La Oaxaqueña's Return, Gordon Ramsay Will Yell at More People, and Drinks at the W Hotel

Posted By on Wed, Sep 28, 2011 at 4:30 PM


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

Back from the brink: While it looked as though La Oaxaqueña's brick-and-mortar was a goner, Eater SF shares it's readying for a comeback. Closed since August, the Mexican restaurant says it'll be back soon, and with a new menu. (We're guessing they won't try to reinstate grasshopper tacos.)

Earlier we mentioned Gordon Ramsay was on his way to Fremont to film an episode of Kitchen Nightmares. Now Grub Street reports he's expanding his yelling-tirades to include those in the hotel and motel business. The new show, Hotel Hell, is currently casting in state. Oh joy.

The partners behind both Tataki Sushi and Tataki South are set to open their third sushi restaurant in the shuttered Sel et Vin space (678 Chenery at Diamond). Tablehopper shares, via the Glen Park Association newsletter, the restaurant name and menu is in progress, but they plan to serve rolls and sashimi by December.

Just in time for techie descent on the Moscone Center for the Oracle convention, the W Hotel (sitting catty-corner from the site) is reopening their lobby bar and library bar. Grub Street reports they should both be open by Friday.

  • 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.'"
