Cocktail honor for Craft & Commerce, a new brewery and lots of meat

Our weekly food-news round-up

By CityBeat Staff

Craft & Commerce was just named a finalist in 2012 Spirited Awards, which will be handed out at the annual Tales of the Cocktail festival happening in New Orleans in July. Despite San Diego's growing, damn-fine craft-cocktail scene, this is the first time a local establishment's received such an honor. If you're not familiar with the Little Italy bar and restaurant's cocktail program, scope it out here (and note the lack of vodka, considered by C&C's 'tenders to be "an odorless, tasteless spirit").

Last week, the Museum of Photographic Arts opened The Jazz Loft Project: W. Eugene Smith in NYC, 1957-1965, a multimedia exhibition that features Smith's visual and aural snapshots of his time living in a Manhattan building frequented by jazz greats like Thelonius Monk and Charles Mingus. Every Thursday, beginning May 31 and going until Sept. 27, The Prado restaurant, located a couple doors down from MOPA in Balboa Park, is offering a special $79.95 per couple ($39.95 per person) three-course dinner that includes a bottle of wine and two tickets to the exhibition. The jazz-themed menu includes items like the "Goodbye Pork Pie Hat" (slow-roasted pork prime rib, goat cheese potato puree, peaches, baby arugula and a Jack Daniels-and-ginger sauce) and "Night in Tunisia (red lentil and chickpea soup with North African spices and yogurt). 

Hat-tip to San Diego attorney, politics junkie and fan of good food and beer, Omar Passons, for two tweets that got our attention: One was about new Clairemont craft-beer brewer, Societe Brewing, which just soft-opened its tasting room in advance of a June 30 grand opening. Totally dig the logo, Societe. Also, if you're a Downtown worker, or happen to be in the area of Third Avenue and B Street during lunchtime on a Monday or Wednesday, you'll find a gathering of food trucks in 4th & B's parking lot. Get a schedule of who'll be showing up here.

So, yeah, that photo up top? From 6 to 9 p.m. Saturday, May 26, it's "Meat Night" at Khan's Cave. For $40 per person, it's all the ribs, sausage links, duck, chicken, plus sides and trimmings you can eat. Reservations are required. Good luck.
