A fire broke out this morning, ruining a popular upscale Mission District restaurant and forcing residents living above to flee.

According to press reports, the fire started at about 8:15 a.m. in the kitchen at Maverick, located at 3316 17th Street, between Mission and Hoff streets. The blaze was under control within 30 minutes, and fortunately, nobody was hurt.

According to the Chron, the fire started in an oven inside the restaurant, but how the fire started is not yet clear. Michael Pierce, who owns the restaurant, arrived as firefighters were putting out the blaze.

"We're definitely going to be closed for quite a while," Pierce told the Chron.

In other words, consider your reservations canceled.

  • 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.'"
