Rock Candy Snack Shop Theft and Cafe Mereb Slated to Close

Posted By on Thu, Dec 8, 2011 at 4:01 PM


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

Bah humbug: Bernalwood shares the story of the still new Rock Candy Snack Shop owner being sweet enough to grab a glass of water for a patron, who repaid her by running off with her laptop. Well, that's not very festive at all. We hope the police are able to track down the scrooge.

Richmond Blog SF learns the Mediterranean restaurant Cafe Mereb on Clement will close before the end of the year. The small outpost of stores on the 1500 block are slightly isolated, and eclectic: Hot Sauce and Panko, San Francisco Brewcraft, Raymond Chu Hair Studio, and Universal Electric Service. We're curious to see what store may move into the spot.

Coming soon: There's a new Japanese restaurant heading to Glen Park. Tablehopper reveals Tataki Canyon (from the Tataki team) is slated to start rolling out sushi on Dec. 13. While Inside Scoop and Grub Street discover the California-Italian restaurant Per Diem is readying to open its doors in the Financial District on Dec. 16.

Eater SF spots a pending restaurant, K.O. Kombo, on Irving, but no word yet on the cuisine, the opening date, or for that matter, what K.O. stands for.

  • 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.'"
