Restaurant Details

At Hibiscus, Sarah Kirnon incorporates traditional Caribeean dishes and flavors with the timeliest of Bay Area ingredients - ox tongue for the explorers, say, and "farm eggs" for the urban homesteaders. Made with Kirnon's penchant for clear flavors and farmers market ingredients, her crab and grits recalls Zuni's polenta as much as it does a Bahamian breakfast. Her strongest dishes are the ones with the most vivid flavors: nubbly split-pea fritters called pholourie; salt fish and ackee with ripe plantains; an aromatic, sweet pepperpot with oxtail and beef cheeks. And Miss Ollie's fried chicken is a dish with its own gravity, so extraordinary that your gaze will orbit its listing on the menu, pretending to consider other dishes, up until the moment the waiter comes to the table.

  • 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.'"
