Alibi, De La SouL, Machine Coffee & Deli Open; Caesars Readies to Shut

Posted By on Mon, Aug 6, 2012 at 2:36 PM


The latest gossip, innuendo, and cold hard facts about the San Francisco food scene.

Ever wanted to sell goodies at 331 Cortland? Now's the time. Bernalwood reports there's a space open. Better move quick!

SOMA was the epicenter of openers over the weekend: LiveSOMA discovers Alibi Restaurant and Lounge, from the owners of the former Beale Street Bar and Grill, had their grand opening party. Expect American cuisine like mac n' cheese, grits, and pot roast. Also, they note De La SouL 7th Street Bistro (yep, big L), is now serving chicken and waffles, and other soul food dishes.

The team behind SOMA's Machine Coffee & Deli let us know their grand opening is this Thursday. They roast and smoke their meats in house and have hand-cast coffee.

And Tablehopper reminds us SOMA is home to the latest Super Duper, which marks it's fourth location in the City.

Over in a different neighborhood: We missed Uppercasing's post from last week about the latest El Faro opening in the Haight. So you can now grab a burrito where you use to grab a burrito (when it was El Balazo).

Closing report: After 50 years, Inside Scoop reports Caesars Italian Restaurant is closing. Other than a note referring to the unpleasantness of shutting it down, no other reason for the family style restaurant closure is known. The doors close Aug. 31.

NoeValleySF shares Tao Cafe has shuttered, and a sign in the window promises a new venture this month - but what? That remains to be discovered.

  • 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.'"
