Restaurant Details

The genre of Japanese pub cooking known as izakaya assumes diners will be at least partially inebriated, and Nombe - the name means "drunk guy" - serves up a selection of small plates with big, earthy flavors that should pierce the fog of even the most rollicking night out. Gil Payne and Mari Takahashi introduces a touch of contemporary Cali lightness in yakimono (grilled dishes) and agemono (fried dishes). The kitchen's execution doesn't always do the food justice, but Payne's sprawling sake list provides a measure of solace.

  • Phish at the Bill Graham Auditorium
    Phish is in the midst of a block of sold out shows at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium (October 27-29). The Monday night concert featured a rare first set opener of “Walfredo” with the band members switching instruments for the song. The evening’s highlights included John Fishman and his iconic vacuum cleaner solo and favorites such as Chalk Dust Torture, Slave to the Traffic Light, Axilla, Rift, 2001 Space Odyssey, and Maze. The show also featured Phish’s debut of a, seemingly impromptu, version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” to with roaring approval of the, singing along, crowd. With Game 6 being tonight, partying Phish fans will join Giants fans in Civic Center Plaza where there will be a World Series viewing party on a large screen set up by the City.
