I thought you’d like to know about two more cool, upcoming “guest chef” programs happening around town. First, when THE SUMMIT opens in the Mission on Tuesday August 24th (well, that’s the plan for now), chef Eddie Lau is going to be launching a guest pastry program. He wants to instill a rotating/incubator dessert chef program, where (perhaps unknown) pastry chefs can try out and highlight their creations, serving them for three-four months at a time. The desserts would also be served late night, which is a nice feature. You can read more on Eddie’s HotFoodPorn blog. 780 Valencia St. at 19th St.
And consider this a smoky heads up: Ryan Ostler, formerly of Bruno’s, is going to be joining his lady (pastry chef Katharine Zacher) for a Monday night of barbecue at ~BAR TARTINE~ on August 23rd. There will be three-four courses served family style of their delicious down-home cooking. I’ll have more details next week—and more info on upcoming dates as well. Hubba.
