Foreign Cinema, one of Eater's essential 38, is teaming up with Eat Drink SF to throw a blowout brunch party this coming Sunday, as a cap to the weekend of eating, drinking and education. The ticketed event's menu isn't your typical Foreign Cinema brunch fare, instead offering hand-pulled mozzarella to order, fried artichokes, housemade charcuterie, pizzettas, arancini, popsicles and affogato for $85. Consider it a way to keep the weekend's excess going, especially considering the Aperol-sponsored, unlimited cocktails.
However, if you're in need of something a little more low-key following the weekend, 20 restaurants are serving as post-event gathering spots where you're likely to run into some other event attendees. Head to Aveline, Belga, Beretta, Bluestem Brasserie, Canela Bistro & Wine Bar, Central Kitchen, EPIC Steak, Fog City, Hog & Rocks, Huxley, Maven, MKT Restaurant – Bar, Rose's Cafe, Scala's Bistro, Souvla, Spruce, Trace, Twenty Five Lusk, Waterbar and Zero Zero for potential special Eat Drink SF menus and general merriment.
The brunches cap off the seventh annual main weekend affair of eating, drinking and education from some of the city's top talent at Fort Mason Festival Pavilion. Proceeds from the events — like this week's Super Duper Burger guest chef series and Thursday's Taco Knockdown — will support CUESA and the Golden Gate Restaurant Association Scholarship Foundation.
Interested brunchers can snag a ticket here; the event takes place Sunday, August 23 from 11 a.m.- 2 p.m.
