Kitchenette to Star at Mission Street Food
One of the biggest food stories in a year destined to be remembered for depressing restaurant closures is Kitchenette, which (in case you just blew in from Fresno) serves up amazing weekday lunches from a loading dock in Dogpatch. Brace yourselves, groupies: On Thursday, June 11, the Kitchenette team invades Mission Street Food, the twice-weekly restaurant phenom that was one of SF's biggest food stories of last year.
Say adios to the loading dock, at least for one night
Kitchenette (and LRE Catering) chef and partner Douglas Monsalud told SFoodie the evening will feature a "colony concept" - foods originally from Spain, as interpreted in its various former colonies: Mexico, Argentina, even the Philippines. "It's not going to be a normal street-food menu," Monsalud said. "We do that kind of thing every day." Also behind the stoves that night: Kitchenette chef de cuisine Brian Dudley, formerly of Foreign Cinema. By the way, though this'll mark his first appearance at MSF, Monsalud goes way back with founder Anthony Myint: He once catered his wedding. Keep watching the MSF Web site for info.
Meanwhile, Kitchenette's popularity continues to be fierce. Monsalud reported that the loading dock got so swamped today, crowds cleaned them out by 12:45. Dayum!
