Kelly's Mission Rock Closing Before Pride, Capri Gets a Spicy New Name, More!

Posted By on Mon, May 23, 2011 at 5:31 PM


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

Grub Street reports the pending shutter of Kelly's Mission Rock before the end of June. Don't worry, Juanita More!'s post-Pride party is still on, it's just been moved to the Phoenix Hotel for 2011. But what we really want to know is: What will happen to Salsa Sundays!?

Another one bites the dust. After 26 years, news broke in March that Capri Ristorante was set to change ownership. Now Grub Street brings us the name of its replacement: Canela, the Spanish and Italian word for "cinnamon." No word yet on an opening date.

According to Inside Scoop, the former Darla's space won't stay dark for long. Patxi's is poised to take over the Inner Sunset spot by late summer.

From EaterSF, the Castro is gaining two new restaurants. Local health-food chain Beautifull! opened its second third S.F. location last Saturday (2301 Market at Noe), and Ginger Fruit, which will offer Shanghai-Chinese cuisine in Pudong's former space. We agree with Eater: It's definitely an improvement in name.

Via Polk Sheet, Yelp, and EaterSF, there's a new coffee shop on Russian Hill. Independently-owned the Brew (2436 Polk at Filbert) provides free WiFi and a child-friendly environment -- including toys for your tots -- amid a sea of coffee chains on Polk.

And from the Richmond District Blog, Fresh & Easy (32nd Ave. at Clement) will open on June 22. And yes, contrary to Assemblywoman Fiona Ma's stance, it will be selling alcohol.

  • 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.'"
