Mark Zuckerberg's Kill Displayed, i-Skewers, and Stroganoff's Russian and Thai Food

Posted By on Tue, Dec 20, 2011 at 4:00 PM

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

There's a large, looming bison head mounted to the wall of a Facebook conference room, and while Refinery 29 couldn't confirm the buffalo (in the picture from All Things D) was indeed killed by Mark Zuckerberg, we're assuming Facebook wouldn't mount just any trophy. If you'll remember, Zuckerberg made the commitment earlier this year to only eat animals he killed, which makes for a lot of bison burgers.

Skewers in the Sunset: Eater SF shares that the former Shabu Lounge is now i-Skewers. The techy-named Chinese restaurant is serving dim sum and other snacks, as well as the foods-on-sticks (2407 Judah at 29th Ave.).

Well, it's definitely different. Stroganoff, the new Russian restaurant at Fisherman's Wharf has a unique menu addition -- Thai food. Inside Scoop reports owner Alex Rabinovich has opened a Russian restaurant in the former Mood Thai space, and has decided to keep the former tenant's menu alongside his own.

The pop-up Juhu Beach Club is making the jump to permanent restaurant. Grub Street reveals  that Preeti Mistry's California-Indian restaurant is slated for the Mission. But it will still be popping-up for awhile, as Mistry's in the ever-long process of securing the right permits. As of Jan. 5, Juhu Beach Club will be popping up in La Victoria on Thursdays.

  • 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.'"
