Lunch at Luce, Benefit for CUESA
Luce is debuting a new two-course lunch option starting February 8th to benefit CUESA, the Center for Urban Education About Sustainable Agriculture. The non-profit organization operates the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market, and 5% of proceeds from the lunch menu will be donated towards the organization. There are two options for each course, but if you go, order the scallop crudo and the hand cut pasta with duck ragu—it’s just the right thing to do. // $25, 11am-2:30pm starting February 8, 888 Howard St. (SoMa); lucewinerestaurant.com
Fat Tuesday at 1300 Fillmore
Prepare for Mardi Gras with a special Fat Tuesday menu at 1300 Fillmore. Patrons will enjoy snacks such as cheesy grit sticks with tomato marmalade or blackened crawfish croquettes with a red eye remoulade by Chef de Cuisine, Jake Whitlock. Sip on southern-inspired cocktails such as the pecan Old Fashioned with scotch, muscovado sugar, pecan bitters and a chicory ice cube or the more holiday-appropriate Sazerac. Yum. // Tuesday, February 9, 1300 Fillmore St. (Western Addition); 1300fillmore.com
