Ame Restaurant

FINANCIAL DISTRICT— Ame is reinstating its Kaiseki dinner series, offering the opportunity to taste a multi-course meal from chef Hiro Sone in a very intimate setting. Eight seats are available at Ame's sushi bar, where Sone and chef Takashi Saito will prepare each dish with fish sourced from Japan's Tsukiji fish market. The next dinner is Wednesday, April 29, served promptly at 6:30 p.m. [EaterWire]

UNION SQUARE— Au Bon Repas, restaurant group that includes Cafe Claude, Claudine and Gitane, will add another destination to its empire later this year. The new project will occupy the former Festoon Saloon space on Claude Lane, with a full liquor license. No real details yet, but stay tuned for more information. [Inside Scoop]

CASTRO— To celebrate five years of Bisou Bistronomy, the restaurant will throw a casino-style party called "Bisou en Blanc." Attendees (who are required to dress in all-white) will enjoy a five-course prix fixe highlighting the "greatest hits" from every year they've been open. The celebration will span two nights, April 29 and May 2 ($50/pp). The full menu can be found here. [Hoodline]

MISSION— Fans of the soon-to-shutter Lexington Club want to ensure that generations to come will understand the cultural significance of San Francisco's last lesbian bar. The group has contacted the Board of Supervisors and have a plan in place to install a commemorative plaque at the corner of 19th and Lexington. The plaque is not funded by the city, so visit the fundraising page to help them get the plaque in place before the club closes on April 30. [Mission Local]
