  1. This article claims that Yelp has offered to remove negative restaurant reviews for $299 a month. I really want to make some sort of joke here about running a $249 special on donrockwell.com, but instead I'll just shake my head in disbelief over the accusations. Cheers, Rocks.
  2. Heading to San Francisco next weekend for a friend's b-day. Dinners are already set at the Cortez [Purchased by Ron Silberstein in 2008, Closed Aug 10, 2009], at the Hotel Adagio and at Lemongrass. Can anyone recommend anything I need to order at these places? I'll also have Sunday evening to myself so is there a not miss restaurant open on Sunday night for someone who just plans on ordering at the bar?
  3. Pop-Up Magazine is rolling back to the Warner Theater with its Fall Issue on September 25, 2018. If you have never heard of this or seen it before you can read more about it here: "Pop-Up Magazine Productions Brings You Original, True Stories, for Your Nights and Weekends" on popupmagazine.com I have been twice before and each time there were some memorable performances. There are plenty of tickets available at the moment, but if history is any guide the orchestra will mostly fill in (and much of the balcony as well) by the date of the performance. Expect the unexpected and rememb
  4. *** SPOILERS FOLLOW *** Sometime in the late 1960s, we were visiting my Aunt Kitty and Uncle Ben in Detroit, and were out for a walk. We walked past a park, and Uncle Ben (who knew I was a baseball savant) asked me to guess who the park was named after - I immediately said "Ty Cobb,: and he (in his 70s at the time) said, "No, no, no! Ty Cobb wasn't loved here in Detroit - this park is named for Harry Heilmann!" (With his accent, I thought he had said "Harry Hahmann," and I never got the name right for the next twenty years). Uncle Ben had lived in Detroit for decades, and remembered
  5. San Francisco is so expensive servers are priced out of the housing market: Hence full service restaurants and no wait staff. "San Francisco Restaurants Can't Afford Waiters. So They're Putting Diners To Work" by Emily Badget on mobile.nytimes.com
  6. I only just learned of this exhibit via an article in today's Washington Post. I recall the day and the TV coverage of the slow mournful movement of this train carry the slain Robert Kennedy from a service in NYC to Washington DC where he was laid to rest in Arlington Cemetery next to his brother. It was painfully breathtaking. Millions lined the train tracks from NY to DC all along the route, in every state and small hamlet. The scenes were haunting. It was a spontaneous response from people of all walks of life. The exhibit is running currently and through June 10 at San Francisc
  7. I moved to San Francisco in August 2015 and let me tell you that the variety and extended growing season in California is miles away from what I was used to in New York. It's been kind of an adventure. Cherry tomatoes are still available although I expect them to be gone soon. Each cantaloupe is the size of your hand. These are small heirloom apples called Wickson apples. They're about double the size of a golf ball, have a tart-sweet flavor and are great for eating out of hand. This weekend we bought: whole chicken, herbs (basil, mint), salad gre

    Four Barrel

    That's one way for a company to take ownership of the problem. Too bad it apparently took so long. Tales of despicable behavior follow. Four Barrel Coffee founder Jeremy Tooker accused of sexual assault and harassment, by Justin Phillips, January 5, 2018, on sfchronicle.com. Four Barrel Responds to Sexual Harassment Lawsuit as Founder Jeremy Tooker Divests, by Nick Brown, January 8, 2018, on dailycoffeenews.com.
  9. [This nascent stub will eventually resemble a Dining Guide. The date of this Dining Guide doesn't refer to when it was last edited; it's being updated continually. Within San Francisco, the list of neighborhoods begins at the Golden Gate Bridge, heading towards the Bay Bridge, then snaking back-and-forth, east-west-east-west-etc. in a general north-to-south flow.

