Special Dinner Menu for Cinco de Mayo

mole plate

This menu sprang to life after our amazing intern Gillian Caballero Chase came to me and asked if we could cook a fun, delicious meal for Cinco de Mayo. Gillian is a student in the Culinary Arts and Hospitality program at City College here in San Francisco, and chose the Bi-Rite Family of Businesses as the location for her internship. Her mole negro was inspired by a culinary study abroad program last summer to Oaxaca, Mexico and it’s at the heart of a new grab-and-go dinner entree she’s been working on for our Markets. PeppersHaving been exposed to many amazing examples of mole from my time at La Cocina in the Mission District, I’m a tough critic, but it turns out that Gillian’s mole is the real deal. With its deep, dark, smoky and fruity tones, mole negro, or mole poblano, Gillian’s is so good that we have made it the star of the show for our Cinco de Mayo menu.

Gillian’s mole will soon be available as a pre-made entree.

To complement the mole, we have paired it up with dishes like ceviche, a crisp, crunchy jicama salad, rancho gordo beans, tomatillo-braised pork sopes, and lamb albondigas braised in a sweet, earthy apricot chile mulato sauce. We look forward to sharing this special menu with our many wonderful guests this Monday, May 5th. Buen Provecho!

Salty Ginger Sundae, Divis contest winner!

We’ve spent about three years working towards this moment, so today is all about celebrating the long, winding path that brought us here. And what better way to do so than by treating ourselves to the newest additions to our Divis menu: the winners of our Divis Sandwich and Sundae contest!

The Giuseppe: Fra’ Mani salami and mortadella, provolone, lettuce, red onion, tomato, dijon mustard, pepperoncini, and lemon aioli on an Acme Rustic Baguette (congrats to Joseph Slattery!)

Opening is so sweet!

The Salty Ginger: Ginger ice cream, ginger snaps, sea salt, chocolate fudge, and whipped cream (congrats to Zoe Byl!)

Plus, a bunch of our passionate food makers are joining us to give out tastes of their cheese, jams and more: check out the Divis events on our calendar here.

Pre-opening Divis staff meeting

We can’t even wait to open our doors at 550 Divisadero (at Hayes). Just like our 18th Street Market, Divis will be open every day from 9am-9pm and will be a one-stop shop for farm direct produce, a full-service butcher counter, deli with prepared foods from our on-site kitchen, natural wine & spirits, fresh bread, local dairy… and of course important doodads like toilet paper and deodorant.

shak its time

It’s time!

What took us so long? We renovated and retrofitted the interior of the building –which was one of the original Safeways—while taking care to preserve the art deco façade. And we’re upping the ante from our 18th St. Market: Divis has an old world style cut-to-order cheese counter and an ice cream scoop shop right inside (yes, Sam’s sundae with chocolate ice cream, Maldon sea salt, bergamot olive oil and whipped cream will be here)!

We hope you’re ready to give us feedback on what dishes and items you love and what we can do better, so we can evolve together. We’ve got a 30 year lease, so we’re planning to be around for a while and we look forward to feeding the neighborhood for years.

Big thanks to our new neighbors for weathering the construction. And thanks to everyone who has already made us feel welcome—from the other Divisadero Merchants to school and church leaders from the Western Addition, Haight, Fillmore, and Hayes Valley neighborhoods that so richly intersect here!facade feb
