Governor Comes to San Francisco

Where: Secret San Francisco location disclosed upon purchase

When: Mon., Dec. 10, 7 p.m.

Cost: $150 (purchase in advance via Kitchit)

The rundown: Governor is an acclaimed restaurant in Brooklyn's DUMBO neighborhood. It's currently closed while trying to rebuild from extensive damage from Sandy, and proceeds from tonight's pop-up dinner will help with that effort. The location hasn't been revealed, but it will be in the Mission. Highlights from the menu, which includes wine pairings, are dishes like caviar with crispy sunchoke crumble and brown butter ice cream, 36-hour braised and lacquered Wagyu beef tongue with cabbage melted in buttermilk whey, and lightly fermented turnips with poached oysters and whipped country ham Hollandaise.

Truck Stop Cafe

Where: Truck, 1900 Folsom (at 15th St.), 255-0306

When: Wed., Dec. 12, 6-10 p.m.

Cost: $5-15 (menu items available à la carte)

The rundown: Pop-Up Planner regular Truck Stop Cafe is getting into the Hanukkah spirit in its own oddball way this week with a special dedicated to the last meal request of convicted killer Ethel Greenglass Rosenberg, who ate nothing before she was executed in 1953. She was respecting the Jewish Sabbath, but Truck Stop cook Jake Godby has made a bountiful holiday meal of brisket, kugel, horseradish cream, borscht, and apple jelly donuts with manchego cheese in her memory. Other new dishes this time around include cornmeal pancakes with sweet potato and shiitake cream and crab bisque with pumpkin and curry.

Sous Beurre Kitchen's Last Supper at Sugarlump

Where: Sugarlump, 2862 24th St. (at Bryant), 826-5867

When: Fri., Dec. 14, seatings available from 5:30-10 p.m.

Cost: $45 (purchase in advance via Kitchit)

The rundown: Sous Beurre Kitchen concludes its long and successful 17-month run of pop-ups at Sugarlump this week with a special finale before chef Michael Mauschbaugh opens his permanent restaurant next year. This family-style prix fixe includes fare such as fondue with levain croutons, fondant potatoes, broccolini, cauliflower, and cherry tomatoes and Pacific Coast bouillabaisse with Dungeness crab, rock cod, shrimp, clams, mussels, and house-made pork sausage.

  • 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.'"
