Behold the Winner of the #7x7Summer Instagram Contest

Last month we asked our fabulous readers to show us their best food photog skills by hashtagging their colorful meals with #7x7Summer. 

We Wanna Be Friends With Hog & Rocks Bartender Michael Lazar

Brooklyn-native and longtime Bay Area resident, Michael Lazar is one of San Francisco's leading experts in spirits and cocktails. Lofty words, I know, but you won't find many other bartenders infusing rye with candy cap mushrooms, “reverse” barrel aging Manhattans, barrel aging beer in 65 gallon bourbon and rye barrels, or inventing a whole cocktail program called "Pimp My Old Fashioned." 

Secret Recipe: Perbacco's Olive Oil Cake

 7x7 asks the city's chefs for the recipes to their most loved cocktails, bar snacks, starters, mains, and desserts. If there's a dish you can't stop thinking about and want to make at home, email schuyler@7x7.com. Your wish may end up on the blog, along with the actual recipe from the chef. 

The Gin & Tonic: The Quintessential Summertime Cocktail

Beefeater Gin & Tonic

The Gin and Tonic—there’s not a better drink during the dog days of summer (or fog days of summer, if you reside in SF).  You’re probably familiar with the classic G&T, but you might not know its checkered past of medicinal uses and global domination. 

Where to Celebrate Bastille Day in SF

Break out your beret, red scarf, and horizontal stripes today as San Francisco celebrates French National Day with a series of Bastille Day bashes.

Taste Testing the New 49ers Menu at Levi's Stadium

You might get a little confused driving up to the new home of the Niners in Santa Clara. At first glance, Levi’s Stadium looks a lot like a Levi’s storeespecially since there’s nary a 49ers logo in sight—but you won’t find any denim wares inside the foodie haven (which also happens to host football games).  

Secret Recipe: Trick Dog's NASCAR Spritz

7x7 asks the Bay Area's chefs for their most beloved food and drink recipes. If there's a dish you can't stop thinking about and want to make at home, email schuyler@7x7.com. Your wish is our command!

Your 2014 Trumer Pils Your City, Your Chef Winner Is...

The people have spoken, and they’ve named our winner of the 2014 Trumer Pils Your City, Your Chef contest—Matthew Accarrino of SPQR!

Silicon Valley Eats: Hummus, Pizza, and Meat Galore

There are sunny days ahead, South Bay—summer's in full force, and there's no time like the present to get out and soak it in with a little barbecue (or maybe a pizza party) on the side. And who doesn't love hummus on a hot day? Thankfully, there are new spots in Palo Alto and Mountain View to help.

Summer Dining and Cocktails on the Waterfront at Oakland’s Lungomare

It can be easy for us SFers to get a little, shall we say, San Fran-centric when it comes to dining out. So we definitely sit up and take notice when an East Bay hotspot starts drawing crowds from across the bay to its doorstep (or, in this case, outdoor patio).
