CALIFORNIA CARRIBEAN IN ALAMO SQUARE

Emilio from San Francisco :

"The voyage starts with tropical sounds, a sultry cocktail, followed by a menu seasoned by the “Spice Trail” cuisines of The Caribbean; where African, Spanish, Taíno, and Middle Eastern (Jewish & Arabic) flavors come together to make up traditional, Dominican, dishes. It ends with a creamy rum-dessert and stories.It's a curated evening of specialty drinks, foods, decor, music and conversations.

I'm back to hosting dinner parties in SF, after being in NYC (to finish my first book). I t is no coincidence that my last name, Mesa, translates to “table.” I was born to be a host. I am hospitality professional with 15+ years in hotel openings, catering management, and special events. My specialties include planning, business/concept development, decor, cooking for dinner/cocktail parties, and creating specialty cocktails. I am also a writer. My articles, essays, and profiles appear in The New York Times, NY Press, SF Weekly, Interview, OUT, Four Two Nine, The Huffington Post-among others. Why are sit-down dinners so powerful? The underlying main ingredient is the community aspect. Every guest is a surprise. It tears down people’s perceptions of borders, allowing them to meet and “break bread” with different nationalities, races, genders, and socioeconomic backgrounds. The best way to make lasting memories, in a new city, is through a dinner party. *C/O my Instagram for pics of my food, events and life: emilliom1 **Please let me know if you have any food allergy/restrictions. **I only cook with fresh/seasonal ingredients."

FISHMONGER'S FRESH CATCHES

Don from San Francisco :

"I'm a fishmonger and home cook specializing in local seafood cuisine. Working as a fishmonger at the Santa Cruz Harbor and Bay Area Farmers Markets ignited my passion for working with fresh, seasonal and sustainable ingredients. I pull my inspiration from regional seafood dishes including bright and spicy Baja Fish tacos, warm clam chowders and delicate sushi. I have an extensive knowledge of locally harvested seafood and sustainable fishing practices. The ingredients within each dish come from a diverse community of sustainable fisherman, farmers, and artisan food purveyors. I am a person of the sea. Surfing and fishing California waters my entire life has forged my respect for ocean wildlife and strictly guides my decisions about what seafood is sensible to put on your plate.

I work hard to ensure the seafood species I serve is bountiful and capable of replenishing and the methods used to catch or harvest the seafood respects our ocean ecosystem. I would love to address any seafood questions and concerns you have about what it means to be a sustainable seafood provider and consumer. You’ll leave my dinner guilt free and full bellied with only the best hand selected seafood.

A menu consisting of the freshest, local, sustainable, traceable, catches hand selected by me. The menu will vary depending on what comes in. This dinner will always start with oysters. This dinner is BYOB (bring your own beverage) or you can order drinks at the dining room bar. There is a $10 corkage fee for wines brought I recommend Sauvignon Blancs, Chardonnays, Pinot Grigios, Pinot Noirs, and light beers to pair with this meal. Please make sure to note your dietary restrictions when checking out!"
