NoisePop Underground Dinner, Cafe Kati's Last Night, More

New, 1 comment

COMING ATTRACTIONS - Word on the street is SF's annual indie music, art and film fest NoisePop is looking to expand its presence throughout the year; and they're using our city's chefs and restaurants to do it. In addition to Flour + Water's upcoming DJ nights, the graffEats Covers dinners are back. The sample course listed on the press release was a take on Thomas Keller's beloved octopus and chorizo salad paired with music: a Reparata and The Delrons cover of The Beatles "Octopus's Garden." It'll be seven courses total, BYOB, happening May 26th at an "undisclosed location." Tickets just went on sale here. [EaterWire]

GOODBYES - Cafe Kati stayed open a little longer than expected, its fateful last day arrives this Saturday. Chef Kirk Webber will feature Japan-inspired food for the benefit of tsuami and earthquake relief. [ISSF]

UNION SQUARE - The Burritt Room has released a slew of new spring cocktails: things like the Black Rose (genever, blackberry syrup, creme Yvette, black-pepper, rose water). They've also fleshed out the snacks a bit with a 4505 Meats bacon-studded hot dog and such. See the new menu, in all its glory, here. [EaterWire]

THE BRUNCH BUNCH - Lady T-Hop passes on news that Oakland's Plum is now open for brunch. We think the menu poses some very difficult decisions. In related news, Plum's adjacent bar may be open in August. [Tablehopper]

ON TAP - The weather is downright balmy, and Frances has announced they're now serving a 2009 saignee of Syrah rose on tap. It'll be available all summer long in incremental $1/ounce pours, just like Frances' existing house blends. [EaterWire]
