A bunch of pop-ups and guest chefs in the coming weeks! Eater mentioned the upcoming EASTERN ADDITION, a Wednesday night pop-up coming to Vinyl on Divis in October from Desi Danganan and Tim Luym (previously The Summit and Poleng Lounge) and Jacobo (or as I know him, Hakobo!) Juarez (Som). This regional Asian-themed pop-up has Luym working with former Bushi-tei owner Tak Matsuba for the first month, followed by Dennis Lin of Burmese Kitchen, and then the food of the Philippines (Luym will probably lead that one). There’s a Kickstarter to help fund the project and a kickoff party on Saturday October 6th at The Bold Italic (hello oysters and music from Hot Pocket—pledge $45 for a ticket!); the first pop-up is October 17th, can’t wait.

Another Kickstarter project: down in Half Moon Bay, some folks are trying to open a mobile crab shack, POPPY’S CRAB SHACK; more about the trailer here.

This Thursday September 20th, chef Susan Feniger will be at INSALATA’S in Marin for a dinner celebrating her new book, STREET Food: Irresistibly Crispy, Creamy, Crunchy, Spicy, Sticky, Sweet Recipes. The menu includes 14 dishes, like Korean rice salad and crispy shiso shrimp. 6:30pm. $110 (includes the meal, wine, tax, tip, and a signed copy of the book). Tickets here.

On Monday September 24th, Danish chef Bo Bech of Restaurant Geist will be at ~BAR TARTINE~ for a special dinner ($110 per person), 5:30pm-10pm.

~COI~ is hosting two international chefs: Josean Alija (executive chef of Nerua at the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain) and Magnus Nilsson (head chef of Fäviken Magasinet restaurant in Sweden). Look for an eight-course collaborative menu from Alija with chef-owner Daniel Patterson on Friday September 28th ($165 per person, not including tax and gratuity), with wine pairings available for an additional $105. Patterson and Nilsson come together on Saturday October 20th: there will be an eight-course tasting menu for $250 (not including tax and gratuity), which includes a signed copy of FAVIKEN; wine pairings are available for an additional $105. For reservations, call 415-393-9000.
