Restaurant Details

The genre of Japanese pub cooking known as izakaya assumes diners will be at least partially inebriated, and Nombe - the name means "drunk guy" - serves up a selection of small plates with big, earthy flavors that should pierce the fog of even the most rollicking night out. Gil Payne and Mari Takahashi introduces a touch of contemporary Cali lightness in yakimono (grilled dishes) and agemono (fried dishes). The kitchen's execution doesn't always do the food justice, but Payne's sprawling sake list provides a measure of solace.

  • 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.'"
