Greetings film snots ... In light of all the ass kissing that’s about to rain down on S.F. once 7x7’s Best Of season kicks off, let me be the first to offer a preemptive pucker. Who do you know that's an authority on San Francisco history? I mean the small stuff, people you never heard of in the gay old bohemian days of gay old San Francisco? Juicy stories, like who shot who in the Embarcadero, August, 1879 …*
The dynamic trio behind Salt House and Town Hall (Doug Washington and Mitchell and Steve Rosenthal) are at it again. Their latest venture, Anchor & Hope, is an oyster and fish house with a San Francisco sensibility—it’s opening April 21 (83 Minna St., 415-501-9100). Here, Doug Washington (the front-of-the-house man) dishes on the new spot.
How did you come up with the name?
Anchor and Hope is the name of an old tavern in London that we absolutely love.
Did you try to evoke that pub in any other way?
