A few months ago, I broke the story that ~BAR TARTINE~ was expanding into the Hideo Wakamatsu luggage store next door. Many new details about the project have been revealed to The Feast, check it all out here. April is the current hoped-for launch date. (And be sure to read the excellent story about Chad Robertson’s bread-making obsession in this month’s San Francisco magazine.)
Also, on Monday November 29th, Peko Peko will be popping up at Bar Tartine, serving udon (kneaded underfoot, rolled and cut by hand) with “hot spring” egg, crispy scallions, and broth made with freshly-shaved bonito. There will be (weather permitting) shoyu-cured steelhead roe with wild cress, simmered yellowtail with daikon, fluffy fried pork and Japanese scallion, and matcha ice milk with milk cookies from Mie. They’ll also be serving craft sake and beer. Five courses will be $60. Cash or check only! Reservations recommended.
