Hello, gang! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday with friends and fam—we have so much to be grateful for, starting with all this air-cleansing rain. I got a full blast of fresh air under the blue and sunny skies this past Saturday when I was invited to go crabbing on the ocean with my friends, what a blast. So glad no one fell in. Saturday night dinner was epic. I also had a taste of my first SF rock crab—those claws, so sweet. Sport fishermen eat better than anyone.
In case you didn’t get your fill of leftover turkey sandwiches, you’ll want to check out this week’s Table Talk, which also includes a look at Loló’s brand-new cocktail list, SF’s first pizza a teglia at Barbara Express in North Beach, and a quality Dungeness crab feed at The Alice Collective in Oakland!
Last week’s Table Talk covered the new Maum in Palo Alto (OMG, the galbi!), Indian Paradox’s new look, don’t miss the Made In: Denmark pop-up at Baana (there are still a couple tickets left for the dinner with chef Nick Balla this Saturday!), and you still have this week to try the latest Chef’s Cubano from Reem Assil at Media Noche. No plans tonight? Read about the event at The Mint with the California Historical Society.
Am I going to see you this Sunday at the tablehopper boozy holiday brunch with Westland Distillery at The Saratoga? It’s going to be one for the books. Stretchy waistbands and water will be your friends. We just opened six bar seats, don’t miss it! Hope to see you.
Take good care. And if you’re looking to contribute for #GivingTuesday, there’s an amazing donation match happening for the American Red Cross.
Hugs! Marcia Gagliardi
