Hibiscus' Chef Sarah Kirnon Hits the Road

OAKLAND - Chef Sarah Kirnon is leaving Oakland Caribbean destination Hibiscus, and a new menu will be launching there on Thursday of next week. To fans of the restaurant's colorful bill of fare: there's a ray of hope. Scoop reports rumors that she's got a personal project in the works. [ISSF]

POP-UPS - Dan Jablow of Jablow's Meats is starting to do regular Saturday lunch-time pop-ups at Beast and the Hare from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. This weekend, he'll be offering three different sandwiches for $11 each: handmade spicy pastrami with crunchy cabbage slaw, Guinness-braised corned beef with sauerkraut and Russian dressing, and fruitwood-smoked pork loin with fennel-apple slaw. Jablow makes everything but the bread with his own two hands. [EaterWire]
