Weird Fish and the Corner Set to Change, and Cassava Bakery + Cafe Slate to Open

Posted By on Wed, Feb 22, 2012 at 3:30 PM

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

Ch-ch-ch-changes: Weird Fish and the shuttered the Corner are undergoing transfer to new ownership, according to Inside Scoop. With this will come new monikers: Dante's Weird Fish and the Perch. Expect the new Weird Fish, which will reopen after a short closure starting this Saturday, to have more emphasis on, well, fish. The Perch will be a European-style cafe, featuring small plates, and should open in about two months.

Second try: Tablehopper reports, via Local Addition, that Ivan Hopkins is still working on opening a restaurant and brewery, this time on Divisadero. He's still jumping through the hoops of the permit process, but if all goes to plan, he'll open Barrel Head Brew House in an old auto body shop in the Western Addition.

Outer Richmond will welcome Cassava Bakery + Cafe this Monday. Tablehopper says to expect Ritual Roasters coffee alongside breakfast and lunch dishes from the former pop-up duo chef Kristoffer Toliao (Luce) and his wife Yuka Loroi (Starbelly).

Something we missed for last week: Eater SF confirms that after only six months Le Bordeaux has shuttered. While the restaurant was sans liquor license upon opening, they did eventually secure one, but it wasn't enough. Au revoir.

Also, a closure from earlier this year. Tablehopper learns, via a reader, that the Mission's Deli-Up Cafe has been closed since early 2012.

  • 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.'"
