Upper Haight's Alembic
(1725 Haight at Cole) is serving notice that it's now offering lunch seven days a week by handing out free pulled pork sliders today, starting at noon. The new lunch program kicked off yesterday, actually; proprietor and brewmaster Dave McLean painted today's giveaway as a sort of bubbling over of enthusiasm. "We're just really excited about our lunch program, and we're hoping the neighborhood, especially, knows we're here and adds us to their lunch rotation," McLean told SFoodie. The free sliders come two to an order, and you don't even have to actually buy anything to get them. Alembic' lunch menu (previously offered weekends only) is available from noon to 5 p.m. daily. McLean sounds pretty confident that the giveaway should last till 3 p.m. today, but there are no guarantees.
Alembic's lunch mains include the pulled pork sliders (with smoked Coke barbecue sauce ― they're replacing the pork belly sliders on the dinner menu, too), a beer-battered rockfish sandwich, mushroom "meatball" banh mi, and slow-poached egg with bacon marmalade.
