The past 24 hours in gossip, innuendo, and cold hard facts about the
San Francisco restaurant scene.
From Thrillist, SFoodie has learned of a new pop-up Creole restaurant in El Rincon named Marcel's Kitchen (2700 16th St., at Harrison, 244-8881). The pitch: Marcel Neal, a Gary Danko alumnus, is taking his Marcels on Wheels truck/catering business indoors, doing affordable, soigné Southern food. Thrillist has also posted a menu.

adds details to last week's widely reported news that when Michael Mina moves MICHAEL MINA to the old Aqua space (252 California), he's replacing the Westin St. Francis restaurant space with a branch of his BOURBON STEAK
(other locations: Detroit, DC, and Scottsdale, Ariz.). You have approximately six weeks to visit MICHAEL MINA before it moves. (Struck by an attack of insecurity, SFOODIE is trying on some extra capitals and looking at ourselves in the mirror. Nope, we're going back to two.)
