Here are a few special dinners for your consideration. If you’re feeling flush, a few upcoming ~OUTSTANDING IN THE FIELD~ dinners in the Bay Area have tickets available. Some of them (like a dinner with AQ’s chef Mark Liberman in Watsonville on Monday June 11th) offer a good excuse to get out of town. For example, guest chef Dennis Lee of Namu Gaji will be at County Line Harvest at Red Hill Ranch in Petaluma on Saturday June 9th. Check out dates and more here.

Coming up on Tuesday June 12th through Friday June 15th is ~OLIVETO~’s Oceanic Dinners. The dinners will include reprises of historic San Francisco seafood dishes, like crab Louis, Hog Island oyster po’boys, and sand dabs stuffed with local spot shrimp.

Tied in to the event, Oliveto is also kicking off It’s Complicated: A Series of Conversations About Eating, Cooking, and the Politics of Food. The first panel is “Our Local Seas: A Comeback Story,” discussing the state of our local seas, on Saturday June 9th from 2pm-3:30pm, tickets are $10.
