For nostalgia hunters: On November 7 at Foreign Cinema, Chef Jeremiah Tower is set to re-create a menu he served in the fall of 1989 at his fabled (and long defunct) Stars. Call 415-648-7600 to reserve.
For Napa-philes: At Napa’s annual five-day celebration of food and wine, Flavor! Napa Valley (November 20–24), you can attend an interactive lunch with Todd English or spend a morning with chefs at an apiary, among many other activities. Tickets are available at flavornapavalley.com.
For chef groupies: A killer lineup of five guest chefs—Brett Cooper (Outerlands), Brandon Jew (a forthcoming as-yet-unnamed Chinese restaurant), Mourad Lahlou (Aziza), Evan Rich (Rich Table), and Bill Corbett (Absinthe)—will join Bourbon Steak executive chef Omri Aflalo on November 19 to cook a special surf and turf–themed dinner.
