THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED, SORRY.
What is guaranteed to be quite the industry night is the upcoming Second Annual I-Talian I-Ranian American Spaghetti Feed at ~LONG BAR~ on Monday January 17th. Chefs Massimiliano Conti of La Ciccia and Hoss Zaré of Zaré at Fly Trap will team up with Erik Hopfinger to offer “impressive portions of family-style, soulful cuisine.” For $29, you will get three courses, a glass of sangiovese from the Marche, and it sounds like some Negronis will be in supply as well (let’s just say there will be 25-pound solid blocks of ice that will be carved up and plunked into heavy crystal rocks glasses). Carlo Splendorini of Michael Mina and Ali Tahsini of Bourbon & Branch will stir things up with Jacques Bezuidenhout (a “token South African”) behind the bar.
And one other thing to note: Long Bar has launched weekend brunch, from 11:30am-4pm, with dinner service starting just when brunch wraps up. 2298 Fillmore St. at Clay, 415-440-1700.
