More restaurants than a food court. More wine than a no-host bar at a celebrity wedding. That's right, year three of DISH
, SF Weekly
's annual dining event, is coming to the Metreon two weeks from today. And for the next week, SFoodie readers can get $10-$20 off the ticket price.
DISH takes over the entire fourth floor of the building, where more than 30 restaurants and sweets makers ― including Hard Knox Cafe
, Lark Creek Steak
, and Sandbox Bakery
― will offer tastes of their food. In addition, 10 local wineries will be pouring, and beer and spirits will be on hand as well.
A general-admission ticket, available online, will get you full access to the food fest. VIP ticket holders will get into special food and wine tastings and receive a take-home gift bag. Part of the proceeds from DISH go to Streetsmart 4 Kids
, a nonprofit that channels money raised by restaurants to local programs serving homeless youth.
Participating Restaurants (partial list):
Hard Knox Cafe
Lark Creek Steak
Papalote Mexican Grill
Pica Pica Maize Kitchen
Queens Louisiana Cafe
Bridge Brands Chocolates
To receive a $10 off the presale general admission price ― in other words, $30 ― buy your tickets online and type SFOODIE into the "Discount Code" line. If you're purchasing VIP admission, use the discount code SFOODIEVIP and receive $20 off.
