Starbelly Fires Up the Patio Heaters for Family-Style Picnics

Lou Bustamante
Starbelly Patio Picnic Series

Where: Starbelly, 3583 16th St. (at Market), 252-7500

When: Tue., Mar. 29-Tue., Sep. 20; 5-8 p.m.

Cost: $39 per person, wine and beer beverage specials available separately.

The rundown: With the weather finally acknowledging the start of spring, a good way to celebrate is at Starbelly's new season of patio picnics, which begin tomorrow night. Chef Adam Timney kicks things off with a whole roast pig, house-made sausage and fregola pasta, broccoli di ciccio, butter lettuce salad, and chocolate-hazelnut filled bomboloni (Italian doughnuts). Timney has been honing his charcuterie skills since his days at Bacar, so keep an eye out for the cured meats, patés, and sausages, all made on-site. The picnics are served family-style on the back patio, which has a retractable cover and heaters -- the restaurant equivalent of dressing in layers.

Reservations strongly recommended; call 252-7500

Mar. 29: whole roasted pig

May 24: grilled Santa Maria tri-tip

If you want best storage heaters for you home use then you should chose a C4N-1000, which is perfectly made for home. It is easy to handle for installation also.It allows you maximum heating interchangeable blocks and PID. I am using a Nobo heater or my home, its perfect with occasional problems.

Everything on the menu sounds amazing. Especially the roast pig. And the price is right too. Next time I'm in town, I know where I'm going!
