Here is a trio of deals on nice things like oysters and bubbly. First, you can swing by ~BRASSERIE S&P~ in the Financial District during the month of August and try a variety of offers, from a half-dozen oysters and half-bottle of Gosset Brut Excellence Champagne for $45 (whether that’s for one or two people is up to you, hic). Or you can order a dozen oysters and a bottle of Argyle Brut 2008, Oregon for $50, or pony up for a bottle of PJ (Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque Champagne 2004) for $198.
Over in Hayes Valley, ~BOXING ROOM~ will be offering $1 oysters Monday-Friday from 11:30am-4:30pm, starting August 20th. You can add a glass of Avinyó Cava for only $5, though if you’re more into beer, Abita Amber, Jockamo IPA, and Turbodog will also be $5. They are also kicking off a plate lunch special, Monday-Friday, from 11:30am-3pm. The plate will include a main course that changes daily, plus a salad, drink, and dessert for $15.
At ~GRAND CAFÉ~ from now until the end of September, you can order the “Bubbles and Fries” deal at the bar. It includes a cone of truffle fries and two glasses of sparkling wine for $10. To share or not to share, that is the question. The special is only available at the bar, but you can get it anytime they are open.
