Yigit Pura's Teatro ZinZanni Menu, Prime Dip Opens, and Free Farm Stand's Troubles

Posted By on Thu, Sep 29, 2011 at 4:25 PM

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

The confetti and fanfare that is Teatro ZinZanni is readying to relocate at the end of the year, but its menu will see changes in October. Grub Street reports chef Yigit Pura is readying to create a new five-course menu for the dinner-and-show spectacle. Earlier this year we experienced Teatro ZinZanni, and while the show was over the top, the food was bit of a snooze, so we're excited to see what Pura has in store.

The month-old Reed & Greenough has imposed a dress code. Eater SF shares, via PopSugar, that bar-goers need to leave the flip-flops and baseball hats at home. We're guessing the Marina bar is trying to avoid some of the clientele that frequented the old haunt Gravity.

No more buns, just dip: The Tender shares Tenderloin's What's Up Dog? has been replaced with Prime Dip; yes, it serves sandwiches with hot au jus (518 Larkin at Turk).

Oh, not open yet: Eater SF shares Dear Mom, the bar slated for the old El Rincon space will open closer to the end of October, and right on its heels will be Claudine, the third Claude Lane restaurant from Franck LeClerck, which is set to open Nov. 1. Bernalwood shares Precita Café should be open in about a month.

Potentially Free Farm Stand's last stand: Mission Local shares the Rec and Parks Department has received four complaints about the stand creating a "disruption." The stand, in operation since 2008, grows produce inside the city limits and then distributes on Sundays at Parque Niños Unidos. Fingers crossed the stand and the city can find a happy medium.

  • 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.'"
