David Lynch's St. Vincent, Another Philz Coffee, and Goodbye Cala Foods

Posted By on Mon, Nov 21, 2011 at 4:00 PM


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

David Lynch, wine director of Cotogna and Quince, is readying to embark on his own restaurant venture. Inside Scoop divulges he'll take over the space that currently houses the wine bar Heart, which is set to close Dec. 10, and remodel it into an American-styled osteria: St. Vincent. Of course there will be plenty of wine on the menu. Look for an opening in early to mid 2012.

The single-cup brew with mint garnish that is Philz Coffee is readying to open another shop. Eater SF learns, via BeyondChron, that in addition to the pending Noe Valley location, Hastings Law School CFO David Seward, asked the slow-brew coffee shop to move into a vacant spot at their Tenderloin campus location. No word yet on an opening date.

The plans for the mixed-use space at the corner of Hyde at California, are going forward, which means the 24-hour Cala Foods will make way for a Trader Joe's. The Tender discovers the last day to grab what's left on the shelves will be Dec. 3.

In a continued effort to break away from the former tenant's clientele, Reed & Greenough, are implementing something beyond their dress code: bar bites. Grub Street shares, via Popsugar, 15 Romolo's Larry Piaskowy has created menu of cheese plates and spreads.

  • 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.'"
