Feasting Out: Kitchen Alums Return for Laïola's Four-Night Farewell Blowout

Laïola is not exactly going gentle into that good night of restaurant history. Before the Marina tapas bar morphs into Tacolicious early next year, owner Joe Hargrave is mounting a four-night farewell that'll see the return of kitchen alums.

Opening chef Mark Denham, who left a year ago, will be back Dec. 28-31, along with cooks who've scattered to Spruce, Bar Tartine, and Commis. Menu offerings Dec. 28-30 will include things like chickpeas with housemade blood sausage, an esquiexada of local hamachi, plancha-cooked petrale with winter greens and crispy trotters, and roasted Napa Valley lamb.

New Year's Eve is a four-course, $75 prix fixe described as a cooks' collaboration with, Hargrave digging deep into Laïola's Spanish cellar. Make reservations for any of the four nights here.
