Plum Preview Dinners: Monday Nights at Il Cane Rosso (San Francisco)

Melanie Wong | Aug 10, 201011:00 PM     16

Two weeks ago, Chef Jeremy Fox announced that he would be staging a series of Monday night dinners in August to preview dishes he was developing for the soon-to-open Plum. More info in this thread: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/7102...

One of my friends attended the first one on 8/2 and forwarded this four-course, $45 menu.

Summer chips flavored with seaweed and miso, young potato and cucumber with anchovy, preserved lemon, olive crisp
Forno beets baked in vegetable embers, wild fennel salsa verde
Shellfish with jambalaya flavors, pressed pig, okra caviar, coffee, toasted brown rice
Roasted white chocolate with raspberry and cocoa nib

She made a reservation on the spot to return the next week
.
Then yesterday, I woke up to a friend’s blog early morning post breaking the news that Jeremy Fox had departed and Daniel Patterson would be taking over the menu for now.

A few hours later, the Chron confirmed the story and Plum announced this menu for 8/9:

PLUM PREVIEW DINNER 4 courses $45 per person (5:30-9 pm)

Chickpea fritters, sheep’s milk cheese, wild fennel
Melon & cucumber, almond-yogurt, red shiso & nasturtium
Chilled eggplant soup, fresh pole and shelling beans, preserved lemon, cilantro
Slow-cooked egg, savory chicken-giblet fried farro, sprouts
Milk chocolate parfait, basil meringue, pistachio

Now that Fox is out, I’m starting this new thread for “ricegeek” and others who’ve tried the Plum practice dinners to report back.
