Last minute reminder for those looking for something to do tonight: Merlin Verrier, chief of operations of the Graham Elliot empire, will be guest-cheffing it tonight at Barcito in the latest edition of the Amigos of Pintxos series, from 8 to 10 p.m. Proceeds go to Common Threads; it’s $25 to get in.
And congratulations are in order to two gents of the culinary scene. First, to Efrain Cuevas (Clandestino), who married his girlfriend Helen Tunea over the weekend. And second, to Jim Graziano of the great J.P.Graziano’s on Randolph Street, who welcomed the next generation of the family business, Francesca Marie, into the world yesterday.
