This week's tablehopper: I can see clearly now.

Here is the rainbow I’ve been prayin’ for—it’s gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright) sun-shiny day. Happy Pride month, everyone, and I’m glad the sun finally decided to make an appearance.

Although the gray skies and lousy wind didn’t stop me and my friends from our walk across the city on Sunday, celebrating two of my friends’ 25th anniversary of living in SF! We walked from the Filbert Steps all the way to the Cliff House, about nine miles in all, and I can’t recommend it highly enough! Get some friends together (ideally some SF old-timers, so you can share stories and trivia along the way) and don’t forget your flask (it gets chilly by Lands End!).

A bunch of restaurant folks were celebrating last night with the announcement of Michelin stars for California. Congrats to Campton Place on gaining their second star, and Maum, Sorrel, and Angler now have a star (although Saison lost one, dropping to two stars). You can also read the Bib Gourmand listings here.

You can celebrate some local culinary talent at next Tuesday’s StarChefs: 2019 Rising Star Award Winners, which includes a walk-around tasting gala. Don’t miss it!

See you soon, and make some gumbo in honor of Leah Chase. What a life.

Big XO.
