Michael Mina Brings Detroit-Class Dining to S.F., Norton's Vault Slams Shut

​The past 24 hours in gossip, innuendo, and cold hard facts about the

San Francisco restaurant scene.

Inside Scoop's Paolo L. drops the news (seconded and thirded by Eater's Carolyn A. and Grub Street's Jay B.) that there's about to be a spike in LDL levels in San Francisco, after a heavy player launches a steak house in an iconic location. Michael Mina™ will forge a fifth link in the Bourbon Steak chain (others are in Arizona, D.C., Miami, and Detroit ― Detroit?) in his soon to be ex-eponymous eatery at the Westin St. Francis. Mark your calendars for October.

Paolo L. also sheds a tear for a deuce of closures: Norton's Vault (500 Sacramento) and SNOB Wine Bar (1327 Polk). Then again, notes PL, SNOB has already been replaced by the beer-forward Pour House. So dry your tears.
