So Long Al, Adios Bangkok 16 ― Say Hello to New England Tacos

Posted By on Thu, May 19, 2011 at 5:08 PM


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

Another goodbye to a long-standing neighborhood institution: Grub Street reports the shuttering of Al's Café Good Food. After 50 years, the Bernal Heights' diner closed in April; on Facebook, owner Jean Joseph and her sister Joanne called it a "bittersweet goodbye." A new restaurant and management team will be moving into the space.

Via UrbanDaddy, Grub Street gives an opening date for Tacko (3115 Fillmore at Filbert). The Nantucket-slash-Mexican taco shop from Nick Fasanella (Nick's Crispy Tacos and Taco Shop at Underdogs) is priming to open next Thursday. Expect the usual Nick favorites, along with East Coast-influenced seafood dishes.

Finally, yet another farewell: Eater shares (via MrEricSir) that Bangkok 16 has closed after 23 years in the Mission.

  • 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.'"
