Steph Curry Claps Back at Rockets Fans Bashing International Smoke Houston

He’s giving the place five stars

#5starreview for International Smoke Houston

Ayesha Curry’s restaurant chain International Smoke isn’t open yet in Houston, but salty Rockets fans — bitter at their team’s loss to Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors in the NBA playoffs — have already been laying the criticism on thick, giving the restaurant one-star reviews on Yelp. That’s led to a counter-movement of Curry and Warriors fans leaving five-star ratings for the yet-to-open business, and Steph Curry himself is getting onboard. Frankly, he could be a little biased — here’s what Eater SF reviewer Rachel Levin thought of the SF location.

New 300-seat buffet restaurant opening soon

Aptly called the Palace of Spices, a giant new Indian buffet restaurant is reportedly opening in the Tenderloin on July 1 (at 173 Eddy). The new business comes from the owner of Inner Sunset restaurant Gorkha Kitchen.

Garage Sale at White Cap

Way Outer Sunset cocktail bar/warming hut White Cap, which opened last November, has some new cocktails to try on its second rotating menu. The theme of the zine-style cocktail list from Carlos Yturria is a Garage Sale, and drinks in his ode to spring cleaning include a “Sundress” (Volstead bodka, Suze bitters, watermelon, kaffir lime leaves), a Dart Board (La Vida Mezcal, Pueblo Viejo Añejo Tequila, honey, ginger, lemon) and a “Lava Lamp” a (slushy of Smirnoff vodka, tio pepe fino sherry, aperol, raspberry, lemon).

Cafe Zitouana shutters

Polk Gulch business Cafe Zitouana (1201 Sutter Street) has reportedly closed. Its building is likely to be demolished in favor of denser housing.


Off The Menu: Uncork And Uncap At Outer Sunset’s Newest Hype-Worthy Bar, White Cap

Tis the season for holiday merriment and, well, uncorking (and uncapping) bottles of festive wines.

Chase some tasty waves with some tasty cocktails at White Cap, one of the newest, chic, utterly unique bars in the Outer Sunset. White Cap seeks to bring an elevated experience to your typical neighborhood bar, all while maintaining all the fun that comes with a corner slushie machine.

The bar, located just two blocks from Ocean Beach, sits quaintly at the corner of 46th and Taraval where it delights and enchants all those who pass by with an inviting entryway. It’s the brainchild of surfer and local Matt Lopez, who envisioned a sophisticated yet relaxed neighborhood bar with outstanding cocktails.

The cocktail list will feature a regular menu plus eight specialty drinks, with quarterly changing themes printed in a collectible fanzine-style book. Keep an eye out for drinks with unique names, like the Monkey Wrench, Cat’s Paw and Brush Hammer.

Head bartender Carlos Yturria co-owns the FiDi’s Treasury, so expect a smaller translation of his unique Sherry program from the aformetned bar staple.
Architect Shane Curnyn of Bar Agricole fame has transformed the interior bar space into an intimate hangout that reflects the Outer Sunset’s reputation as a foggy outpost. The low lighting is meant to mirror the foggy ocean, complete with a blue and white color scheme. A modern jukebox is there to complete the chilled out, grown up vibes. Tubular, gang.
