Heart's $15 Spaghetti Sundays Serve Up a Whiff of Jersey

When we think of Heart, the self-proclaimed "rebellious" and "chaotic" Mission District wine bar, we think of small plates of twice-cooked Marin Sun Farms lamb or parchment-baked halibut accompanied by a glass ― well, a jar ― of 2008 Pinon Vouvray Brut Non-Dosé.

Sunday nights just got a whole lot calmer, though, more like eating at your Italian-American mom's dinner table in New Jersey. At Heart's new Spaghetti Sundays, $15 buys a rather uncomplicated meal of salad, garlic bread, and a bowl of spaghetti. To ensure that things don't become too simple, resident eats provider Kitchenette offers a choice of spaghettis: one featuring tomatoes, onions, and pancetta and a vegetarian option that will rotate as seasonal produce dictates. Carbophobes in your party can order something else ― most of Kitchenette's usual menu is also available.

Wash it all down with a jar of Chianti Classico from Casina di Cornia for $10. Have no fear: The wine is organic. After all, this is still Heart, and you're definitely not in New Jersey.

Heart: 1270 Valencia (between 23rd and 24th), 285-1200; weekly Spaghetti Sundays are 5-10 p.m., reservations not accepted

  • 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.'"
