So much love and laughter happen around the dinner table, and Bi-Rite Market wishes you a deliciously memorable holiday. If you want to cook it all yourself, the staff at our Markets are eager to talk food. For those looking to spend less time in the kitchen, you can rely on our chefs to prepare your traditional holiday meal and pies using recipes and inspiration from their own families.

And this year, our annual Wine Sale (20 percent off 12 bottles or more) is happening now! We’ll help you select the perfect bottles for the holiday—and a few more for the rainy nights ahead.

We’re here for you at our 18th Street and Divisadero Markets 8am-9pm daily (except Thanksgiving and Christmas, which is when we’re closed and get to eat good food with our good people).

This Thursday November 16th, Nick’s Cove and Cottages, on the shores of Tomales Bay, is pleased to host an intimate Sea Smoke dinner with celebrated winemaker Victor Gallegos, featuring an inspired five-course menu by chef Joshua Seibert.

The no-host bar opens at 5:30pm, with dinner at 7pm. Courses include local seasonal specialties paired with some of Sea Smoke’s most sought-after wines, like Drakes Bay oysters with Meyer lemon mignonette and pomegranate paired with the 2013 Sea Spray Blanc de Noirs; salmon mousse with dill and focaccia paired with the 2015 Sea Smoke Chardonnay; and grilled quail with roasted root vegetables and ras el hanout gastrique paired with the 2013 Southing Pinot Noir.

The dinner is $185 per person, including tax and gratuity, and tickets may be purchased here. For menu info and more, visit here.

Must be 21 and over to purchase tickets. No refunds.
