BottleRock 2015 is coming up fast, and some of the best live performers are making their way to Napa for some sun- and wine-soaked partying. Imagine Dragons, No Doubt, Robert Plant, The Avett Brothers, Foster the People, Passion Pit, Snoop Dogg, Cage the Elephant, Young the Giant, and many more are prepped to rock the vineyards, and we have four pairs of 3-day general admission passes to give away to our favorite people—7x7 readers!
Oh, the Basque...with their lisping and liberal use of the letter "x." Those, pintxos, though—now, that's something we can get on board with. Bringing both together is Aatxe (aah-CHAY), the latest project from the Ne Timeas Restaurant Group (Flour + Water, Central Kitchen, Salumeria) and The Bon Vivants (Trick Dog), which opens tomorrow as part of the reimagined Swedish American Hall on Market Street.
And now, the moment you've all been waiting for: The table is set with our annual 100 things to eat before you die, each one taste-tested and 7x7 approved. Some dishes are brand-new; some are old favorites making their return. You've got your work cut out for you.
Perhaps the sexiest silver fox in food is coming back to San Francisco in July on his “Close to the Bone” tour, and euphemisms abound.
Some of us here at 7x7 think that cake reigns supreme in the circular desserts category, while others believe the nostalgia, homeyness, and American spirit of pie trumps any layered creation. For the latter of us, we’ve ranked the best in the Bay. Get out your forks, and open your pie hole.
7x7 asks the Bay Area'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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Your wish may end up on the blog, along with the actual recipe from the chef.
