Sold-Out Reform Club Adds Second Preview Dinner

Posted By on Thu, Jul 14, 2011 at 9:30 AM

Reform Club SF Pop-Up Dinner

Where: Specchio, 2331 Mission (at 19th St.), 956-5528

When: Sun., July 31, seatings 6-10 p.m.

Cost: $40; add $25 for beverages

The rundown: Like many of life's finer ideas, this one was cooked up over late-night cocktails. Becky Pezzullo, formerly of Bar Bambino, finished many of her shifts chatting with Dion Jardine, bar manager at Heaven's Dog. Soon enough, plans were hatched, Jardine's friend Allyson Harvie (chef de cuisine at Citizen Cake) was brought on board, and a space was secured.

Specchio, typically closed on Sunday nights, is giving up its space once a week for San Francisco's newest pop-up supper club. A 75-seat preview was scheduled for this Sunday, but through little more than word of mouth, it quickly sold out. Luckily,another preview on July 31 has just been added.

Pezzullo says the meals are patterned after European multicourse suppers she's enjoyed in her travels. One big thing that sets this four-courser apart, though? Cocktails. Every one of Reform Club's four courses has an alcohol pairing, alternating between wine and mixed drinks. The menu details for July 31 are still being ironed out, but check out this Sunday's offerings for a flavor of what's to come.

Menu preview: The July 31 theme will be "urban picnic," with pork shoulder confit and a watermelon and heirloom tomato salad. The full menu will be posted on Reform Club's website and e-mailed out on Monday. Sign up here to get on the list.

  • 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.'"
