Coppola Winery to Serve Francis's Faves, Ken Ken Ramen to Feed S.F.'s Current Obsession

we were there

​The past 72 hours in gossip, innuendo, and cold hard facts about the

San Francisco restaurant scene.

Carolyn A. of Eater shares some good news. Francis Ford Coppola's new winery in Geyserville is opening July 30, and along with it, the winery restaurant, named Rustic, Francis's Favorites (300 Via Archimedes, Guyserville; 707-857-1400), which SFoodie would prefer to spell with a colon instead of a comma. The pitch: indoor-outdoor restaurant with an Argentinian parrilla, Brazilian rotisserie, oven for Neapolitan pizzas, and on-site garden. The chef will be Nick Petrilli, a Tra Vigne vet, and none of Coppola's favorite dishes are named after Godfather characters. Side note: In the process of looking for more information on Rustic Francis, SFoodie discovered that Black Francis has a Twitter feed.

Carolyn A. also gets the dish on Ken Ken Ramen, a Monday-night pop-up noodlerie showing up at Panchita No. 3 (3115 22nd St., at Mission):
