Medjool's Rooftop Return, a Caffeine Buzz, and Heath Ceramics New Place

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

It's legal: Medjool finally has a permit for its rooftop bar. Grub Street reports the Marina crowds' favorite Mission bar Medjool received the okay to operate its open-air rooftop bar after a two-and-half-year permit battle. While the nearby Buddhist center may not be too keen on this recent development, a stipulation includes that owner Gus Murad must keep live music indoors. We have to admit, the view is grand.

Coffee buzz: The battle of the brews begins in the Financial District, as two new coffee shops are slated for the same block. Earlier we mentioned the second Coffee Bar (101 Montgomery at Bush) is readying to open, but today Eater SF shares the latest outpost of L.A.'s Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf is opening just down the street (155 Montgomery at Bush). And since that's not enough caffeine for the FiDi crowd, there's also a Peet's and Starbucks in the vicinity as well.

Local ceramic dishware and tile company Heath Ceramics is expanding, and will open a manufacturing and retail location in the Mission (18th St. at Florida). Inside Scoop shares that the headquarters will remain in Sausalito and that the S.F. location, slated to open in 2012, will focus on Heath's tile line.

  • 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.'"
