Stealing Veggies, New Chefs, and the Pastry Cupboard Opens

Posted By on Fri, Sep 2, 2011 at 4:15 PM


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

We're not sure who would be the type to steal garden veggies, but Bernalwood shares that someone is raiding the community garden. We assume the culprit has eaten the evidence.

New chefs in the kitchen: Quince and Cotogna's new pastry chef is Devin McDavid. Inside Scoop reports McDavid joins chef Michael Tusk in the kitchen after a stint as the pastry chef de partie at the French Laundry. Grub Street shares, via Bite Club, chef Adam Mali is making the move from Pt. Reyes' Nick's Cove to the city's MarketBar.

Gain one, lose one: Late last month the Financial District's Ramen Underground opened, but today Eater SF shares that the Tenderloin's three-year-old Asuka Ramen has shuttered.

Our own Jonathan Kauffman reports the Sunset's Vietnamese-Cajun restaurant SJ Crawfish has closed. In its place will be a Rice Valley mooncake popup -- opening tomorrow (2333 Irving at 24th Ave.).

And Tablehopper reminds us today's the first day to start ogling over sweets at the Pastry Cupboard's storefront (1596 Market St. at Franklin).

  • 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.'"
