Eat + Drink
It's hard enough, wouldn't you agree, for a restaurant to make dinner in a fully equipped kitchen, never mind one that's been stripped of its range and hood due to pesky city zoning ordinances.
If you've exhausted all your brunch options in the city, then it's time to check out the scene across the bridge.
Lovers of George R.R. Martin's book series Game of Thrones and avid watchers of the HBO show know that feasting is an important part of the conniving plotline (and often the locale for a central character's demise). While the fabled banquets have inspired recipe blogs, cookbooks, and even beer, San Francisco-based Guild of Cookery takes it one step further. The group of GoT-loving chefs recreate elaborate seven-course meals from the series pop-up style around the city.
Happy eating, East Bay-ers! This week, find new destinations for falafel and fusion tacos in Uptown Oakland, ice cream in Temescal, and a food-friendly drinking destination in Berkeley.
While many San Francisco chefs are known for their high-end and haute creations, they also like to keep it real by paying homage to the ingredients they loved as a kid (or as a big kid)—because let’s face it, nothing melts on a burger quite like American cheese.
Your guide to the tastiest foodie happenings going down this week. Bon appetit!
No need to wait for beer-thirty. It's already rum-fifteen.
