Restaurant Details

Tech millionaire Jonathan Kaplan enlisted celeb chef Michael Mina to consult with him on his fast-food empire, which may be conquering the country as you read this. Melt's premise: comfort food -- grilled cheeses and soups -- for smart-phone owners. The sandwiches, produced in a machine that griddles the bread and microwaves the cheese at the same time, are functional, though not as gooey and crunchy as the grilled cheese you've been making for yourself since age 7. More interesting are the soups, such as a creamy wild mushroom and a bright, basil-tinged tomato, with fresh, balanced flavors. And you can order and pay online, then scan your phone when you arrive at the restaurant, when your order will get zapped to the cooks. Very 21st century.

  • 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.'"
