This week's tablehopper: daaaaamn Gina!


Our table at CUESA’s Sunday Supper got styled with this delicious Devil’s Gulch Rabbit dish by Lazy Bear, which featured snails, turnips, celery root, and celtuce. Photo: ©

Obrigada to everyone who said hello at Friday night’s Perfect Portuguese Pairings in the Presidio event! And hopefully I’ll see some more of you at this evening’s Wine & Spirits Magazine’s annual Top 100 event—of course the weather is perfect, which means the terrace at the Metreon will be the place to be tonight. Bring on the bubbles.

I’m actually doing a double play, as I do, and scooting over to Bar Agricole for the Enrique Olvera event tonight with Omnivore Books to celebrate his new book, Mexico from the Inside Out. (You can still get tickets!) Again, it will be another gorgeous patio party, with snacks, cocktails, y más!

It was also great to see a bunch of you at CUESA’s Sunday Supper, which always pulls out all the stops. There were more than 40 chefs participating, plus winemakers, bartenders, and sustainable farmers at the reception (plus the Schoolyard to Market students!), four-course gala dinner upstairs in the historic Ferry Building, and the auction—the event contributes more than 50 percent of the cost of CUESA’s educational programs to build a healthy food system. Thank you to everyone for such a memorable night, as always.

On Friday, I’m going to be busy getting ready to co-emcee the James Beard Foundation’s Taste America Tour at Bimbo’s 365 Club, so we’re skipping the Friday issue and we’ll see you next week. Oh, and you can still get tickets to this all-Italian festa!

Since we’re past deadline and Michelin’s PR doesn’t send things to us in time (if at all) and their website is more about dead 404 links than good ones, you can take a look at the San Francisco Michelin 2016 winners here. Congrats to all.

A presto!
Marcia Gagliardi
