After you’re done voting this evening, hopefully you’re available to attend this special dinner at ~TARTINE BAKERY~ in celebration of the Tulum restaurant Hartwood, and the release of Eric Werner and Mya Henry’s new cookbook. Join Chad Robertson and Elisabeth Prueitt of Tartine Bakery and Sam Goinsalvos of the upcoming Tartine Manufactory for a casual evening of passed small plates, and Tartine’s bakers will fill the display case with a selection of desserts inspired by the Yucatan. Come by for a feast of dishes, like pulpo tostadas; lettuce cups, chorizo, mint, cilantro, toasted rice, lime, cotija; roasted chicken with poblano and tomatillo tamale; lime tart with lime caramel; chocolate habanero cake with chocolate avocado buttercream, and horchata cake with cream cheese frosting. Yes, please.

8pm-10pm. Tickets are $80 and include food, beverage, a signed cookbook, gratuity, and tax. 600 Guerrero St. at 18th St.
