Zaré at Fly Trap chef and owner Hoss Zaré and Joyce Goldstein are hosting a ~MEDITERRANEAN DINNER BENEFIT~, a special evening including a cocktail reception and five-course Mediterranean feast, benefiting Meals On Wheels of San Francisco. The dinner celebrates and commemorates three decades in the evolution of Mediterranean cuisine in the Bay Area. Goldstein and Zaré will prepare alternate dishes in the five-course meal.
Master Sommeliers Evan Goldstein, Joyce Goldstein's son, and Chris Blanchard will pair unique Mediterranean wines with the five-course feast. Each sommelier will pour a two-ounce taste of their selected wine to accompany each dish.
It all begins with a Champagne reception with light appetizers at 6pm, followed by dinner at 7pm. Seats are available for $200 per person, excluding tax and gratuity. Net proceeds will be donated to Meals On Wheels of San Francisco.
For twelve years, Joyce Goldstein was chef and owner of SQUARE ONE restaurant, which pioneered Mediterranean cuisine in San Francisco by combining influences from Italy, Spain, France, Greece, Turkey, the Middle East, and North Africa. Goldstein is the recipient of several James Beard Awards including Best Chef, California, in 1993. A prolific cookbook author, many of her works have won industry awards.
Hoss Zaré, who immigrated to San Francisco from Tabriz, Iran in 1986, ran his namesake Zaré restaurant and Bistro Zaré in San Francisco and Zaré Napa before buying historic The Fly Trap, the restaurant where he held his first job in the U.S. as a line cook, in August of last year.
