Sam Wo Closes and Nopalito's Inner Sunset Opening

Posted By on Thu, Apr 19, 2012 at 4:30 PM

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

After 100 years in Chinatown, the beloved late night hot spot Sam Wo is set to close this weekend. SFoodie named the spot "Chinatown's most charming dive." Owner David Ho told Inside Scoop "the building is too old. It's very sad." Last chance to snag a rice-noodle roll will be Friday. Read more on SFoodie's heartbreak on this tragic news.

The new location of Nopalito brings its familiar crispy crust to Irving Street on Monday. Any upgrades? A menu item special to this Inner Sunset location is the new seared trout dish-- Eater SF has the deets.

Last night Marbella on Polk Street opened for dinner, according to Tablehopper. The Spanish-inspired restaurant is the perfecto spot for tapas and handmade drinks with fresh juices-- a refreshing option among Polk Street's madness.

7x7 has found a food editor to fill the shoes of Sara Deseran after she jumped ship earlier this year to write for San Francisco Magazine. Tablehopper's Marcia Gagliardi will be filling the slot of contributing food editor at 7x7. Scoop reports the new editor's first issue will hit stands in June.

  • 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.'"
