New Pop-Up Location, 2223 to Become Jake's on Market, and Rock Candy Snack Shop Opens

Posted By on Mon, Sep 12, 2011 at 5:20 PM


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

Pop-ups sure are popular, and starting this Friday there will be yet another location for chefs to appear. B3 is set to morph into a pop-up hosting, wine tasting venue called Winemakers' Speakeasy (1152 Valencia at 22nd St.). Grub Street reports the last night for B3 is Thursday, and the quick switch will include wines from a variety of producers and a small food menu. No word yet on who will be the first chef to visit the kitchen.

The 16-year-old 2223 Restaurant is set to transform into Jake's on Market. Inside Scoop reports the new owners, Tim Travelstead and Brad Becker, are naming the place after their kid, want to keep the current staff, and plan to offer a wider selection of American fare at affordable prices, which goes well with their plan to keep the place "neighborhood friendly." No word yet on when 2223 will close, but they plan to open Jake's early next year.

Remodels: Quince's bar space is set to change its interior and menu. Inside Scoop shares there will be a more defined space between the dining room and bar, and that the remodel should be complete by Nov 1.

Meanwhile the prolonged remodel of the long-shuttered La Rondalla should be done later this year. Eater SF shares, via Mission Local, that the owner turned the business over to his daughters, who plan to reopen a more modern version of the restaurant. Rest assured, the margaritas will remain unchanged.

While not imminent, Caffe Bella Venezia's shutter is coming. Grub Street reports the Nob Hill Italian restaurant will close in the next few months, and be replaced by a Thai restaurant.

For those with a sweet tooth, there's another place to buy all things sugary. Bernalwood shares that Rock Candy Snack Shop is open (521 Cortland at Andover) and focusing on artisan and organic American-made candies. We feel the cavities setting in now.

  • 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.'"
