Location: Secret San Francisco location revealed to ticket-holders right before the event
The Deal: Chef Russell Jackson returns to SF to host a sequel to his inaugural punk-paired dinner, with a multi-course menu full of food and drink surprises that aren't announced in advance, though he's known to have a fondness for items like Iberico bacon, bourbon and (shhh) foie gras.

The Deal: Chef Anthony Yang frequently hosts à la carte brunch service at Dear Mom but this will be a prix fixe meal featuring five dishes, including Chinese-style rice porridge, togarashi-spiced pork belly with homemade pickles and slow poached egg and Yang's biggest breakfast calling card, black truffle waffles with maple syrup.

The Deal: Former Absinthe pastry chef and current culinary instructor Louis Villavelazquez is currently seeking a new home where he can create his dreamy and imaginative desserts.

If you can't make this date, do note that Les Elements will return to Dear Mom on April 5 and 12.
