If you are in North Beach go check out the new mexican street food place Don Pistos at 510 Union st. at Grant. Go in and say hey to Pete. He is doing some really fresh and flavorful  food in a beautiful space. He just opened a few weeks ago and iam totally addicted. Great Place. Just what North Beach needed.
I went and had lunch at Barbacco today. Chef Staffan and Chef Sarah are a blessing to the food landscape of our fair city!. Great menu filled with delicious food. The interior is beautiful as well.

Butchery & Belgian Bier

Ok, so here is a rough outline of the event Iam doing August 23rd.

We will have a set menu of goat dishes, each paired with a belgian bier. Doors will be at 5pm with dinner at 6pm. I will also be breaking down a whole goat so you can ask questions about different cuts or the how and why of butchering. We will be raffling off the cuts of goat that i break down along with belgian biers.

I think we gonna try and keep it at 60 people max so get tix early. Tix will be avaiable at the events page at www.latrappecafe.com. We will hopefully have the page set by this week. If you don’t like pay pal and want a ticket,or have any questions, you can email me at dave@davethebutcher.com. Put butchery and belgian bier in the subject. We can work something out for you.

This going to a fun event. LaTrappe is an amazing spot in North Beach. We will be in the cellar bar which used to be a speak easy in the day.
I will post more by the end of the week when i get all the loose ends tied up. Hope to see you all there.

Cheers, Dave.
