I happened to find myself in on Fillmore yesterday and stopped in to The Grove (2016 Fillmore St., 415-474-1419) with a mission in mind: I wanted to see if their bran muffins were still as good as I remember.

After nearly a 10-year absence from any West Coast store, Emanuel Ungaro is back at Neiman Marcus, which hosted a trunk show as part of the festivities celebrating the Paris fashion house's return to California.

Sardinian Special

We’ve been given a hot tip about an upcoming event at La Ciccia. Everyone we talk to is wild for their lusty Sardinian food (and especially their Spaghetti with Cauliflower and Bottarga), so it’s no wonder our informant enthusiastically recommended that we make our reservations—stat—for the dinner on April 30th.

Here’s what the lucky diners can look forward to:

House-cured Salumi with Home Pickled Vegetables

Pork Short Ribs with Saffron and Tomato Juice

Sardinian Gnochetti served with Meat Sauce

Roasted Suckling Pig with Sardinian-style Seasonal Vegetables

Ungaro Post-Launch Party

Asim and Isha Abdullah, who took over the Paris fashion house Emanuel Ungaro at the end of 2005, threw an Ungaro Fashion Show after-party at their Pacific Heights pied-à-terre. (The fashion show kicked off the West Coast launch of the Ungaro line—after a 10-year absence and with new creative director Peter Dundas at the helm—at Neiman Marcus.)
