Here at Bi-Rite, we’re ready to help with your Memorial Day weekend grilling and grubbing! Just a heads-up, we are open all weekend from 9am-9pm, including Monday, May 27th.
On the Grill
We have gorgeous, fresh (just caught yesterday!) wild local King Salmon from Half Moon Bay–grab these fillets while you can. Chili recommends preparing this exquisite fish with tangy and sweet glaze for your broiler or grill.
Just in time for grilling season, we’re offering beef from Five Dot Ranch and SunFed Ranch in ribeye, porterhouse, New York strip, and rib chop cuts. Just ask our butchers which cut is best for your get-together. These meats are great with SFQ San Francisco-style Barbecue Sauce. And don’t forget to pick up Acme burger and hot dog buns, and all your condiments!
On the Side
For sides, try some organic CA-grown bi-color corn – just arrived today! These ears are sweet and crunchy and the first of season. We also have peaches – perfect for grilling. Our produce team recommends yellow peaches; they’re firm and not overly-sweet. Yellow peaches stand up well to cooking and grilling, which brings out their natural sugars. We have two varieties from Balakian Farm: Super Rich and Spring Lady. Pair them with some tangy, creamy Point Reyes mozzarella cheese, hand-pulled by our friends at Farmstead Cheese Company. Short on time? In our cold case, you’ll also find our house-made Cabbage Slaw, Classic American Potato Salad, and a wide selection of ready-to-serve salads and fixings.
A perfect libation to enjoy this holiday weekend is our May Cocktail of the Month – the Copa di Sangue. This summer-y creation comes to us from bartender, Jackie Patterson. Jackie has been on the SF bar scene for some time, having crafted cocktails at Orson, Heaven’s Dog, and Smugglers Cove. She’s won numerous awards for her inspired drinks and is now the National Ambassador for Solerno Blood Orange Liqueur. Her Copa di Sangue is a variation on a Pimm’s Cup with fresh strawberries and Meyer lemon. Come see us at either Market to grab everything you’ll need to mix up Jackie’s refreshing cocktail for Memorial Day Weekend!
For a delicious dessert on a beautiful day, nothing beats strawberry shortcake. Fresh from the Creamery, our buttery shortcakes are just the ticket. Pair them with farm-direct strawberries and a scoop of seasonal strawberry balsamic ice cream for an unforgettable treat. Also new this weekend? Cheesecake with rhubarb swirl – dense, creamy and decadent.
You’ll find everything you need at our 18th St. Market and our Divisadero Market – have a yummy holiday weekend!
