This Week in Food: Bun Mee Opens in Pac Heights, Maverick Hosts a Mystery Night, and Foreign Cinema's Wine Dinner Series Continues

Bun Mee opens in Pac Heights this Friday

Thursday, March 31 

Foreign Cinema’s chefs Gayle Pirie and John Clark prepare a special four-course dinner with Radio-Coteau’s winemaker Eric Sussman as part of their special wine dinner series in the mezzanine. This one’s boasting squab and mache toasts, lamb and Llano Seco pork belly, and warm truffled popcorn to go with whatever film they might be screening in the courtyard below. Tickets are $100 and can be bought by calling the restaurant at (415) 648-7600. 2534 Mission St. at 22nd St.

Also in the Mission, chef Scott Youkilis of Maverick is putting out another Mystery Night. To play, $40 gets you a three-course meal picked at random out of a hat. When it comes to the table, guess at least four of the ingredients in each course (extra points if you can name the wine pairing). The winning table gets some kind of prize, but that’s a mystery too. 3316 17th St. 

Friday, April 1

A new Vietnamese eatery is hitting Fillmore Street this April Fools. Bun Mee is set to have a menu full of traditional and modern takes on street food, including banh mi sandwiches and a Vietnamese caesar steak salad with mixed greens, grape tomatoes, orange and grapefruit, and tea egg. Bonus: There’s delivery within the area. 2015 Fillmore St.

Friday, April 1 to Saturday, April 9 

For the next week, Macy’s in Union Square has a couple of very cool cooking classes on tap. Learn how to make sausage with Ryan Farr of 4505 Meats on April 1, bake pies with Mission Beach Cafe chef Alan Carter on April 2, and become a connoisseur of honey on April 9 when executive chef of the Fairmont Hotel, JW Foster, and beekeeper Helene Marshall stop by. 170 O’Farrell St.
