Gird your belt buckles. SF Chefs is coming this month.
The city's largest food, wine and spirits event, SF Chefs takes over the city (and most certainly Union Square) for a weeklong party of eating, drinking, dancing and cozying up to your favorite chefs. Have mercy.
This year's events range from a dinner on the modern American picnic to an Epic Roasthouse pig roast to a clandestine Q&A with the San Francisco Chronicle's famous food writer Michael Bauer. (Concealed behind a screen, no less.)
And then there's the grand tasting.
Dozens of San Francisco chefs (Emily Luchetti, Chris Cosentino, Tyler Florence, Jennifer Biesty, Thomas McNaighton, Ryan Scott and Craig Stoll to name a few) come together for a multi-day feast in the middle of Union Square.
And after dinner, there's always the smorgasbord of late-night afterparties with enough sweets and booze to make Monday's Alka Seltzer diet worth every moment. (Will Hubert Keller ditch the toque for the turntables? Outlook good.)
