Chefs Feed App Tells You Where Local Star Chefs Eat, Three Twins Closed Indefinitely For Repairs, More

APPS - Today some very special local food industry insiders have come out with an iPhone app called Chefs Feed. It lets you instantly access the favorite dishes of your favorite chefs. It goes like this: 1) Download the app. 2) Choose your city. (Right now they've got versions for New York, San Francisco, Chicago and Los Angeles.) 3) Pick the chef you want to use as your filter. 4) Read about his or her favorite dishes. 5) Go eat them. 6) Or don't, but at least now you know! According to Thrillist, they'll be rolling out six more cities before the year's out. [EaterWire, Thrillist]

DISASTER WIRE- In the unfortunate news department, Three Twins ice cream on Haight and Fillmore sustained some significant water damage from the fire in the Lower Haight earlier this week. At this point, owner Neal Gottlieb suspects he'll have to close up "for months" to make up for it. He may do a pop-up ice cream shop in the meantime, and they'll be offering scoops at the benefit event at the Peacock Lounge next week. Of course, you can still get his pints at various markets and corner stores around town. [EaterWire]

EMBARCADERO - Before Teatro ZinZanni exits its current location at Pier 29, they're bringing in some star chef power to create the last hurrah menu. GrubStreet reports that existing executive chef Patrick Fassino will partner up with Taste Catering's Yigit Pura to create a five-course Americana-themed affair. They'll keep it up until ZinZanni as we know it closes up at the end of the year. [GrubStreet]

COMING ATTRACTIONS - There are still tickets left for the 5th Annual WhiskeyFest, pawning off 250 single malt and blended Scotches; Irish, bourbon, American, Japanese, Canadian and other whiskies from all over the world. It all goes down at the Marriot (and is usually quite the industry showdown). More information is here. [EaterWire]

CHEF SHUFFLES - Woodside's new Station 1 was whisked into the limelight earlier this year when Sir Baur gave it a three-star hi-five for its food. Then, abruptly, exec chef Zack Freitas moved on and sous chef Ryan Harris stepped up to fill the void as they looked for new talent. Now today, we learn that Ryan Harris is that new talent. He's been promoted to the exec chef role and Inside Scoop has his new menu. Do let us know what you think, should you try it. [ISSF]
