While SFoodie is still digesting the tremendous loss of Michael Jackson, we are heartened by the tributes that have been popping up on menus around town.

On Friday morning, Little Skillet (330 Ritch at Townsend) rolled out the "Billy Jean" [sic]: Grits with bacon, pecans, and brown sugar. By the afternoon, customers at Humphry Slocombe (2790 Harrison at 24th St.) were getting all spiritual with a "Jesus Juice" sorbet made with Kermit Lynch Cotes du Rhone and Coke Classic (what, no Pepsi?). And a weekend special at Kate's Kitchen (471 Haight at Fillmore) was called the "R.I.P. Michael Jackson Omelet," filled with bacon, tomato, red onion, avocado, roasted Anaheim chili, and "Jacko" cheese.

Seen any local MJ menu items you'd like to add? Please leave 'em in the comments section.

  • Permanent Residents

    San Francisco is not just skin deep to these folks — it's a permanent resident of their bodies and souls. They may be scattered far and wide — everywhere from Bernal Heights to Brooklyn, El Paso, Tokyo, and beyond — but the one thing these self-defined San Franciscans all share is a deep commitment to the city by the Bay.
