A few special meals around town for your radar: on Friday May 27th, chef Sean Brock of Husk in Charleston will be joining Daniel Patterson in the kitchen at ~COI~ for one evening only. 5:30pm-10pm. And on Saturday May 28th, he’ll be cooking with chef Charlie Parker at ~PLUM~.

Over at ~MASA’S~, ham fans will be able to get their jamón Ibérico groove on from May 4th-May 28th with a six-course tasting menu featuring Spain’s prized ham. Executive chef Gregory Short’s menu includes pan-seared rib-eye of Ibérico pork with Fuji apples, celery branch, smoked potato confit pork consommé and pastry chef Maggie Leung’s baked strawberry “Pop Tarts” with Ibérico ham ice cream. $105.

Remember the Dux Sunday night tasting menu I mentioned chef Eddie Lau was launching at The Summit SF? Well, starting this Sunday May 8th, it’s on. The inaugural menu will be available May 8th, May 15th, May 22nd, May 29th, and June 5th. You can read all about it and how to reserve your spot (there are limited seats) on Lau’s new Dux site, ‘cause he’s all organized and shit. I also posted some pics from the test meal here. $60.
