Leopold's Brings Austro-Italian Food to S.F., One More Steakhouse Joins the Fray

Categories: Buzz Machine
​The past 24 hours in gossip, innuendo, and cold hard facts about the San Francisco restaurant scene.

Both Inside Scoop and Grub Street hail the opening of Leopold's (2400 Polk, 474-2000), which started serving dinner this weekend. The pitch: Austro-Italian food ― pappardelle with braised short ribs, Wiener schnitzel, pan-fried trout wrapped in pancetta. 

Thanks to Eater/Hotel Interactive, we learn that Seasons Restaurant, at the Four Seasons Hotel (757 Market), has become a steakhouse. The pitch: steaks from California ranches like Harris and Prather. Given the recent opening of Bourbon Steak and Alexander's Steakhouse, are there enough San Franciscans out there interested in Wagyu filets and USDA Prime porterhouses?

On the farther-out-there front:
  • The opening of Locanda, the Delfina owners' Roman-style restaurant on Valencia and 16th St., is being pushed back to March (via Eater SF).
  • Tanya Holland is going to open a second Brown Sugar Kitchen at 5800 Third Street in San Francisco; she's hoping for a late spring opening (via Inside Scoop). Given San Francisco permitting delays ... think early fall.

If you have said that this restaurant is that good, then I should at least give it a try. I love to eat and try different cuisines because it is a good chance to explore the world of food.
