Celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain of No Reservations fame is visiting San Francisco, according to his Twitter feed. And where does a famous chef choose to eat his lunch?

  • Secret TV star seafood stew?

Bourdain just posted this photo on Twitter, and SF Weekly's resident food experts have determined it was probably taken at the Swan Oyster Depot. Looks like he's having some seafood stew -- maybe it's the off-the-menu TV-superstar special we heard about last month.

But that's not all he's been up to.

If his Twitter feed is to be trusted, Bourdain has been in S.F. since Monday at least. Yesterday, he sampled Chaac-Mool's stand in Dolores Park, which he described as "terrific, freshly made Mexican food," followed by "festive beverages" at Toronado.

Last night, he went barhopping in North Beach and Chinatown, with the obligatory late-night munchies stop:

Stay tuned -- we might just Twitter-stalk him all day.

  • 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.'"
