Plate Shop's New Duo, Rudy's Can't Fail Design, and Southern Charm

Posted By on Mon, Jun 6, 2011 at 5:00 PM


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

The dust has settled at Sausalito's Plate Shop. Since the back of house walkout, led by then executive chef Kim Alter, meat cook Steve Matkovich was filling in. Today, Inside Scoop reports a new chef and general manager are moving in: the former 1550 Hyde duo, chef Peter Erickson and GM Kent Liggett -- let's hope they can piece the Plate Shop back together.

The Feast gives a peek inside Rudy's Can't Fail Cafe's second location, opening today. The punk-rock diner, adjacent to the Fox, interior includes a collection of "I am Rudy" dolls, a superhero-inspired table, Barrel of Monkeys detailing, and an indoor private-dining train car created by co-owner Steve Mills. What's more punk rock than that?

Earlier we mentioned that two Southern-inspired restaurants were moving into San Francisco. The first opened last month, and now Grub Street reports the second, Boxing Room, is set to open on June 16. Expect Southern charm throughout the Cajun and Creole menu.

And Bernalwood sees progress in the old Coco Cafe space. There's a new sign for Melody Cafe, but a peek inside proves it's not nearly ready for its close-up.

  • 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.'"
