It's Friday, which means time for the Eater Wrap, the weekly recap from Eater SF on all the happenings from the local restaurant scene. Feel free to grab some popcorn. Or candy canes. 'Tis the season, after all.
1) The big news today comes from Jackson Street's Zinnia, which will be closing at the end of the year. The sad closure is being chalked up to the unforgiving economy, which not even chef/owner Sean O'Brien could overcome in the former Scott Howard space.
Today would be Friday the 13th, meaning it's time for the end-of-the-week wrap from Eater SF. Click through for all kinds of fun and rewarding reading about a variety of topics like Original Joe's legal fight, the demise of Acme, Alice Waters' new dreams and a little place called SPQR.
1) One month (or so) into the new SPQR, chef Matthew Accarrino reflects on his first few weeks, the San Francisco dining scene, his predecessor, Mr. Michael Bauer's visit and so much more.
