Zaré at Fly Trap Stops Serving Lunch, Spark's Big Dessert Party Approaches, and More

THE LUNCH BUNCH - Zaré’s Grill and Grain, the pop-up lunch operation at Zaré at Fly Trap, will serve its last lunch on Friday. Chef-owner Hoss Zaré says that it was too difficult to serve a totally different menu during the day, and the concept didn't catch on as quickly as he hoped. Dinner service, however, is still full speed ahead. [ISSF]

VIDEO INTERLUDE - Vice has a video of Ravi Kapur filmed before he left Prospect. In it, you get to meet a few of Kapur's former sous chefs, any of whom could potentially be the successor to the Prospect executive chef throne. At the end, Kapur also says that he can't imagine doing anything other than cooking in San Francisco. Promising. [Vice]
