Foodie Agenda: Sake, Tapas, and More
This week's edible events have your tastebuds covered.
Thursday, November 14
Taking the former City Tavern location at 3200 Fillmore is Sabrosa, which opened yesterday. Previously the opening chef at Nopalito, Jose Ramos joins the Sabrosa team. This new spot’s goal is to bring fresh market finds and real Mexican flavors to the Marina as well as a full service bar. Sabrosa will be open seven days a week and they’re serving up lunch, dinner, bar bites, and brunch on the weekends. Some of the new creations coming out of the Sabrosa kitchen are seared Mayan spice rubbed ribeye, lime cured fish, and Dungeness crab tortas. Mmm. 3200 Fillmore @ Greenwich.
If there were a sommelier for sake, Stuart Morris is it. He will be at the Mandarin Oriental tonight at 6:30 p.m., guiding guests through a multi-course dinner and sake tasting. Caramelized scallops, sake poached quince, and crispy pork belly are among the delicious menu of dishes that guests will be enjoying at tonight’s event. 222 Sansome @ Pine.

You can never have enough tapas in your life, which is why the Tapas y Vino event at Antologia is pretty much a no brainer.

Then join an interactive class on how to make ceviche. Enjoy a complimentary flight of three Latin American wines with your fresh ceviche. Tickets are $40 and the event starts at 2 p.m. 515 Broadway @ Kearny.
