Prospect’s Ode to the SF Giants
In honor of the San Francisco Giants’ winning streak, Prospect restaurant in San Francisco has created a new dish that sports the team’s trademark colors.
Black risotto with uni and a gently poached egg is a most appropriate dish to celebrate this classy baseball team’s triumphs, don’t you think?
The $16 dish is not on the regular menu. Those in the know just need ask for it.
Chef Pam Mazzola plans to make it available as long as the Giants keep winning or fresh sea urchin is available.
Sift Cupcake’s Sweet Salute to the Team
Starting today, Sift Cupcake + Dessert Bar in San Francisco, will be baking up the “Humm Baby” in honor of the Giants.
The chocolate cupcake topped with orange buttercream and a festive streamer decoration will be available through the end of the World Series for $3.25 each.
S&P Brasserie Offers Up a Toast
Through the World Series, S&P Brasserie in the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in San Francisco, will be shaking up a special cocktail in honor of the Giants.
The gin and tonic refresher ($16) is made with Rusty Blade Gin, Sensei saffron tonic water, a lemon twist and a burnt orange peel.
Enjoy a buttermilk fried chicken slider with persimmons and coquillos olives (for the requisite orange and black) alongside for $14.
