In honor of the pioneering San Francisco chef Judy Rodgers, who died this week, Russet (1521 Spruce St.) will offer a four course, $35 menu inspired by her on Friday, Dec. 6.
Russet chefs/owners Andrew and Kristin Wood dined at Rodgers' Zuni Café during their tenure in San Francisco, and take her influential dry-brining technique into account when cooking at Russet.
House-cured coppa; pickled celery root salad
Savory onion tart; heirloom apple, bacon, farm egg
Beef and onion gratin; tomato, crispy potato
Apricot plum crostata; gewürztraminer sabayon
