    Sum Kind of Wonderful - Dim Sum venues in Chinatown

    So the Year of the Serpent is upon us. As years go, 4699's looking a little shaky, but it has potential. Consider this year's metaphorical astrological icon, the serpent: Its zodiacal protgs are irresistible, undeniably charming, whimsically overse...

    The Mix - Night Tripping

    The Lower Haight is a come-as-you-are kind of neighborhood, a place where locals play dominoes on foldout tables as young bohemians in faux fur coats or incredibly spacious pants roam the streets in search of adventure. It's a neighborhood of sidewal...

    Burning Dimly - Glow

    Glow is the kind of restaurant that makes me think back to last summer, when out of 20 places I reviewed, 16 were new, often barely more than a month old. Obviously, the year 2000 was a bit of a boom time here in the Bay Area, and most of those new p...

    2001: A Food Odyssey - Bacar

    Bacar isn't just a restaurant; it's an extravaganza, an eagerly awaited, two-years-in-the-making culinary spectacular with a big budget, an all-star cast, mezzanine seating, and multiple subplots. Like some unholy gustatory alliance of Kubrick and D...

    The Mix - Symbiosis

    The ritual begins slowly at 111 Minna Street Gallery. At 10:15 p.m., as a DJ eases into the first set of the night, the crowd numbers 50 -- or make that 100, and growing. People are young and often pretty and certainly looking fine in go-go boots or ...

    Dinner and a Show - Boys Toys

    I can't say I've ever reviewed a restaurant that brought up as many fascinating issues as Boys Toys. For example, the ambiguous name. The first time I saw an ad for the place I thought, "Boy Toys, a gay men's or straight women's strip club?" Of cours...
