Orange & Black Attack in Honor of the SF Giants and Halloween

Do you think of the SF Giants when you look at this risotto dish? You should! (Photo courtesy of Prospect restaurant)

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.

    Those pumpkin cupcakes are sooo cute! I love that these are for Halloween, but I live in Michigan, so I’m a Tigers fan. I hope to move to California soon, though, so that may change :)

    I love uni, and that dish looks perfect for a game time dinner. (Just wished Prospect had a TV to watch in the dining room! LOL) And those pumpkin cupcakes are sooo beautiful. I’d never seen a cupcake created with fondant like that. Kind of Giants like as well as Halloween! ;-)

    Dunno which one is more tempting, the cupcake or the risotto! If only you can deliver them to me here. ;)

    Congrats to the Giants! They beat my Cards soundly, so they very much deserve to go to the World’s Series. I’ll be rooting for them!
