The Food Team’s Bargain Chronicles list for the Tenderloin recently lost one of its inexpensive options. Bang San Thai at 791 O’Farrell St. (at Larkin), a place we picked for its Thai halal dishes, shuttered quietly earlier this month. As the write-up noted, Bang San might not have been “aesthetically the most unique food destination in the neighborhood,” but its menu was littered with Thai options all done respectably.
Opening a restaurant in the Bay Area isn’t a pursuit for the faint of heart. Just ask Lex Gopnik-Lewinski, the owner of Augie’s Montreal Deli, formerly a pop-up known as Augie’s Montreal Smoke Meat. If all goes according to plan, Gopnik-Lewinski says he’ll be opening a brick-and-mortar location in Berkeley (875 Potter St.) on Feb. 14. “We’re opening on Valentine’s Day come hell or high water,” said Gopnik-Lewinski, who added that his original goal was to have the place open by September 2017.
The ramen chain’s massive outpost at 18 Yerba Buena Lane will be its first full-dining concept on the West Coast. For context, the Berkeley spot that opened last year is considered a “ramen house,” a smaller space with a more compact menu. Meanwhile San Francisco’s restaurant spans about 4,600 square feet and seats 86. Its menu of Hakata Tonkotsu ramen, izakaya-style dishes, along with wine, beer, cocktails and more than 50 kinds of sake, is meant for more traditional sit-in dining.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
