Mason-Pacific Preview Bistro w/ Chef Max Mackinnon

Thursday & Friday (6/16-6/17), 6-close

Mason-Pacific is a little neighborhood place perched up on Russian Hill. The honest food and deep list of Burgundy has made it an infamous late night hangout for the entire San Francisco wine industry. Back in February, they recruited Max from Burlington, Vermont, where he earned a James Beard Award for Best New Restaurant while running the kitchen at Pistou. But before Max could get started, there was a fire in the kitchen, and Max has been plotting menus for their July re-opening ever since. Lucky for us, Max digs natty wine, and asked if he could try out some ideas at a pop-up bistro. He will be cooking this Thursday and Friday. Change your plans and join us. Below is the menu: Chicken Liver   $10 onion, raspberry Carrots   $11 mussel, curry, basil Endive   $9 walnut, sourdough, caesar Beef Tartare   $15 scallion, mustard, egg yolk Poached Trout   $21 cabbage, horseradish Braised Lamb   $23 eggplant, onion
