The latest gossip, innuendo, and cold hard facts about the San Francisco food scene.
What would the city be without Tosca Cafe? Inside Scoop reports the famous S.F. institution's rent has been increased by its strip-club-owning landlord, and that they can't afford the new rate. It looks as though this may only be the first chapter of this story.

Chowhounders have discovered Y&Y Vietnamese Restaurant (sister restaurant to Yummy Yummy) has opened in the inner Richmond. Expect an expanded dessert and drink menu. They also discover another recent opener down the street, Sweethut, is serving all the tapioca tea favorites..
And Inside Scoop says the De La Paz's coffee cart is back to brewing outside its pending cafe space in SOMA, that is still about five months out from opening.
