Mission cocktail bar Trick Dog has announced a new executive chef, Michael Logan (formerly of the Battery, Delfina Restaurant Group, and Slanted Door Group). As Logan gets up to speed, the bar has announced it will host a series of pop-ups. The first will feature Chris Kronner, last seen in San Francisco at the short-lived but wonderful Kronnerburger -- and though he has been a BART ride away in Oakland since Kronnerburger closed last November, now you can find him back in the Mission for a few days.
Kronner won't be serving his famous burger, but will be focusing on an a la carte menu called Ordinary Trick, a so-called "bistronomic odyssey" inspired by classic French bistro fare (items $10-$20). The food will be paired with Trick Dog cocktails and wines chosen by Bradford Taylor (of Oakland's Ordinaire). Find Kronner's menu this Sun-Tue (June 29-July 1) from 6 p.m.-1 a.m., and no reservations will be taken.
As for the Trick Dog menu, we do have word that menu mainstays like the excellent kale salad, Trick Dog burger, and thrice-cooked fries will remain.
