Why oh why is this event on a Monday? Drat, I can’t go, but you definitely should go play at ~VS.~. William Werner and his company, polite/persuasion, is joining forces with Coffee Bar to offer San Francisco a night of inventive, seasonal, and modern desserts with Mr. Espresso coffee, beer and wine pairings, plus a groovy visual installation from Alessandro Sabatelli of slinc., and music by Aaron Terry, a.k.a. urbanyetti.

Pastry chef William Werner will offer a collection of “snacks,” plated desserts and to-go items all to be paired with Coffee Bar beverages. Pairings include Riesling, port, beer, specialty coffee beverages made with light, medium and dark roasts, and green and white teas.

Vs. menu highlights include:

caramelized “cinderella” pumpkin, coconut sorbet, black sesame envelope, milk chocolate
“sierra beauty” apple confit, brown butter consommé, cinnamon-meyer lemon ice cream
one pound of mr. espresso creme fraiche-coffee caramels

All items are priced a la carte. Reservations are accepted for parties of six or more. To make a reservation, please email rsvp@politepersuasion.com. Please note, Coffee Bar’s regular dinner service will not be available that evening.
