San Francisco’s Quince Restaurant Moves to the Hedge Gallery for the curATE Dinner Series

While San Francisco’s Quince is temporarily closed for renovations this summer, the Michelin two-star restaurant will move to the city’s Hedge Gallery for a five-week pop-up dinner series. Uniting the visual and culinary arts, curATE will transform the Jackson Square gallery into a dining room cum art exhibition from July 30 through August 30. The dinner series will merge the locally sourced Northern California cuisine of chef Michael Tusk with diverse artwork from some of the city’s most acclaimed curators, including Iwona Tenzing, Anthony Meier, and Jessica Silverman.

CurATE’s five exhibitions will include prominent local gallery owner Anthony Meier’s painting and sculpture collection Deconstruction, which will be accompanied by a menu of deconstructed culinary classics including Waldorf salad, spaghetti and meatballs, and peach Melba. The following weeks will feature similarly diverse art installations complemented by thematic menus with dishes like white gazpacho with spot prawn, almond, and cucumber; carrot bisque with Madras curry, yogurt, and Tibetan flatbread; and Koshihikari rice with ginger, lime leaf, and passion fruit.

Entry to the reception and gallery viewings from 6:30 to 7:30 pm is priced at $50, while seating for dinner at 7:30 pm costs $199 per person (including access to the reception and gallery). Optional wine pairings are available for an additional $110 per person. Tickets are limited and are now available for purchase. (www.sfcurate.com)
