UPDATE: Reservations now closed. Thanks!
But first, announcements. It feels great to be able to finally say this: we have a space! We're going to be working really hard over the coming months, and I can't wait to tell you more details (or any details, for that matter) about the new restaurant. Rest assured, dear reader, you will hear all you care to know about it when the time comes. I won't shut up about it. In the meantime, all I can say is that as OG members of the Lazy Bear mailing list, there may be certain... perks... to which you'll have access. In the meantime, you have at least a couple months left to come to one of the Lazy Bear pop-up dinners before they evolve into something new.
Staffing Up. We are on the hunt for most positions in the restaurant, and are staffing up now in anticipation. Most urgently, we are looking for a beverage director for our cocktail and wine program. We want someone whose vision matches ours for our food, with seasonal cocktails meticulously crafted with fresh and local ingredients, lots of housemade components, and all created with a wink. In addition, we'll be hiring another sous chef, cooks, servers, FOH managers, etc., and can take on many of those positions already. Email resumes and cover letters to email@example.com.
Dinners Next Week, Monday-Thursday. Reservations are now open for dinners Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, 03/10-13. As usual until the big switch, our dinners are BYOB. That means you can bring beer, wine, liquor, whatever you like, at no charge. A tentative menu is at right, much of which is inspired by the food my sous chef and I had in Montreal on last week's trip cooking in Montreal at Montreal en Lumiere. We ate a ton of awesome food. You can click the menu for a larger version that actually has semi-readable text.
The reservations are open via our usual annoying and confusing process (don't worry, it'll be changing soon) which you can read about on this page before submitting a request. Dinner will start at 7:30pm each night and will last around three hours. Price is $95 per person, plus tax and tip. Dinners are BYOB.
Submit a reservation request by clicking here and answering the questions carefully. Once you've submitted the form, you do not yet have a reservation! We'll keep the request period open from now through the DEADLINE TOMORROW (FRIDAY, 03/07) AT 5PM. At that time, requests will close, we'll quickly run the pseudorandom algorithm determining which requests get spots, and hopefully start offering reservations to parties by email tomorrow night. We will continue to offer reservations to parties on a rolling basis as they become available. Once we offer you a reservation you will only have a short time to confirm your reservation by purchasing tickets. So keep an eye out for a reservation offer email from us, and act quickly when you get it.
You won't hear from us unless and until you are being offered a reservation. But there are always cancellations, so even if you don't initially get in, we may contact you later on about open seats. Parties with an even number of guests have a significantly better chance of getting in initially, and a much better chance of getting in later when seats open up due to cancellations. Put our numbers in your phone! (415)662-3373, and (415)613-3373. Similarly, add firstname.lastname@example.org to your trusted senders list. And follow us on Twitter @lazybearsf because we sometimes post about last-minute cancellations.
