Turtle Tower Comes Out of Its Shell in SOMA, Chambers Ready to Dazzle the 'Loin

Posted By on Fri, May 13, 2011 at 3:43 PM


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

LiveSOMA reports that the third location of Turtle Tower (501 Sixth St. at Bryant) is one step closer to opening. The beloved Vietnamese restaurant hopes to start dishing out pho gà by June 1.

The Tender gives an inside look at Chambers, the bar and restaurant replacing long-shuttered Bambuddha Lounge in the Phoenix Hotel (601 Eddy at Larkin). Soft lighting, fire, wood and metal décor ― it looks more like Vegas than the Tenderloin. The velvet rope should drop by May 19.

And from Inside Scoop: Larkspur's Left Bank Brasserie has hired Fabrice Marcon (from the shuttered Mistral Rotisserie Provencale) as executive chef. He replaces Sean Canavan, set to become executive chef of Bluestem Brasserie later this summer.

  • 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.'"
