Laurine Wickett Popping Up Again at Coffee Bar

Left Coast Catering

When SFoodie interviewed Laurine Wickett shortly after news of her departure from Top Chef Las Vegas, the Left Coast Catering owner mentioned that she'd started doing occasional pop-ups at Coffee Bar in Potrero Hill, which hosts a number of occasional restaurants. She's back there this weekend with a relatively inexpensive three-course prix-fixe dinner called “A Rustic Romantic Feast.”

Wickett sticks to her classic Cal-Ital style for the entrees ― a choice between braised short ribs with parsnip mash and broccoli di ciccio or a mushroom torta served with squash purée ― but she shows off a little of that cooking-competition flash in the appetizer, a cauliflower soup with smoked potatoes and truffle oil. You have to make reservations beforehand, but Coffee Bar just told SFoodie there are still spaces available in all seatings.
