Um, yeah: two of my favorite things: oysters and Champagne. And since we’re talking about the ~COMSTOCK SALOON~, there’s a whole lot of other goodness that’s also going to be served on Tuesday December 14th. Jacquesson et Fils will be pouring their bubbles and Drake’s Bay Oyster Co. will shuck away during the reception, and then chef Carlo Espinas will be preparing a four-course oyster dinner. The menu includes oysters Victor Hugo (recipe from Hotel St. Francis, September 23rd, 1910); Hangtown salad, with escarole hearts, oyster vinaigrette, salt pork, egg, pickles; roasted guinea hen, with oyster and apple stuffing, turnips and their greens: followed by Époisses, pickled strawberries, honey, and walnut bread. The meal will also include intriguing discourse on the history of San Francisco’s infamous Barbary Coast, and the sunken ships still buried underground. $75 per person (tax and gratuity not included). To hold your reservation with a credit card, please call Aimee Santos at 415-617-0071 or email.
