Jake Godby Guest Chef Night at Baker and Banker

Where:Baker and Banker, 1701 Octavia (at Bush), 351-2500

When: Wed., July 20

Cost: $65 (when you mention SF Weekly)

The rundown: If you're like us, and you spend way too much time immersed in the minutiae of San Francisco's chef elite, you know that Humphry Slocombe flavormaster Jake Godby spent time cooking savory before he went sweet at restaurants including Boulevard, Zuni, Fifth Floor, and Coi.

Wednesday night, you have a rare chance to sample his regular food as Baker and Banker kicks off its series of guest chef dinners (stay tuned for upcoming evenings with Thomas McNaughton of Flour and Water and Ryan Farr from 4505 Meats). The five-course tasting menu would normally run you $75 but the restaurant is offering $10 off to SFoodie readers. That's not taco truck money but hey, when's the next time you'll try Godby's sweetbreads?

Menu highlights: Parmesan gnocchi (roasted sweet 100 tomatoes, corn, pea shoots, and parmesan cream); tuna and chicken fried sweetbreads (upside-down cornbread, picked green beans, and buttermilk dressing); honey-wort pie (peaches and yoghurt ice cream)

Make reservations at OpenTable. Mention SF Weekly in the notes section to get your $10 discount.

  • 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.'"
