Outside Lands Food Lineup Announced: AQ, Chino, Curry Up Now Join Festival, No More Whole Beast Lamb Poutine

Posted By on Thu, May 29, 2014 at 10:40 AM


The giant food extravaganza (with some music thrown in) that is Outside Lands has finally announced its 2014 Taste of the Bay Area lineup, and we can't wait to get into the festival and start eating.

New restaurants in the lineup include AQ (serving highbrow spaghetti and sloppy Joe's), TBD (pickles, deviled eggs, grilled lemonade), Proposition Chicken (fried, grilled, or fake chicken sandwiches), the Beast and the Hare (lamb and shrimp mixed grill with romesco sauce), Chino (egg rolls and dan dan noodles), Curry Up Now (deconstructed samosas and kathi rolls), and Glaze Teriyaki (teriyaki bowls and gyoza).

Other favorites will be back, including 4505 and its best damn cheeseburger, Rich Table and its dried porcini doughnuts, Il Cane Rosso with its life-saving breakfast sandwiches, Farmerbrown's Little Skillet with fried chicken and waffles, Bacon Bacon with porky fries, and Homeroom's garlic mac and cheese.

Beer and Wine Lands will continue to fuel the partying hordes with high-quality local brews and wines, and Cheese Lands is back for a second year, and will now have its own bar where artisanal producers can highlight their cheeses for the public. Choco Lands, too, is coming back.

The only missing presence is Outside Lambs, which is a tragedy. The Whole Beast's Lamb Poutine is one of the best things we ate last year, festival or not. Looks like we'll have to find a new favorite. Which should be too hard, considering the complete lineup...

  • 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.'"
