If you have a Visa Signature rewards card, Visa, the Golden Gate Restaurant Association, and almost 50 Bay Area restaurants have cooked up a little present for you: a nice little pamphlet of crab recipes, titled SF Chefs. Food. Wine.: Dungeness Crab. Inside you'll find recipes from A (Angel Hair Crab Lasagna, from Andrea Froncillo, executive chef/owner of Franciscan Crab Restaurant) to Z (well, W: Wok Roasted Ginger-Scallion Dungeness Crab, from George Chen, chef/owner of Shanghai 1930). The restaurants go from A (Acme Chophouse, with a recipe for crab salad with sunchoke chips and green herb dressing, from Traci des Jardins, managing chef, and Thom Fox, executive chef) to Z, too (well, W: Waterbar, with executive chef Parke Ulrich's decadent Dungeness crab gratin on roasted bone marrow glacage we enjoyed our ownself, the one time we ate there.).

We were especially intrigued by the recipes for Incanto's chef Chris Cosentino's Dungeness crab fregola with chilies and fennel, and chef Damon Hall of Momo's Dungeness crab and ham hash, with heavy cream, brussels sprouts, and poached eggs, yum.  

February is the height of the Dungeness season, and if you eat a meal at one of the participating restaurants during what they're calling Dungeness Crab Week (February 19 through March 1; the restaurants are listed here) and pay for it with your Visa Signature card, the enticing little cookbook is yours. For free (well, thrown in with whatever your meal set you back).

  • 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.'"
