After almost exactly five years, the reservations that are now open are the second-to-last set of Lazy Bear underground dinners ever.
Not to worry: because so many people have been trying to get in to our underground dinners for so long, here's what we are doing: for the time being, we are going to open with the exact same format we've been doing: tasting menu only, seated communally, just forty diners per seating, with cooks coming out and describing every dish. We aren't sure how long we'll keep this format. Maybe only a month, maybe a few months, maybe six. But we'll be open at least five days a week, so we're hoping we'll be able to get more of you guys in. And there are going to be some perks of being on the mailing list. So stick around. You'll be glad you did.
And we are now hiring for ALL positions. Beverage Director/Sommelier/Head Bartender, FOH Manager, Servers, Line Cooks, Prep Cooks, Dishwashers... Email firstname.lastname@example.org with a resume and cover letter if you are interested in any of those positions. It's going to be incredible.
Also mark your calendars for the last last set of underground dinners, in two weeks, August 11, 12, 13. And in case you didn't see it, The SF Chronicle profiled Lazy Bear as the feature article in the first ever issue of its new Food + Home section.
Right now we are accepting reservations for the following four dates, with two seatings on the Friday. We are not posting a menu this time. It'll be a mix of some of our favorite past Lazy Bear dishes (for which we'll be repeating past dishes for the first time ever), and some previews of the menu we'll be serving at the new place. Please note that the deadline for submitting a request is Sunday (tomorrow) at 3pm:
- Wednesday, July 30, 7:30pm
- Thursday, July 31, 7:30pm
- Friday, August 1, 6:00pm SHARP
- Friday, August 1, 8:45pm (done by 11:15pm, but you're welcome to stick around)
- Monday, August 4, 7:30pm
Until we move to the new space, dinners are BYOB. That means you can bring beer, wine, liquor, anything you like, at no charge. The reservations for these dates are currently open via our usual (but temporary) process which you can read about on this page before submitting a request. Dinner will last around 2.5 hours each night. Price is $110 per person, plus tax and tip.
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, Sunday (07/27) at 3pm. At that time, requests will close, we'll quickly run the pseudorandom algorithm determining which requests get spots, and start offering reservations to parties by email that 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 email@example.com to your trusted senders list. And follow us on Twitter @lazybearsf because we sometimes post about last-minute cancellations.
