Slow Food SF Convivial Table: Hayes Street Grill
Due to the extremely high demand for our Evening on Sustainable Seafood at Hayes Street Grill, we are moving into the restaurant's larger dining room and now making additional seats available. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience and thank the entire community for your overwhelming interest and support.
If you do not see tickets for sale, it means we are completely sold out. We hope to see you at Food form the Heart, Feb. 12th at the Ferry Building Marketplace.
We will be sampling the best of the daily catch from local fishermen, expertly prepared for us in the Hayes Street kitchens. For three decades, Hayes Street Grill has proudly featured fresh seafood (and naturally raised meats) paired with local seasonal produce in numerous simple preparations designed to let the natural flavors and freshness of the ingredients shine.
Patricia Unterman is a partner and chef at the restaurant. She is also a celebrated food critic and author (including the indispensable San Francisco Food Lovers Guide) who is one of the most respected figures on the San Francisco culinary scene. We are delighted that she will be dining with us to talk, to teach, to smile and laugh, and to share her thoughts. The primary topic of discussion on this particular evening will be sustainable seafood.
Patty has also invited her friend and purveyor Paul Johnson of Monterey Fish Market to join us at The Convivial Table. Paul too is a distinguished chef and author, plus an impassioned advocate for responsible fishing practices. In 2008, Paul won the prestigious IACP Cookbook of the Year and numerous other awards for his book Fish Forever: The Definitive Guide to Understanding, Selecting and Preparing Healthy, Delicious and Environmentally Sustainable Seafood. He also serves on the advisory board of the Monterey Bay Aquariums Seafood Watch Program, an organization devoted to the conservation of our oceans and waterways.
Together, Patty and Paul have also invited Larry Collins, one of their favorite local fishermen, to share his experiences as well. Diners will have abundant opportunities to meet, ask questions, and chat with all our guests as we enjoy a specially prepared seafood dinner.
The dinner cost is $33 per person. We then include tax, gratuity, and a $5 donation to Slow Food San Francisco - so the final ticket cost becomes $48. Beverages and related tax and tip are extra. Ticket sales have been limited to 35 to allow all guests the opportunity to interact and hear comfortably.
Depending on the morning catch, our dinner will include many of the these seasonal offerings:
Dungeness crab, Drake's Estero oysters, Hog Island clams, Monterey Bay sardines, San Pedro calamari, Local ling cod, Bolinas black cod, and Half Moon Bay opah, supplemented by outstanding local produce from Mariquita and our farmers at the Ferry Plaza Farmers market. We will be serving family style so that guests may sample multiple dishes.
Due to the larger size of this Convivial Table gathering, tickets will be made available to the public following this initial offering to Slow Food members. Purchase now to insure your evening with Patricia Unterman, Paul Johnson, Larry Collins, and a feast of friends from Slow Food San Francisco.
