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

San Francisco restaurant scene.


Inside Scoop's Paolo L. learns that a pair of Shanghai 1930 staffers are planning to open Pudong (2029 Market) in the former Mecca space. The pitch: Shanghainese food with French accents.

Humin at Tenderblog snaps a shot of the dueling signboards outside Wrap Delight (426 Larkin), a Vietnamese banh mi shop now selling tacos and burritos as well. Is this, you ask, the first Mexican-Vietnamese restaurant in San Francisco? No, it is not.

Inside Scoop

also has some good news for anyone not living in Santa Cruz -- Charlie

Parker, a Manresa alumnus recently profiled in the NYT for his food at

Bonny Doon's Cellar Door, is going to become the chef at Plum, Daniel Patterson's Oakland restaurant.

Eater's Carolyn A. reports that the large outdoor patio at Bar Agricole is finally open.

Eater also reminds us that Jones and 25 Lusk both opened this weekend, not to mention the 24th Street Chilli Cha Cha.

  • Arcade Fire at Shoreline
    Arcade Fire opened their US tour at Shoreline Amphitheater to a full house who was there in support of their album "Reflector," which was released last fall. Dan Deacon opened the show to a happily surprised early audience and got the crowd actively dancing and warmed up. DEVO was originally on the bill to support Arcade Fire but a kayak accident last week had sidelined lead singer Mark Mothersbaugh and the duration of the west coast leg of the tour. Win Butler did a homage to DEVO by performing Uncontrollable Urge.
  • Comic Con 2014

    Comic book enthusiasts, Cosplayers, TV and movie fans, and celebrities descended to sunny San Diego for the annual gathering at Comic-Con International.

    Whether hitting up a panel to check out The Simpson's announcement of a cross over with Family Guy or Futurama. Or hearing a new movie with Sam Raimie based on a video game or accidentally rubbing shoulders with Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) in cosplay, being a cosplayer, San Diego Comic-Con is the place to be.
