Pappy's Comes Off the Bench, Fiveten Burger Pays the Bay Bridge Toll

Posted By on Tue, May 17, 2011 at 5:05 PM


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

Via the Daily Cal, Inside Scoop reports that Berkeley's defunct Blake's on Telegraph will reopen as Pappy's Grill and Sports Bar, trading live music and DJs for televisions. Pappy's should be open before the start of Cal's football season.

Also from Scoop, it's official: After 19 years, Ti Couz closed for good last Sunday.

LiveSOMA reports that a new Mediterranean restaurant, Oasis Cafe Grill, is set to open Monday at 200 Fourth St. (at Howard) in the old Jollibee space, next to the defunct Red Ribbon Bakeshop. Should prove to be a very popular lunch spot.

Meanwhile, 7x7 grabs a bite from new East Bay burger truck Fiveten Burger during a press preview on the eve of its first day on this side of the Bay Bridge at Off the Grid: Civic Center.

The Feast spots Hodo Soy's new kiosk in the Ferry Building, which opened today. In addition to Hodo's usual farmers' market offerings, there are soy-based offerings like smoothies, salads, and sandwiches.

Eater SF shares three pending openers: Pacific Height's Dumpling and Buns, a Chinese dumpling shop featuring the family recipes of owner May Lee, should be open by mid-July.

The second, a cardboard sign in the window at 524 Union, announces French restaurant Le Bordeaux. Peering through the windows, Eater notices a wood bar and small seating area near the front. The cardboard sign fails to mention an opening date.

And via Thrillist, Eater takes a look at Oozora Sake House (5120 Geary at 15th Ave.), which has officially been open since mid-April. The pitch: a very dangerous mix of Japanese alcohol and DIY s'mores.

  • 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.'"
