Got a call from Erik Hopfinger, the chef formerly at CIRCA, Spoon, and the opening chef for butterfly when it was in the Mission (and he was a contestant on Top Chef). He is now the new chef at ~THE WATERFRONT RESTAURANT~, starting tomorrow. He will be easing his own dishes onto the menu, which is focused on sustainable and high-end seafood. Also learned David Nepove is going to be making his delicious cocktails at the bar. Pier 7, The Embarcadero at Broadway, 415-391-2696.