  10. I'll be making a brief trip to San Francisco, and will be happy to review a restaurant or two out in that general vicinity (North Bay area is fine, too). Please feel free to submit requests for reviews, and I'd like to add that I really don't want to go insane on this visit (French Laundry, Meadowood, Saison, Atelier Crenn, Coi, Manresa, Keiko, etc.) - I'll do it if they're voted in, but I'll probably only do one instead of two, and I'd really like to get two under my belt. Note that I've already done quite a few (see the San Francisco thread in The Intrepid Traveler). I'd like to get the
  11. Location and Rates - Website with Best-Rate Guarantee I could legitimately say Hotel Abri was in the Tenderloin, but it's just as legitimate to say it's in Union Square, since it's towards the east. Nevertheless, that slight "pull" towards the Tenderloin - parts of which can be somewhat annoying at night (I've encountered some aggressive panhandlers a few blocks to the west) - can lead to room rates that border on being astounding given the level of quality this boutique hotel possesses. On a Friday night in early January, a standard King was $103.20, and the next night it was $127.20 (th
  12. I'm reopening the San Francisco poll for additional nominations, as I will be spending some more time there during the upcoming months. Additional nominations will be taken until next Thursday, Dec, 22, at 3 PM, after which a week-long polling process will occur. I will have written up the two restaurants where I dined before that poll begins (obviously, one of those is the one that won the previous poll, and it took nearly five hours out of my day to frequent), so those two will not be included. I will probably be going to one hyper-expensive restaurant during my visit (hint: I've never
  13. I looked up this Instagram account. Several people have asked the poster who it is or where the art is located, but he or she has not answered. It reminded me of these two works by Claes Oldenburg (Sweden) and Coosje van Bruggen (The Netherlands) - pictured below - that I saw Friday at the SFMOMA. The one in the background is a necktie around an inverted collar. At first glance I thought it was a stick of chewing gum! The SFMOMA is an amazing museum - I loved my day there. The most interesting thing was a Bruce Conner exhibit: "Bruce Conner: It's All True." This artist was incr
  14. Man, this rings more true than most people would care to admit. That said, this is my favorite comment about the article: "I kept hoping this article would somehow become interesting. It didn't." There's a painful amount of truth in this article, but the commenter is right - it just never got interesting. It started out *so well* - with the comment about squinting to make the hills seem like Provence - but then quickly petered out after the point was made.
  15. Probably a subjective judgment. Maybe "the worst waiter in the United States" is more apt. I guess if my given name was Edsel Ford, I'd have a chip on my shoulder too... "Past steaming woks and chopping blocks and up a narrow, creaky staircase, Edsel Ford Fong -- the world's most insulting waiter -- greeted patrons with a “sit down and shut up!” Routinely, he cussed out his customers, sexually accosted female companions, and unapologetically spilled soup across laps. According to one diner, he was so malicious that he “made the Soup Nazi look like the Dalai Lama.” ' May 26, 2014 - "
  16. The Asian Art Museum of San Francisco is one of the world's most comprehensive collections of Asian art. Their collection holds more than 18,000 pieces and the museum exhibits approximately 2,500 pieces. When we visited they were in between major exhibitions, but the permanent collection is well worth your time. We spent about 3 hours there and could have easily spent a couple more. If you are a fan of the Sackler/Freer museums in DC, you will love the Asian Art Museum.
  17. Next Friday I'm flying out west for a dear friends wedding which happens to be in Carmel, CA. At this point, my plan is to fly into SFO on Friday morning, make the drive down the Pacific Coast Highway, spend the weekend in Carmel then head back to SF early Sunday morning. My question is: Are there any great spots to drink some California brews that I can't get here on the East Coast or are there any must stop restaurants / eateries that I should be checking out as I make the drive? I have more flexibility on Sunday b/c we're staying the night so I can go farther afield on my way from Carmel
  18. Often, I silently lurk this community blog (I split this off from the Dinner thread), shaking my head in awe at all the talent we have here. Please do expand on this "time-consuming" method for making cioppino. I know there are many short-cuts taken, but I'm not sure of the baseline, and I suspect others might be interested in hearing and learning as well. I'll give you a start: "Cioppino is a San-Francisco-based, Italian-American seafood stew "¦."
  19. Ok, so maybe it is slightly premature to hail the end of the food truck era, but here's some news about plans for a mini-copter or tacocopter to deliver in the Bay Area: "According to the bare bones web site, all you have to do is place your order on your iPhone, tap away, and await the TacoCopter."
