2019 Farmer & Vegetable Dinner Series

Since opening over 12 years ago, our ethos has always been a commitment to our local market—especially to the passionate and committed farmers who have allowed us to thrive. We take great pride in the relationships we’ve cultivated with them.

The monthly Farmer & Vegetable Dinner Series is an outlet for Chef de Cuisine Andy Doubrava and Executive Chef Jeremy Fox to create very focused celebrations of—and dedications to—one amazing farm or one humble ingredient (or both!). Our proximity to one of the greatest markets in the country gives us the chance to work with the most amazing farmers in the world. Come join us in celebrating these wonderful people, and the incredible hard work and passion they put their backs into every day.

All dinners are 5 courses, with tickets available 1 month in advance via Resy for each night. If any of our dinners are sold out, you can call the restaurant to be added to the waitlist.

Here’s what else we have going on at “The Canyon,” from local collaborations to visiting chefs and more.

Tuesday, April 30 – Foreign Cinema Cookbook Dinner – We’re excited to welcome our friends Gayle Pirie and John Clark, chefs behind San Francisco’s beloved Foreign Cinema restaurant, as they share signature dishes and cocktails from their cookbook, The Foreign Cinema Cookbook: Recipes and Stories Under the Stars. The chefs are partnering with our Chef de Cuisine Andy Doubrava to create a five-course menu featuring Rustic Canyon’s take on the dishes and drinks, melding Northern and Southern California sensibilities with an emphasis on global spices and vegetable-driven fare. Tickets are $105 per person. Copies of their cookbook will be available to purchase separately at the restaurant.

For 20 years, Foreign Cinema has celebrated the bounty of Northern California alongside irresistible flavors, serving vibrant, seasonal food beneath an amber-lit, al-fresco courtyard, paired with film nightly, in San Francisco’s Mission District. The chefs impart impart an acute sense of place with their daily-changing menus, and the cookbook captures that essence, evolution, and enduring charm. The cookbook recently selected as one of NPR’s Best Books of 2018!
