Tuesday’s at Anthology feature chef Eric Bauer doing his own riff on American classic foods such as mac and cheese with braised pork and pale ale seafood and chorizo chowder. The pocketbook friendly “fresh vibe” menu changes every week to complement the house band’s music.
Downtown restaurant watchers will be happy to note that Bice, will open late October. It is the latest location for the worldwide restaurant group that began 70 plus years ago as a small neighborhood eatery in Milan. The Northern Italian menu–well-known in New York, Orlando and Los Angeles (Cafe Med on Sunset)–will feature local ingredients.
Point Loma will soon have a wine bar in the hood, half a block from Roseville, Pomodoro and Old Venice. Look for the Wine Pub to open in the next couple of months. Details soon.
October marks the 14th annual Chefs Celebration series of dinners to benefit scholarships for culinary students. Every Tuesday in October, including one in September (29), you can eat five course meals created by five chefs (each week a different venue and chefs) for just $65 ($35 goes to the scholarship fund). Pamplemousse hosts the September meal with guest chefs Jason Kniebb (Nine-Ten), Jeff Thurston (Prado) and Jim Phillips (Barona). On October 6, Terra hosts Norma Martinez (El Vitral), Katie Grebow (Cafe Chloe), Danny Bannister (Red Marlin) and Amy DiBiase (Roseville). Good dinners for a good cause.
