~FLOUR + WATER~ is taking full advantage of their private “Dough Room” these days with a variety of private events. First up, a winemaker series on Monday nights, with pairings from Skylark on January 31st, and Palmina on February 7th. Chef Thomas McNaughton will be preparing a five-course tasting menu, with two pairings per course (whoa). It’s an intimate affair, with room for 12 max. $130; tax and gratuity extra. The first seating for these dinners (6pm) is sold out, so only space for the 9pm seatings remain (quite the way to start the week, right?). Reservations: 415-826-7000 or email.
And then on Tuesday February 8th, The Bon Vivants (Josh Harris and Scott Baird) will be doing their own five-course cocktail pairing dinner, creating cocktails made only from ingredients that are legally served under a beer and wine license: think, sherry, beer, vermouth, some amari, etc. Both the cocktails and the cuisine will be prepared directly in front of the evening’s guests, and you can sure as hell expect some stories, laughs, and more. Space is limited to 10 people. $150, all inclusive. 7pm-10pm. Reservations: 415-826-7000.
