Over in Oakland, Daniel Patterson’s Haven just announced a couple of upcoming events for which reservations are recommended. The first, on Monday, February 4, features a group of alumni from the Manresa kitchen joining fellow alum and Haven exec chef Kim Alter for a collaborative, six-course dinner. Free agents John Paul Carmona and Zack Freitas (formerly of Station 1 and Zaré at Fly Trap) will be cooking along with Marty Cattaneo (Dio Deka), and Spruce staffers Johnny Madriga and Berto Vallejos. It’s $90 per person, with $45 additional for pairings. See the full menu here, and reserve at 510-663-4440.

Like most other restaurants, Haven is doing a Valentine’s Day prix fixe, which is $75 per person.

Then on February 17, to cap off SF Beer Week, Oakland’s The Trappist is collaborating on a five-course beer-pairing dinner, which is $80 per person.
