Wednesday: A Special Hillside Supper for Fans of Fungi


Chef (and glamorous Bernal neighbor) Tony Ferrari from the Hillside Supper Club on Precita Park is spreading the word about a special dinner series he’s hosting at the restaurant, with the next installment happening tomorrow, on Wednesday, June 15:

So every third Wednesday of the month, we;ve started doing producer dinners. Its 68 dollars for a set four course meal, with optional wine pairing at 39. Every course will be highlighted and include the product from the producer.

We did the first one last month, with a duck dinner with Liberty Farms. The producers are always part of each dinner, walking around meeting people and talking about the product etc. Its fun to meet them and for us to play around with different ingredients and menu changes. Its been going great and turns into a fun time.

Next, on Wednesday, June 15th, we’ll have a mushroom dinner with King of Mushrooms.

King of Mushrooms is a huge supplier for us, as mushrooms are almost always on on of our items at Hillside. Todd Spanier founded King of Mushrooms in 1996, and has been providing the entire Bay area with some of the best supply of mushrooms since. We will be serving a four course tasting (with an obvious highlight on ‘mushrooms’), plus an optional beverage pairing.

Reservations are normal though Open Table or call-in. Next month, on July 20, we’ll have a wine dinner with Bro Cellars

Hillside Supper Club has been going on for three and half years now. Things have been great, and we love our ‘hood!
