City Beer Store's Got More, Show Dogs' New Charcutier, and Alioto-Lazio Fish Co.'s Return

Posted By on Wed, Oct 12, 2011 at 4:30 PM

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

Bottoms up in SOMA: City Beer Store's expansion is complete. Urban Daddy shares that the new private tasting room (complete with two-way mirrors) and expanded tap selection (15!) will debut Thursday. LiveSOMA notices Bluxome Street Winery for the first time since its soft September opening. We're intrigued by the fact the tasting room has large window into their wine-making facility (53 Bluxome at Fourth St.).

Changes in the kitchen: Show Dogs' let us know the new in-house charcutier is Peter Temkin (Nopa, Spruce). With his arrival, he brings five new sausages to the menu.

Over at Magnolia Brewery's pending Dogpatch location, Tablehopper discovers Dennis Lee will be heading up the kitchen, and also finds out that Ronnie New will be returning as chef to the Haight location after a two-year Magnolia hiatus.

After 70 years, Alioto-Lazio Fish Co. closed indefinitely last winter due to construction surrounding oil spill cleanup efforts, but -- they're back. Eater SF shares, via CBS Local, that the all-female run fish company is readying to start the crabbing season.

After 12 years in S.F., the Mexican restaurant Maya is closing, reports Inside Scoop. No word yet on why, but if you're a fan, there's still time to get a few more tacos before their Friday closure.

The Free Farm Stand will remain standing: Mission Local shares, despite a few neighbors' complaints, the Sunday stand has received a six-month permit allowing it to remain in Parque Niños Unidos. The city will reevaluate the free produce stand's permit when it comes up for renewal in Spring 2012.

Two new restaurants open: Tablehopper reports that Hisago, a Japanese restaurant in Laurel Heights is now serving donburi and ramen (3226 Geary at Spruce), and Krua Thai is serving lunch and dinner in the Mission (3214 16th St. at Guerrero).

Food Truck News: Urban Daddy shares that Avedano's Meat Wagon will go mobile on Monday. The extension of the Bernal Heights butchery will be parking at the Hayes Valley Proxy Project.

  • 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.'"
