A couple of pop-ups you should add to your to-do list: did you notice the CSF giveaway with tablehopper sponsor Real Good Fish last week? The giveaway is over, but if you’re curious about trying their seafood, you should come to their pop-up with Say Hey Farms this Wednesday June 17th at Matching Half Cafe, when they will be serving smoked black cod spring rolls ($9) and a trio of local, seasonal ceviches ($12). Don’t forget, you’ll be able to order from a selection of beer and wine from Matching Half. 4pm-6pm. 1799 McAllister St. at Baker.
Have you ever had the fantastic handmade pasta from Mattarello? They are popping up this Saturday June 20th at ~BIONDIVINO~, and Dan Petroski and Jessica Mennella of Massican wine will be pouring wine during the pop-up (1pm-4pm). Place your preorder for pasta by Thursday, like the raviolo San Domenico, their take on a classic dish from Imola’s Ristorante San Domenico—the filling is a mixture of ricotta, Parmigiano-Reggiano, nutmeg, and spinach, with a raw egg yolk nestled in the center ($7 each). I personally love their meat-filled tortellini in brodo ($12), and there are ricotta cavatelli ($4.50), two kinds of lasagna, and much more! 1415 Green St. at Polk, 415-673-2320.
