Game: Game meats are, unsurprisingly, the focus of this new Chinatown restaurant, which stocks its menu with goat, elk, rabbit, venison, and line-caught seafood. There's a short bar bites menu, but this is fine dining; entrees are in the $30-$40 range. 648 Bush, 874-9481, gameinsf.com.

Huxley: Brett Cooper was the consulting chef on this new, small farm-to-table bistro in the Tenderloin, helmed by alums of Bar Agricole, Saison, and Sons & Daughters. The décor is vintage schoolhouse, and the wine list is mostly focused on Burgundy, France. 846 Geary, 800-8223, huxleysf.com.

Liquid Gold: There sure are a lot of great local microbrews and boutique wineries. Luckily there's one more place to sample their goods at this new Nob Hill bar and bottle shop, which has 30 beers on tap and many more in the fridge. 1040 Hyde, 660-5142, liquidgoldsf.com.

Rintaro: The new 60-seat izakaya at 14th and Folsom comes from Sylvan Mishima Brackett, formerly of Peko Peko and Chez Panisse. He spent a while in Japan doing research for the restaurant so expect a Tokyo-style menu replete with skewers and other small plates. 82 14th St., 589-7022, izakayarintaro.com.

Tap(415): Westfield Mall's new gastropub "Under the Dome" comes from the 25 Lusk guys, which means its menu is refined comfort food — think prawn corn dogs and pastrami tater tots. Along with a long tap list, the drinks menu also features boozy milkshakes and a bacon-infused Old Fashioned. 845 Market, tap415.com.

  • 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.'"
