Baller Stones Throw and SPQR Dinners, and More A.M. Intel

Four things to know today


The next two Stones Throw Eat Like a Chef, Drink Like a Somm dinners

Stones Throw is continuing its monthly Eat Like a Chef, Drink Like a Somm dinner series, this time with Jardinière on Monday, March 27 and Mourad on Monday, April 24. The restaurants team up at Stones Throw to cook a dinner benefitting Meals on Wheels SF. It’s the fourth year of the series, and last year’s dinners raised over $30,000 for Old Skool Cafe. You can grab tickets to the $60, five-course evening here for Jardinière and here for Mourad.

Attend an SPQR-branded caviar dinner

Fun fact about Fillmore Italian mainstay SPQR that you may not have known: chef/owner Matt Accarrino harvests and produces his own sturgeon caviar for the restaurant, and beyond. Accarrino will be featuring the luxe product in a four-course $98 prix fixe dinner (or a la carte) at SPQR on Wednesday, March 1 through Saturday, March 11. The dishes include “chips and dip” or smoked sturgeon salad with skin chips, angelica caper, and dried Napa Valley herbs; smoked sturgeon with potato gnocchi, pea pesto, and Sicilian pignoli; pancetta and black garlic wrapped sturgeon with smoked potato, California asparagus, and mushroom.

Short-staffed? There’s an app for that

There’s been a lot of talk in the last couple of years about the labor shortage in San Francisco, with restaurants struggling to find quality employees. Because this is the Bay Area, there’s now an on-demand labor app to contend with that problem. Called Pared, it’s of course labeled “the Uber of the restaurant employment industry,” the Chronicle reports. Read all about the service here.

Get ready for Bay Area grocerants

San Francisco already has more fast casual restaurants than seemed possible just a few years ago, so it doesn’t feel like a stretch to say that grocerants might be next. What’s a grocerant, you ask? Head on over to this feature on to learn all about them.
