Chef Ravi Kapur, who just revealed that he’ll be doing a two-month stint at Piccino starting next month, sends us the menu for one of the final pop-ups of LihoLiho Yacht Club that we’re likely to see for a while. This one’s happening Monday, August 20, at Mission Bowling Club (3176 17th Street at South Van Ness), and for the first time Kapur is getting to pair his casual, Hawaiian-inspired cuisine, with island-style cocktails by friend Kevin Diedrich (Jasper’s Corner Tap). See the full menu of food and drink below.

As mentioned earlier, this menu will be all à la carte, or “pupu-style,” as opposed to the prix-fixe, family-style format Kapur’s been working with.

Please note that reservations for the MBC pop-up are already all filled, but the space is conducive to walk-ins, especially on the early side, starting at 6 p.m. Kapur also promises that the new garlic chicken wings he’s been working on are “bangin.”
