Namu started serving brunch a few months ago; and now starting this Sunday at noon, they'll be offering a regular box pickup for County Line Harvest's rogue market as well. The brothers who own the Inner Richmond Korean-Japanese-Californian restaurant: Dennis, Daniel and David Lee, are just back from a field trip and farm cookout up at County Line, so they're very excited to be starting the program. It works just like a CSA with a "mystery box" of local, organic produce, but you don't have to commit to more than a box at a time.
Sweetening the deal considerably, chef Dennis Lee will be giving away free jars of pickles and kimchee along with recipe suggestions on what to do with the produce. Each $25 box will offer a combination of organic salad greens, root vegetables and other seasonal goodies such as strawberries, flowers, cucumbers, tomatoes and pumpkins. Order in advance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. And if you work up an appetite getting over to 6th and Balboa, Namu brunch offerings like loco moco, bento boxes, housemade donuts and bottomless mimosas ($15) will be there to sustain you. In a few weeks -- if things go well these first few Sundays -- Lee will add on to the market set-up with a ready-to-cook protein offering and maybe even some of Namu's delectable sauces and marinades for sale. "We hope to help families in the Richmond who want fresh produce, but can't make it across town to the Ferry Building," says Lee. [EaterWire]
