally unsound"; the Ethiopian restaurant will remain closed until further notice. [Ed. note: Our sister blog, the Snitch, has word that the fire most likely originated on the ground floor and might have involved a few geniuses trying to drunkenly barbecue indoors.]

Just in time for Cinco de Mayo, Eater SF shares that Nico's Tacos (1301 Grant at Vallejo) celebrated its official opening Thursday. In honor of the occasion, and Cinco de Mayo: two-for-one tacos.

And from Thrillist, a more detailed look inside the revamped Paragon (701 Second St. at Townsend). Highlights: reclaimed wood throughout, antique fixtures, and an enormous communal table.

  • 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.'"
