Chef Preeti Mistry graces the menu at Media Noche
In the latest installment of their monthly rotating sandwich series, Mission cubano counter Media Noche is featuring chef Preeti Mistry and her “Vindalated Cubano” sandwich. The creation combines vindaloo pulled pork, curry leaf mustard, melted Swiss cheese, apple fennel turmeric slaw, and citrus pickled red onions (pressed, per usual, by Media Noche chef Casey Rebecca Nunes). With Mistry’s Navi Kitchen closed, it’s a good chance to get a taste of the chef’s flavors, and 10 percent of proceeds from the Vindalated Cubano go to Destiny Arts.
Nothing good happens past 2 a.m.
ICYMI, Governor Brown vetoed Senator Scott Wiener’s bill to allow some CA cities to extend last call beyond 2 a.m. The Governor’s reasoning: “I believe we have enough mischief from midnight to 2 without adding two more hours of mayhem.”
Cocktails at Corridor
The Hi Neighbor folks (Stones Throw, Trestle) recently scored a full liquor license for their Civic Center area spot Corridor, and with bar manager Tyler Groom (Stones Throw) in charge, they’ve got new cocktails ($10-$12). The menu has classics like sidecars and corpse revivers plus specialty concoctions like the Kick Inside (rye, Antica Vermouth, suze and elderflower) and the Black Death (gin, caraway aquavit, and Benedictine).
