Eat Real isn't the only thing rolling out in Jack London this weekend. MarketBar chef Rick Hackett's much-anticipated pan-American resto Bocanova holds its soft opening tonight for friends and family, mere feet from Eat Real's stage. What's on for tonght's select few? Burnt carrot and arugula salad, Dungeness deviled eggs, scallops in Brazilian curry sauce, mini burgers.

The kitchen will be open tomorrow and Sunday, whipping out a very limited menu of snacks and small bites for diners on the patio. And then, assistant manager Stella Davies told SFoodie, after catching its breath Monday, Bocanova opens for real Tuesday, September 1, starting at 11 a.m.

The dining room is chunky and brooding, handsomely Arts and Crafts, all dark woods, colored glass panels, and brightly patterned rugs. The new flagship of Miette Patisserie next door is likewise said to be opening soon.

More Bocanova pics after the jump.

  • U2 @ SAP Center in San Jose
    Last night U2 performed the first U.S. date of it’s Innocence + Experience tour at SAP Center in San Jose. All four band members were present despite recent injuries sustained by both Bono and Edge. The sold out show took audience members on a walk down memory lane as the band revisited their roots. The innovative stage and lighting used gave the arena show an intimate feel, and engaged audience members in all sections of the venue. Photographs by Sugarwolf.
  • Bay to Breakers 2015 - NSFW
    The 103rd annual Bay to Breakers 12K race was packed on Sunday despite the cold weather. With a starting point a few blocks from The Embarcadero, people dressed as bananas, Elvis and everything in between ran west through the city and finished at the Great Highway where breakers crash onto Ocean Beach.
