Family Meal in San Francisco

On Monday, March 20th Zuni will be hosting a benefit dinner with our friends Bon Appétit Magazine.  All funds raised will be donated to Centro Legal de la Raza.

Join BA for our fundraising event series, “Family Meal” where we take over a chef’s restaurant for a one-night-only party that gives diners unprecedented access to an integral back-of-house ritual: family meal. Each night, before customers arrive, a restaurant’s staff shares a meal and discusses the night ahead. Family meal is the food that cooks serve each other—imaginative, simple dishes (maybe lasagna, or tacos, or jerk chicken)—that diners never get to eat. For BA’s “Family Meal,” we’ll completely take over the restaurant to share these off-the-menu dishes.
