The past 24 hours in gossip, innuendo, and cold hard facts about the San Francisco food scene.
Tablehopper reports that Brick and Mortar Music Hall, (1710 Mission at Duboce) which opened in the former Coda space in late March, is starting to focus on food. Co-owner Michael O'Connor says he's hiring one of his favorite chefs for the casual, Austin-inspired menu, but no, it won't be another BBQ place. Until O'Connor nails down the kitchen, Mission neighbor caterers Crimson Kitchen plans to serve something called “Bombay bar food,” starting Friday.
Another opening from Tablehopper: Devil's Teeth Baking Company (3876 Noriega at 46th Ave.). The shop, which takes its moniker from the nickname for the Farallons, serves breakfast sandwiches, lunch quiches, and an assortment of morning pastries. Also: beignet Sundays.
Also from Tablehopper, the Ox Cafe has opened, while the Ace Cafe has closed. The Ox (798 South Van Ness at 19th St.) is a tiny Mexican cafe serving a few hot dishes and spicy coffee drinks. Ace officially closed April 29, but tweeted that they hope to reopen in a new location.
