San Francisco restaurant scene.
The week begins with a murmur … Carolyn A. at Eater SF catches on to a Tablehopper hint that a Michelin-starred chef will be opening a place at 3127 Fillmore, which was last occupied by PlumpJack. She follows up with the L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon folks, who respond with the weakest dismissal of all time. This morning, though, Inside Scoop's Paolo L. offers up the real story. Get ready for Atelier Crenn, planned as a chic, PlumpJack Group showcase for current Luce chef Dominique Crenn. The pitch: modern French, with Danko-like tasting options. Expected open is Dec. 1; Crenn will stay on at Luce for now.
