Aliment: Taking its name from an ancient word for nourishment, this new restaurant serves upper-crust comfort food including hanger steak, fried chicken with charred escarole slaw, and fried Brussels sprouts with fish sauce. 786 Bush.

The Beer Hall: This mid-Market bar and bottle shop is certainly poised to get traffic from the nearby Twitter headquarters. 20 California beers tap, a few wines, and a cool-looking wall plastered in bottle caps. 1 Polk, 800-7416.

The Cavalier: Now open in the Hotel Zetta, this 115-seat, upscale restaurant and lounge offers British-themed menu items including steak and oyster pie, Sunday roast chicken, and egg and soldiers.

  • 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.'"
