Just in case you missed the new LihoLiho Yacht Club pop-up by chef Ravi Kapur (formerly at Prospect and Boulevard), you will have a few more Mondays to catch him at ~CITIZEN’S BAND~ (until March 12th) and possibly beyond that. Courses are served family/dinner-party style, with five dishes in the first course, five dishes in the second, and two sweets at the end (take a look on Facebook for pictures of the food, you’ll be immediately hungry). It’s $65 for the menu, which includes tax and gratuity; beverages are additional. Due to the spirit of the dinner and the limited staff/resources, allergies and aversions are difficult and unlikely to be accommodated. Reservations are currently being taken online through Citizen’s Band. Updates can be found on Twitter as well.

Grub Street shares the news that the opening of flour + water’s Central Kitchen and Salumeria has been pushed out to late April or so, but in the meantime, you can attend two pop-up previews of Salumeria from executive chef Thomas McNaughton and chef de cuisine Matt Sigler. The first will be held at flour + water (2401 Harrison St. at 20th St.) on Leap Day (Wednesday February 29th) from 11:30am-2:30pm, serving antipasti and three sandwiches ($10 each); the second will be Friday March 2nd at Clooney’s Pub (1401 Valencia St. at 25th St.) from 6pm-10pm. The menu includes pork rinds, a picnic plate ($10), and a sandwich ($10)—-The Galley and Rocky’s Frybread will also be participating in this second event. Both events are cash only and will offer takeout and eat-in options.

On Sunday March 4th, ~PICCINO~ will be having a sidewalk party, with the Oyster Girls shucking oysters from Tomales Bay Oyster Company. You can enjoy them raw on the half-shell, or barbecued with sauce (or if you’re like me, both). Piccino’s own housemade pork sausages will also be served. Noon until things run out.
