EaterWire: Fox Stays at Myth, Oscar Nods for Ratatouille

JACKSON SQUARE—The craziness continues at Myth, where wine honcho Alex Fox—last thought to be joining the Kuleto Brigade at Epic Roasthouse sometime soon—will instead be staying at Myth until the sale is final (thought to be sometime in March), according to tomorrow's Inside Scoop. Unfortunately, chef Sean O'Brien's last day is now set for January 31st, which poses several more questions. [Scoop, Item #4]

TINSELTOWN—The best movie ever featuring a Thomas Keller cameo, Disney/Pixar blockbuster Ratatouille, has been nominated for a whopping five Academy Awards: Best Animated Feature Film of the Year, Achievement in Music Written for Motion Pictures (Original Score), Achievement in Sound Editing, Achievement in Sound Mixing and Original Screenplay. []

THE MISSION—On February 7th, Foreign Cinema will pay homage to Fellini in the only way it knows how: an 8 1/2-year anniversary celebration. Tickets are $40, and menu and cocktail items will hearken back to Foreign Cinema's past. Proceeds will benefit the non-profit organization StreetSmart 4 Kids of San Francisco. RSVP by the first of the month at (415) 648-7600. [EaterWire Inbox]

MORE MISSION—Only a quartet of local restaurants were lucky enough to nab a famed acorn-fed La Quercia pig in the first round of availability, and Bar Bambino is offering a special six-course, $175 tasting menu (wine pairings included) that showcases every cut of the super swine not reserved for curing. The event is on Thursday, January 31st, at 8 pm. More info can be had at (415) 701-8466. Oh, and insert a Mission-hipster joke at your own leisure. [EaterWire Inbox]
