Just The Chairman Now, Hops & Hominy, Maestro, Parallel 37 to Open this Winter

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

Dropping the bao: The food truck formerly known as the Chariman Bao, has altered their moniker to the Chairman. According to the statement they sent us, chef Hiroo Nagahara says, "We decided to change our name as the truck shifts in direction to include more than just bao." That's funny, we thought they changed the name due to a trademark infringement lawsuit.

The former Trader Vic's space is getting a new life as a French-American bistro. Inside Scoop reveals Maestro, from the owners of Burlingame's La Boheme, should open in December.

The latest Southern joint slated to open in the City is Hops & Hominy. Eater SF states the Union Square restaurant should be open by January and the menu will feature both friend chicken and a raw bar. Interesting.

The new name is already more hip than the Dining Room at the Ritz Carlton. Parallel 37 will be the new name of the restaurant from Ron Siegel. With the news from Inside Scoop, comes the equally as modern logo.

Louisiana Fried Chicken apparently kicked Taco's Sandwiches out of their Sixth St. location, according to LiveSOMA. Hopefully Taco can find a new location for the sandwich shop.

  • 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.'"
