I know, I know, summer in San Francisco isn’t necessarily “summer,” really, but c’mon! We still get all the amazing tomatoes, stone fruit, vegetables, and good vibes that summer brings to everyone outside the fog bank. The days are luxuriously long, BBQs can last well into the wee hours, and with the solstice and 4th of July just around the corner, there’s no better time of year to slather on the sunscreen and invite everyone you know over for a little sun (or not-sun) worship.
Bi-Rite Catering is gearing up for a great season using many of the fantastic seasonal fruits and veggies that are carried by our markets! There are so many new veggie options on the menu, in fact, that by the time you get to the Focaccia Flatbread with Peaches, Bacon, Goat Cheese, Fresh Thyme and Rooftop Honey Drizzle and the brand new Ciabatta Finger Sandwiches with Estancia Beef Tenderloin, Roasted Red Peppers, Grilled Onions, Chimichurri Sauce and Mixed Greens, you’ll have to figure out how to make room. And you’ll do it, too.
You’ll have to! Otherwise how else are you going to figure out your favorite new salad dish? It’s going to be tough to choose between Summer Corn and Tomato Salad with Mediterranean Cucumbers, Peppers, Red Onions, Cilantro, and Parsley and something like our Fresh Summer Bean and New Potato Salad with Parsley and Roasted Shallot Vinaigrette. You know what? Don’t choose. Get them both! And if you absolutely must have some sort of food on a stick (who doesn’t?), we are all really excited about the Mozzarella Bocconcini and Cherry Tomato Skewers with Basil Dip. So simple yet so, so delicious.
So if it’s a 4th of July party, an office cocktail reception, or Aunt Dorothy’s family reunion in Golden Gate Park, we have your food desires covered. Now go chase some sun!
