Dessert in a jar, fundraising for a good cause and more food and drink

Our weekly food-news round-up

By CityBeat Staff
CakeinaJar BO-Beau's Cake in a Jar
That, friends, is dessert—inventive BO-Beau Chef Katherine Humphus' "Cake in a Jar." The rotating weekly special (that's chocolate cake with butterscotch and vanilla buttercream to your left) costs $9 and comes in a take-home jar, which means you can get it to-go if you're too full from your meal.

South Park's Alchemy recently formed a nonprofit, the Front Burner Fund, to help cover emergency medical costs for "back of the house" culinary workers. It's inaugural fundraising event happens from 5:30 p.m. to midnight, Tuesday, June 12, and will benefit Alchemy's Executive Chef Ricardo Heredia, who needs eye surgery. Heredia's more than a great chef; he's also someone who gives back to the community, working with underprivileged kids and mentoring young chefs. Chef's participating in the June 12 event include Carnitas Snack Shack's Hanis Cavin, The Marine Room's Ron Oliver, Alex Carballo from Stone Brewing's World Bistro, Tommy Fraioli from Sea Rocket and Beatriz Ledezma from Caxao Chocolates. Event tickets are $25 per person and can be purchased here.

Imig's Kitchen & Bar at the Lafayette Hotel is now open for dinner. Unfortunately, they still have their brunch menu up on their website.

If Katsuya's (yeah, San Diego's got one) prices are a little too high for your paycheck, the chic Downtown sushi spot—with decor by Phillipe Starck—just rolled out "Social Hour." From 4 to 7 p.m. daily, take advantage of $7 specialty cocktails, like the Burning Mandarin (mandarin vodka, hand-crushed serrano chili, fresh lemon, orange juice and a splash of cranberry) and a selection of signature dishes, also priced at $7.
