Congrats to Eric Ochoa, Alvaro Rojas, and Jay De Natale on getting their beautiful ELDA open in the former Bar San Pancho in the Mission. It’s a tropical oasis (designed by ROY), with pan-Latin and Caribbean cocktails and food (from sikil pak with vegetables to carnitas tacos), plus natural wines and local beers. I was hoping to swing by before this week’s issue to check it out and give you some firsthand details, but someone was buried with too many deadlines last week (halp!). Take a peek at the Eater post for some pretty pics. Open daily 4pm-2am. 3198 16th St. at Guerrero.
~PICCINO~’s full liquor license is in full swing, with a list of cocktails, a selection of amari, and a short list of whiskey, Cognac, and other spirits. You can enjoy their Bloody Mary at brunch, with San Marzano tomatoes, Espelette pepper, and a skewer of garden pickles from Piccino Fields. They’re going to be building out a full bar in the building next door as part of a new casual eatery exclusively focused on pizza and drinks, slated to open before the end of this year! I’ll have more on that soon.
July is here, which means it’s a great time to book a table for lunch or dinner at ~ONE MARKET~ to celebrate Women in Wine! All month long (July 1st-31st), One Market will feature over 100 wines by female winemakers, growers, and owners for 50 percent off, curated by sommelier and wine director Tonya Pitts. I recommend coming in on a Friday or Saturday for their excellent prime rib, prix-fixe dinner, with a Pt. Reyes blue cheese wedge salad, and their Market Street ($47.95) or bone-in cut ($55.95) of rotisserie, wood-fired prime rib (served with creamed spinach, horseradish cream, and a popover). Add one of their Singular Sensation desserts for just $4.95 more (Bradley’s butterscotch pudding, duh).
They are also collaborating with La Cocina vendor Aedan Fermented Foods on a four-course menu available à la carte for lunch and dinner, with 10 percent of prix-fixe proceeds donated to La Cocina.
Bourbon fans, you can kick off the holiday weekend at this bourbon and beer tasting happening on the rooftop of the Hotel VIA on Wednesday July 3rd. There will be barbecue available as well, and bluegrass. Tickets and more details here. 5:30pm-8pm. 138 King St. at 2nd St.
