Wise Sons Expansion, Humphry Slocombe's Tuesday Scoops, and the bar Tonight

Posted By on Thu, Oct 6, 2011 at 4:00 PM


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

Kugel, rye bread, and matzo ball soup find a home in the Mission. Inside Scoop reports Wise Sons, the Jewish deli from Evan Bloom and Leo Beckerman, plans to open a permanent location on the corner of 24th St. (at Shotwell). They'll be serving customers chopped liver by early 2012.

The Mission won't be the only place we'll find Wise Sons' deli pickles. Inside Scoop also shares that the Jewish deli, along with Humphry Slocombe, is joining the Ferry Plaza's Tuesday Farmers Market. Also slated to take over a full-fledged vendor spot is SodaCraft, which currently shares the Hapa Ramen space. Each stand will move into the market over the course of the month.

New parklet: Bernalwood shares Harvest Hills, a small grocery bordering Precita Park, is in the planning stages of adding a few seats, plants, and chess boards, in a few parking spots adjacent to the building. Let's just hope they don't forget parklets are for all.

Places you can't eat at yet: Eater SF shares the Marina's Super Duper is slated to start slinging burgers Oct. 14, a week after Umami Burger opens, and Bayview's Third Street Corridor may welcome Límon Rotisserie near the end of the month.

Grub Street reports the soju bar Tonight is also not open yet, but its liquor license has been approved (733 Taraval at 17th Ave.). Soon we'll all be able to say we're going to Tonight tonight.

And the Feast shares the new Boathouse and Café at Stow Lake opened today as planned. The new fleet of paddle boats are ready to leave the dock as well - once the rain stops.

  • 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.'"
