Best Way to Ring In 2570? Zare at Fly Trap's Nowrouz Dinners

Posted By on Thu, Mar 17, 2011 at 4:21 PM


Persian New Year at Zaré at Fly Trap

Where: Zaré at Fly Trap, 606 Folsom (at Second St.), 243-0580

When: Sun.-Tues., Mar. 20-22, 6:30 p.m.

Cost: $85; $35 for optional wine pairing

The rundown: Between St. Patty's Day and Purim, we hope you didn't forget that Persian New Year is right around the corner. That's right, Nowrouz (aka Norooz or Nowruz) coincides with the arrival of spring, and Zaré at Fly Trap is unrolling its annual upscale dinners to help you celebrate the arrival of year 2570. Owner/chef Hoss Zaré has prepared an elaborate multicourse menu to help you usher in the new light of the vernal equinox. Of course if you prefer to celebrate with "banging house music," then you have options, but Zaré has the subdued musical stylings of Farzad to help you digest a veritable Persian feast. You know where we'll be.

Menu highlights: Ash anar (pomegranate soup with french lentils and duck meatballs); mirza ghasami (stuffed zucchini with elephant garlic, tomato, and quail egg); abgusht (lamb with potato, garbanzo, tomato, and a roasted garlic-preserved lime broth); baklava with Persian cream, salt, rose preserves, and pistachios

  • 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.'"
