There are nights when you aren't looking for the hippest, most see-and-be-seen restaurant in town. The dining room in West Portal's Orexi is classy and comfortable, the Greke food is familiar and dependable, and the waitstaff treats you with the kind of respectful deference that you don't find very often in the Mission. Most of the menu is made up of shareable small plates, like house-made pita, fluffy and still warm from the oven, paired with house-made dips, or the lamb riblets, with meat so tender it falls off the bone when you look at it, and a flavor with a whisper of gaminess from the lamb and char from the fire. The Moussaka has a fantastically custardy topping, over slices of stewed eggplant and ground lamb cooked with just enough cinnamon and allspice. Orexi's signature entrée is rotisserie chicken, a meaty half-bird with a crispy skin, seasoned with oregano and spices. The only concession to the space's former life as a Round Table is the two pizzas on the menu -- one with Greek sausage, the other vegetarian with an oregano-pesto base.

  • 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.'"
