Tomorrow night, 290 chefs and restaurateurs all across the country will be showing their support for Gulf Coast seafood and for the fishing families whose livelihoods were affected by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. A good cause is always a great excuse to eat out: show your support too just by having dinner at any of the Bay Area restaurants participating in ~DINE AMERICA/DINE LOUISIANA~ on Wednesday December 1st.
The Bacchus Management Group family of restaurants will each be offering one special Gulf seafood dish on this evening—Café des Amis: grilled whole Gulf flounder, raw winter vegetable salad, parsnip and potato gratin; Spruce: Gulf prawns poached in fennel nage, salt-roasted new potatoes, young leeks; Mayfield Bakery & Café: Gulf prawns poached in fennel nage, salt roasted new potatoes, young leeks; and The Village Pub: seared Gulf snapper, celery root mousseline, brown butter and Meyer lemon sauce.
Other participating Bay Area restaurants include Betelnut, Bix, Buckeye Roadhouse, Bungalow 44, Day Break Gourmet Restaurant & Catering, Fish Story, Florio, Fog City Diner, Hayes Street Grill, Il Fornaio, Lark Creek Walnut Creek, MarketBar, Picco, Silks, Tra Vigne, Waterbar, and Zero Zero. Check out the full list of restaurants participating from the West here.
Also, in conjunction with Dine America/Dine Louisiana, the Tizm online auction site will be auctioning restaurant cookbooks and dinners to raise funds for the six culinary schools in the Louisiana state college system, which have recently seen 40% budget cuts.
