Chef Anthony Yang will make an appearance at Naked Kitchen on Thursday, October 17, for a five-course pop-up dinner featuring a cameo by chef Aaron London (formerly of Ubuntu). Yang also does brunches called Ante Meridian at Dear Mom. And this week's appearance by London will be a rare treat as he's been bartending at Locanda while trying to open his own restaurant. Tickets at $100. (Pst, chef Joshua Wilder Oakley of Tango and Stache will also host a dinner here this Tuesday. Eater has the details.)
April Bloomfield and Ken Friedman's new version of Tosca Café opened its doors last Thursday. Jay Barmann checked out the new digs and the new menu, which included baby octopus cured in olive oil and gemelli pasta ('cacio e pepe' style with pecorino and black pepper).
Wine & Spirits Magazine will get you nice and toasty at its tenth annual Top 100 Tasting on Tuesday, October 15th from 6:30 pm-8:30 pm at City View at the Metreon. Tickets are a staggering $105, but you'll forget the price de t after the first bottle of wine.
If all else fails, have a burrito at ">one of these fine locations.
