There aren't many lunch options around the SF Weekly offices, and so we're excited to announce that Parlor 1255 in Levi Plaza (1255 Battery) has started serving lunch as of today. The "creamery and eatery" has an ambitious list of sandwiches and salads along with smoothies and fresh ice cream and fro yo. After perusing the sandwich options, including a seared tuna nicoise ($11), a lobster roll ($12), and a Parmesan-crusted Gouda grilled cheese with poached figs ($8), and a chicken banh mi ($8.50) we settled on the pork belly with cucumber kimchi and 4505 chicharones ($8.5).

The sandwich was on a fresh Acme loaf and contained two generous hunks of fatty pork belly along with the kimchi and a tangy, mayo-based sauce. It was super-satisfying, if a bit heavy (then again, what did we expect?). Its spice was nicely tempered by the fat-free pumpkin yogurt we got on the side, which was so creamy we didn't miss the fat and tasted faintly of real pumpkin along with the requisite autumnal spices.

We're also excited about the menu of smoothies and breakfast sandwiches, including one featuring homemade bacon. Plus there's Sightglass coffee. With its commitment to local ingredients, seasonal menu options, and "deliciousness," according to the menu, we'll be back for many more lunches and mid-morning breaks.

The tiny sandwichery is little more than a storefront with no seating inside, but right out the door there's a fairly adorable area set aside for sandwich-and-fro-yo eating. Or you can head into the sun of Levi Plaza.

  • 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.'"
