The past 24 hours in gossip, innuendo, and cold hard facts about the
San Francisco restaurant scene.
This is a dark week for bakeries. First Patisserie Delanghe
closes, and now Paolo L. of Inside Scoop
brings word that the 134-year-old Boniere Bakery
in Alameda closed after the landlord jacked up the rent. Go support your local 100-year-old bakery. Buy a pastry from Victoria Bakery
in North Beach, say, or go hug the owners of Galli's Sanitary Bakery
in South San Francisco and beg them to stick around.
Scoop also reports
But there's a bright spot. After an interminable wait, Eater SF's Carolyn A.
reports that a sign has appeared on the windows of the Mission branch of Arizmendi
(1268 Valencia). It reads "See you next week."
that a place called Macellato the Sandwich
(59 Columbus) has opened in the old Caffe Macaroni space. The pitch: Fried-chicken sandwich with Fulton Valley Farms meat. Do you need to know more?
One opening from last night, much reported on: Plum
1268 Valencia, San Francisco, CA
