The past 24 hours in gossip, innuendo, and cold hard facts about the San Francisco food scene.
Chef pop-up: We've been following where Evan and Sarah Rich have appeared around the city, and now Inside Scoop shares their Rebel pop-up menu: fried chicken. If not a fan of the fried, than this may be one to skip; however, if a lover of all things fried, be there Sun.-Mon. 5-10 p.m. (first come, first serve).
Pending report: Eater SF shares that the Fresh & Easy slated for the Mission (1245 Van Ness at Sutter) is officially on its way, the latest Pearl's Deluxe Burgers (1001 Market at Sixth St.) is almost ready to start flipping patties, the Coffee Bar slated for 101 Montgomery (at Bush) is coming along, and 18 Reasons' larger space should be open by next Friday (3674 18th St. at Dolores).
Music to our ears: Inside Scoop shares that S.F. supervisors unanimously approved a new type of performance permit for music in cafes and small restaurants. For $385 the permit allows performances within a 200-sq-foot area that don't go past 10 p.m. We wonder what restaurant will be the first to implement the permit.
Food Truck News: Matt Cohen's Off the Grid will be rolling north to Marin County this Fall. The Feast shares that he's planning on crossing the Golden Gate come October.
