Back to Radio Africa's Roots

Posted By on Tue, May 17, 2011 at 2:43 PM

Eskender Aseged. - LEIGH H./YELP

Radio Africa and Kitchen Spring Party

Where: Eskender's Garden, 715 York (at 20th St.)

When: Sat., May 21, 6-11 p.m.

Cost: $55; RSVP to

The rundown: As you may know, Radio Africa and Kitchen is going brick and mortar, making the familiar post-pop-up leap. Before Eskender Aseged sets tables at his legit Bayview restaurant in June, you have one more chance to eat in the garden space where it all began. Aseged is once again opening up his leafy backyard, home to the original Radio Africa dinners back when he was a semi-unknown waiter in a downtown restaurant. The menu will include: wild mushrooms, English peas, and mint gremolata; spring fava bean and edamame hummus with green olive oil; slow-grilled whole trout with pistachios, tomato confit, and preserved lemon; whole goat mechoui with couscous and chermoula; seven-vegetable tagine with wild rice and flaxseed raita; and strawberries with spiced chocolate sauce and citron cream. There will also be a traditional costumed Ethiopian coffee ceremony, and all proceeds from the evening will go toward helping Ethiopian families in need.

  • 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.'"
