The Outerlands: The Excelsior

Rather than leave their ’hood, one family tore down their dilapidated childhood home to resurrect it as a modern, urban dwelling.

 

We Hardly Knew Ye: Broken Record Closed!

I am so, so sad to hear that the Broken Record, which had quickly become one of my most favorite spots, is calling it quits tonight. I don't have all the details about the sudden closure (although something on their Twitter feed hints at a BBQ reconnaisance mission, which could mean good news for us further down the road) but I do know that you have one more night—tonight—to get in while the getting is good.

Pulled Pork and Frito Pie—Hello, Broken Record

There are few things that I like more than finding great food in unexpected locations. That's why I'm a shameless promoter of street food, of fluorescent-lit strip mall restaurants serving great Sichuan food, of granny carts piled high with tamales. So I just had a feeling when I first heard about Broken Record that I would be into it. Great food, inexpensive, served from the back of a bar on Geneva Ave. in Excelsior? Yes, please. Now my only regret is that it took me so to make it out there.

The Broken Record: A Bar We All Need to Know About

I don't ever like to admit that I may have come late to the party on something, but in this case I'm afraid I must: Does everyone know about the Broken Record Bar & Grill? I stumbled upon a mention of it today when I was reading Meredith Brody's review of Mission Street Food (Question: can you review a restaurant that has a different chef and menu every week?) and then did a little research. How can I not know about a place that serves whisky (114 varieties) and sausages of all kinds, which can be turned into a corn dog for only $1 more? How have I remained naïve about a spot that makes french fries showered with real parmesan cheese and fresh garlic?
