Some local spots are offering menu specials and more for your culinary consideration. First, ~NOMBE~ is inviting you to get a posse of your friends together (six or more) and to come by on Thursday nights for Rediscover the Izakaya. For $25 (inclusive), you’ll be able to graze on a variety of Nombe’s yakitori, grilled pork belly, wings, and more, served family style. Check out the menu and purchase tickets online here; drinks can be purchased separately. 

Tax time got you down? Yeah, I feel ya. Starting Monday April 1st (no joke here), ~PRESIDIO SOCIAL CLUB~ will be launching Cocktails for Tax Relief, a deal on two house cocktails for $15. You can also get your beef on with the $15 steak frites. Through April 15th, available at the bar and on the back deck.

Chef Ben DeVries of ~LUELLA~ has put weekly Blue Plate Specials on the menu, like carnitas tacos on Monday ($18), pork bacon meat loaf on Tuesday ($20), chicken and ribs on Wednesday ($24), lobster and truffle fettuccine on Thursday ($28), bone-in rib-eye for two on Friday ($48), paella Valenciana on Saturday ($24), and Sundays are all about pork belly posole ($20). 1896 Hyde St. at Green, 415-674-4343.

Next time you swing by ~CITY BEER STORE~, you may notice some salumi plates on the menu, courtesy of ~1058 HOAGIE~. Look for a rotation of artisan salami and sausages, like finocchiona, Calabrese salami, and hard beef salami from Chicago. 1168 Folsom St. #101 at 8th St., 415-503-1033.

The folks at ~DOPO~ are doing Roman Tuesdays: for $30 per person (excluding tax and tip), you will feast on an artichoke alla giudia, the classic Roman pasta dish of tonnarelli cacio pepe, and a glass of cesanese. Benissimo. Through June 25th. 4293 Piedmont Ave. at Echo, 510-652-3676.
