Blue Bottle's Iced Coffee Is Here; Abbot's Secret Burger

NORTHERN CALIFORNIA—It's official: the Blue Bottle packaged New Orleans iced coffee has landed. You can find it in the milk section at every NorCal Whole Foods, as well as at Blue Bottle's shops. (Didn't see our first look at it a few weeks back? Check it out.) [EaterWire]

THE MISSION—Obsessive trackers of secret off-menu items, take note: The Abbot's Cellar has introduced an off-menu burger, made with ground short ribs, Highway 1 cheese, harissa aioli, and IPA pickles. It's available at the bar for $16 (quantities limited), and would make for a good third player in an off-menu burger tour of the Mission (alongside Heirloom Cafe's Epoisses burger and Namu Gaji's loco moco).

THE MISSION—Do you make a pie worth writing home about? Consider entering the second annual SF Pie Social and Competition, to be held at the Verdi Club on April 13. The baking brains behind Three Babes Bakeshop, Tartine Bakery, Humphry Slocombe, and Dessert First Girl will judge, and proceeds will benefit the SF Community School. (Don't bake? There are tickets for pie eaters, too.) [EaterWire]

SOMA—And finally, congrats to Darwin Cafe, which overcame both a shoebox-sized space and stiff local competition to make Thrillist's listicle of the 21 best sandwich shops in the US of A. [Thrillist]
