​Oops. In SF Weekly's 7-Day Dish e-newsletter, we described a benefit for leak-stricken Gulf fisherman: Mission restaurant Maverick would be setting aside proceeds May 20 for the Greater New Orleans Foundation's Gulf Coast oil spill fund. Turns out plans have changed, says Maverick's Scott Youkilis. The benefit's now tentatively slated for a date in early June, and looks to include more than just Maverick. Youkilis says he's started lining up buy-in by other S.F. restaurants; similar benefits will go down in Chicago, Washington D.C., Ann Arbor, Mich., and a handful of other cities. Youkilis says Maverick will probably offer either a portion of all proceeds that night, or all the proceeds on certain Gulf seafood items (flounder, shrimp). We'll key you in about details ― including other participating local eateries ― as they emerge.
