Thermidor's NYE Retro Glamour Menu

Where: Thermidor, 8 Mint Plaza (at Fifth St.), 896-6500

Cost: First seating (6, 6:30, or 7 p.m.), $85 for four courses; second seating (8:30, 9, or 9:30 p.m.), $95 for four courses plus Champagne toast

Why it's likely to be special: New Year's Eve is a moment completely enthralled with nostalgia (see: "Auld Lang Syne"; weepy drunk people in party hats), and there's no better place for that than Thermidor, Neil Jorgensen and Bruce Binn's tribute to cooking from a time long before Julia ever heard of Julie

Menu highlights: goat cheese and pear Napoleon; sweetbreads, pork belly pruneaux; Liberty Farms duck à l'orange; butter-poached Maine lobster tail; chocolate parfait with Valrhona ganache

Reservations: Via OpenTable

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
