Wednesday, Mar 12 2014

The Coachman: Local celeb chef Charles Phan (The Slanted Door, Hard Water, Vietnamese Home Cooking) surprises everyone by trying his hand at British food. Menu options include fried smelt, bone marrow with snails, prime rib with Yorkshire pudding, and skate wing with brown butter and capers. 1148 Mission, 831-1701,

Horner's Corner: Noe Valley's latest bistro (in the space formerly known as Noe's Bar) has a New American menu that prominently features pizzas from its brick oven. It's also offering brunch right out of the gate, and its activity-filled kids menu illustrates the place's family-friendly vibe. 1199 Church, 282-4007,

ICHI Sushi + Ni Bar: The beloved Bernal Heights sushi bar's long-anticipated expansion has finally arrived. Up front is a 30-seat sushi bar, in back is an izakaya with hot food and a number of sakes. 3282 Mission, 525-4750,

Humphry Slocombe: The ice creamery's new outpost in the Ferry Building across from Blue Bottle means that tourists don't have to brave the wilds of the Mission for inventive flavors. Don't miss Secret Breakfast (it involves corn flakes, bourbon, and a lot of deliciousness). 1 Ferry Building, 550-6971,

Kin Khao: Union Square's new Thai restaurant has a menu that goes way beyond pad Thai. The menu, from Bangkok-born food writer and chef Pim Techamuanvivit, covers lesser-known specialties like sour curry and rice noodles with Dungeness crab. Cocktails come from the Bon Vivants (Trick Dog). 55 Cyril Magnin, 362-7456,

Lobsta Truck: L.A.'s popular food truck has come north, proffering buttery (or mayonnaise-y, depending on your preference) lobster and Dungeness crab rolls on bread imported from back East. It doesn't have the smallest carbon footprint, but that hardly matters to Maine expats and other lobster roll fanatics.

The Square: This upscale/casual Washington Square bistro is from the folks behind Sons & Daughters/Sweet Woodruff. Expect refined pub grub items like beef tartare, pastrami-spiced rillettes on caraway toast, fried quail with mustard and sunchokes, along with a regular old cheeseburger. 1707 Powell, 525-3579,

  • 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.'"
