A new sandwich stop in Sonoma County
The Farmer’s Wife, the popular farmers market stand seen at the Ferry Building and festivals like Outside Lands, opened its first brick-and-mortar yesterday. Located in Sebastopol’s Barlow shopping complex, the cafe serves intricately layered sandwiches, open-faced tartines, soups, salads, and cookies, as well as an all-day breakfast menu. Find it from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily at 6760 McKinley Street, Suite 120.
Speaking of the Ferry Building...
The Ferry Building’s new landlords spoke to SF Chronicle about their plans for the city’s landmark. Apparently, they want to further expand the CUESA farmers market, which currently takes place three times a week. (In addition to raising rents soon on a bunch of office tenants, of course.)
Business lunches in Silicon Valley
Over in Palo Alto, Northern Italian restaurant Quattro — located inside Four Seasons Hotel Silicon Valley — recently introduced a “Power Lunch” deal, where the area’s executives can talk shop over a daily, $35 four-course meal that promises to be done within one hour.
La Cocina’s big festival is almost here
The San Francisco Street Food Festival returns this weekend with more than 30 chefs — 90 percent being women — as presented by nonprofit culinary incubator La Cocina. The impressive lineup includes Reem Assil (Reem’s, Dyafa) serving Pali Cali flatbread wraps and Batata Hara fries; Nite Yun (Nyum Bai) serving lemongrass beef skewers and prahok ktiss dip; Isabel Claudido (El Buen Comer) serving chilaquiles; and Fernay McPherson (Minnie Bell’s Soul Food Movement) serving rosemary fried chicken.
