Chef Josie Smith-Malave hopes that locals in San Francisco will be hankering for local food from 3,000 miles away -- Cuban-inspired Miami food, to be exact.

The "Top Chef" alumnus is hitting the ever-trendy pop-up scene with three Saturday dinners in a row at the Corner in the Mission, starting with a "Miami Nights" theme for Saturday night, Sept. 17, from 5-11 p.m.

In keeping with the moniker "Global Soul Café," Smith-Malave's offerings this first Saturday include ropa viejo, a Cuban-style shredded flank steak; fufu, a thick starchy plantain dish; pernil con mojo, a pork shoulder roast with garlic sauce; bocaditos, small finger sandiches; and croquetas de jamon, Spanish ham and cheese croquettes.

Next week will be Italian, Smith-Malave says, and the following week is still TBD but will likely focus on San Francisco's local food.

For more information, call the Corner at (415) 875-9258.

  • 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.'"
