Chez Panisse Damage Worse Than Originally Thought

Posted By on Tue, Mar 19, 2013 at 3:05 PM

Sad news from Chez Panisse: After the front porch fire on March 8, a shaken Alice Waters thought the restaurant might be able to open in a matter of weeks, but over the weekend construction crews revealed much worse damage than originally thought, reports Inside Scoop. Instead of just a facelift of the porch, it turns out that the porches will need to be demolished and structural repairs necessary upstairs and downstairs.

Now it's going to be closed for the foreseeable future; the original April 15 estimation will definitely be pushed back. On Facebook, the team posted that they are personally calling people with reservations and they will provide updates as soon as they are able.

  • 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.'"
