Wine Enthusiast Magazine will host its second annual ~TOAST OF THE TOWN~ food, wine and music event at the War Memorial Opera House. I went last year, and the venue made it really unique. This event, an annual highlight of the New York City, Chicago, and now the San Francisco epicurean scene will feature over 70 domestic and international wine producers, plus signature dishes from 30 Bay Area restaurants. There is also a silent auction, with donations from the participating wineries and restaurants, to benefit the San Francisco Food Bank, and live jazz from Loosewig.
Participating restaurants listed on the website include: Ana Mandara, Bar Tartine, Bistro Jeanty, BIX, Café Gibraltar, Campton Place, Cindy's Backstreet Kitchen, Delfina, Étoile at Domaine Chandon, Go Fish Restaurant, Joe DiMaggio's Italian Chophouse, Michael Mina, Mustards Grill, Pica Pica Maize Kitchen, Pizzeria Delfina, PlumpJack Café, Poleng Lounge, Pres a Vi, Quince, Rivoli Restaurant, Straits Restaurant, Sutro's at the Cliff House, The Tonga Room Restaurant & Hurricane Bar and Z. Cioccolato.
Some participating wineries include: Baron Philippe de Rothschild, Bernardus, Champagne Louis Roederer, Domaines Ott, Graham's, Masi Agricola, Perrier Jouet, Robert Mondavi and many more—check out the list here.
