Dine + Discover, a Benefit for SPUR

4:00 a.m. | Thursday, May 2, 2013


Thank you to everyone who joined us this year in support of SPUR, and in celebration of urban life. It was a spectacular evening of great food, music and fun. We hope you'll join us again next year! 


This year we brought Dine + Discover to the Dogpatch district, home of San Francisco’s industrial revival and the community nurturing the new economy of the Eastern Waterfront. Guests gathered at Dogpatch WineWorks, San Francisco’s only winery collective, to sample cuisine from some of the city’s best restaurants and taste a variety of wines produced in house.

2013 Chefs

Learn more about Serpentine >>

Tucked in a corner of a brick warehouse in the heart of Dogpatch, Serpentine features an ever-changing menu shaped by local farms and ranches. Soaring ceilings are warmed by cozy booths and tasty twists on classic cocktails. Glimpses of Serpentine’s sister restaurant, Slow Club, shine through in the fresh lunch and dinner menus, the intimate bar and the candlelit dining room.


Learn more about Radio Africa & Kitchen >>

Radio Africa & Kitchen was created by Chef Eskender Aseged. The name comes from Eskender’s experience growing up in Ethiopia with very few outlets for popular music and sports. Only one household per neighborhood might have a radio, and kids would gather to listen to soccer matches and music, sharing laughter, conversation and snacks. Radio Africa prides itself on serving a menu that is seasonal and nutritionally well balanced.


Learn more about Stag Dining Group >>

Stag Dining Group aims to provide a sophisticated dining experience that incorporates their passion for creativity, sustainability, eclecticism and joie de vivre. The group includes chefs Ted Fleury and Jordan Grosser, who both currently serve as co-executive chefs at Alembic and together have worked in some of the most prestigious kitchens in California.
