Spring Equinox Pop-Up Dinner

Where: Outerlands, 4001 Judah (at 45th Ave.), 661-6140

When: Mon., Mar. 21, 6 and 9 p.m.

Cost: $60, cash only

The rundown: When does spring start around here? Hard to say, when 70° days in February give way to 40° ones in March, and street trees in full-on pink flower are stripped bare by pinging hailstorms. One undeniable measure is the spring equinox, which rolls around on Mar. 21 whatever the weather happens to be. Another vernal threshold: spring menus, like the beautiful one Cooking with Leif's Leif Hedendal has planned for his vegetarian pop-up at Outerlands the night the season turns.

Menu highlights: Dave's levain toasts with Bellwether sheeps'-milk ricotta and black trumpet mushrooms; soup of Knoll green garlic, English peas, stinging nettle, dulse, sencha, and matsutake dashi; Little City Gardens magic mesclun with icicle radishes, blood orange, and argan; rhubarb-fennel galette with honey, lemon thyme, and crème fraiche

RSVP to with seating preference and number of guests
