Spruce Marks Two Years with a Double-icious Dinner
Anyone who follows the restaurant business in this town knows that thriving for two years (hell, even surviving) is no small feat, especially for a fine-dining establishment. To celebrate its second birthday, New American spot Spruce (3640 Sacramento at Spruce) is throwing a special dinner this Sunday. Chef Mark Sullivan's Celebration Menu rings true to the Spruce mantra of local, local, local. Its three courses focus on local farmers and their products, with each course getting the "two-way" treatment.
Christine C./Yelp So big already?
First: Dirty Girl heirloom tomatoes, prepared in a tomato salad with Gioia burrata and rice-wine vinaigrette and in a gazpacho. Next: Grimaud Farms guinea hen, the breast wrapped in Hobbs applewood-smoked bacon, and the leg prepared confit style with summer vegetables and jus. Dessert: Hamada Farms two stone-fruits crostata with vanilla bean ice cream. Word has it that there'll also be a special birthday surprise.
It's happening Sunday, August 2, $55 per person, plus $20 for wine pairings. Spruce's regular menu will also be available. Call 351-1212.
