Greens executive chef/owner Annie Somerville collaborated with her pastry chef Sandi Sumaylo to create an official commemorative cookie commissioned by Fort Mason Center for the Golden Gate Bridge's 75th anniversary.

Burning bridges is always a bad idea, but eating them is good. Cook E. Monster devoured almost two entire bridges that they built out of Madagascar vanilla-enhanced butter shortbread and orange Royal icing -- and we could have happily devoured more. Royal iced cookies can be heavy handed, but the refined touch here is clear and appreciated in both the visual detail and the taste.

This isn't shortbread that's going to break a tooth and crumble all over your clothes. It's a light bite and you'll actually get to enjoy it all.

The cookie ($3.75) is available now through May 27 at Greens to Go, the restaurant's takeout counter up front. It will be featured at Greens that night at the restaurant's special dinner honoring the anniversary.

  • 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.'"
