A few tidbits: ~GATHER~ is starting full lunch service today, Tuesday March 2nd. The menu includes salads (like baby escarole with toasted nori in garlic-lemon-tahini dressing), soup, sandwiches (like Long & Bailey pulled pork on pan di mie roll with crème fraîche), pizza (local chanterelles with fontinella, rapini, braised leeks, and thyme), and dessert. Soups and salads range from $7-$10; sandwiches $10-$12; and pizzas $12-$15. Lunch hours will be Monday through Friday, 11am-3pm. They will be adding to-go lunch in the next week or so.

More news: there is now a full-time pastry chef, Adam Weiss, who replaces opening consultant Amy Pearce (he was last at XYZ in San Francisco’s W Hotel). Coming up next, and just in time for spring: the 48-seat patio should be open in the coming month, and full-service brunch begins April 1st.
