what happened to Kokomo in Farmer's Market?

I now live in SF and tried to go to Kokomo Cafe. It wasn't there! Did it move to another location in Farmer's Market? I love this place and I'm so bummed if it's gone. I had my picture up and I want it!

need cake for babies 1st b-day party

Hi-
I would love a sugar free cake but that's probably not possible. Any one know of such a thing?
I love simple old-fashioned , home made style cake. High quality though. I love Tartine but I would prefer a cake baker at a lower price..
Suggestions in San Francisco or South as far as San Mateo?

brunch?

Looking for a brunch spot on Sunday with good, creative food-similar to Zuni but more casual/mellow. Preferably not too much of a wait and possible reservations. Does this exist
And has anyone tried Toast on Church or 24th?

What's great near Embarcadero (north fin. dist.) for dining alone in the evening?

Globe-on Pacific@battery has a small bar but there are always solo diners. I eat there often alone and the bartenders are friendly and the food is awesome. Open until 1am.
It's mediteraanean influenced "local"cuisine. Fresh and yummy. Always a lively interesting crowd. It's safe in the evening.

Sunday night dinner in SF with "scene"?

Later in the evening Globe always has a lively scene and on Sunday's the chef does a "farmer" menu- 4 courses for $39. Local ingredients always well put together and delicious.

where in the heck can you get a good sandwich in sf?

Nothing ethnic or too fancy. Straight forward, fresh deli-style with interesting toppings and specials.

Your favorite place for steak in the Bay Area?

Only if you are sharing it with someone, Globe (pacific@battery) has an amazing steak for 2. Always perfectly cooked and seasoned, and you get the bone!

Is Brandy Ho's Hunan Going Downhill?

Iv'e been going here regularly since the mid-80's. It's still one of my favorite restaurants in the city. They usually ask what temp you want. Sometimes I do find it's not as spicy as I would like but none the less tasty. I say give it another shot.
