EaterWire: Tonga Room Buzz, Andronico's Pulls Foie

New, 3 comments

NOB HILL—At yesterday's Planning Commission meeting, the city brought up the idea of landmarking the Tonga Room, according to Curbed. Playing the game of landmarking businesses is a slippery slope, especially one that was often empty until news of an imminent closure came out. And it's still been empty since then. [Curbed]

BAY AREA—Per SFoodie, Andronico's has stopped selling foie gras in its meat department. [SFW]

FERRY BUILDINGBottoms Up tells us that the Slanted Door's corkage fee is now up to $35. The analysis: "I’m guessing this is because they have SO many well priced wines on their list there’s simply no need for recessionistas like me to BYOB." [IBA]

LISTS—New ice cream shops continue to pop up around town, but Bi Rite Creamery remains leader of the pack and is the only SF representative on Bon Appetit's nationwide top ten list this month. [BA]

WINE INDUSTRY—Rollie Fingers, Oakland Hall-of-Famer, is trying to get into the wine business, by pitching (har) ideas like having "bottles of Cooperstown Cuvee wines with the names and faces of baseball greats" [IBA]
