​The past 24 hours in gossip, innuendo, and cold hard facts about the

San Francisco restaurant scene.

This is a dark week for bakeries. First Patisserie Delanghe closes, and now Paolo L. of Inside Scoop brings word that the 134-year-old Boniere Bakery in Alameda closed after the landlord jacked up the rent. Go support your local 100-year-old bakery. Buy a pastry from Victoria Bakery in North Beach, say, or go hug the owners of Galli's Sanitary Bakery in South San Francisco and beg them to stick around. 

But there's a bright spot. After an interminable wait, Eater SF's Carolyn A. reports that a sign has appeared on the windows of the Mission branch of Arizmendi (1268 Valencia). It reads "See you next week." 

Scoop also reports that a place called Macellato the Sandwich (59 Columbus) has opened in the old Caffe Macaroni space. The pitch: Fried-chicken sandwich with Fulton Valley Farms meat. Do you need to know more?

One opening from last night, much reported on: Plum in Oakland.

  • 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.
