Eat + Drink
Oktoberfest will continue until all the beer and pretzels are gone.
Six spots to eat and drink at this week.
It's time to escape from flavorless burgers and droopy french fries. For the past twenty-five years, Jacques Pépin, internationally recognized French chef and tv personality has joined us in our kitchens, and hearts, to provide us with tips and recipes for fast food, his way. This October marks the end of a long and delicious run for Pépin, who recently began production on his last (and thirteenth!) series, Jacques Pepin: Heart & Soul, filming at the local KQED studios.
Schuyler Bailey is hungry. Here are her cravings this month.
Dennis Lee may be the new Colonel Sanders. The Namu Gaji chef’s Korean Fried Chicken (KFC), available on the restaurant’s brunch menu, is twice fried and then slathered with a sweet and tangy glaze that looks almost nuclear, thanks to a helping of gochujang, a kicky Korean condiment made from red chiles, rice, fermented soybeans, and salt.
We taste test five local musicians’ private wine labels. Are their grapes as good as their tunes?
After sampling a delicious array of Cachaça 51 craft cocktails from San Francisco's top bartenders, our readers have spoken, and we have a winner! Redford bartender Kelvin Martinez's "Sazonado" cocktail emerged as the reader favorite with its full-bodied, aromatic character and it light, refreshing feel that transitions perfectly into fall.
It’s a good week to eat and drink in Oakland, thanks to a new beer (and brewing) destination in Uptown; a soulful kitchen in West Oakland; and a massive spot for bocce, bowling, and beer in Jack London Square. Plus: Yakitori in Temescal opens next week.
