After taking a few weeks off, chef Ravi Kapur will be back at it next week, serving up his heavily Hawaiian-based cuisine as he starts up another round of Liholiho Yacht Club dinners at Citizen’s Band in San Francisco.
Kapur said in an email that the response has been so positive that he feels “inspired and excited to keep cooking in a way that’s very close to my heart.” He said the dinners are evolving more into a weekly deal rather than a pop-up.
Kapur hasn’t quite finalized the menu for the next set of dinners but diners can expect several similarities to what was seen in the first two series. The price will once again be $65 inclusive of tax and tip and not including beverages.
The meals are all served up family-style with four dishes each in the first and second courses and two sweets to finish up with. Kapur said he really loves the relaxed environment where people can come in, relax, enjoy some great food and as he likes to say “get jag” (drink and cut loose).
Reservations are only being taken through Open Table and Kapur said to check back frequently the day of the dinner if you can’t find a suitable time as they have had cancellations at previous dinners.
As for how long the dinners will last, Kapur said he is still looking for a restaurant space in his neighborhood (The Mission) and that “his vision is coming together as he keeps his eyes out for the right fit.” Kapur left Prospect last year to spend more time with his wife April and son Makoa, who just turned one this week.
Citizen’s Band is located at 1198 Folsom Street in San Francisco. If you can’t get reservations, there is also counter seating at the restaurant for walk-ins. The next series will be held on Monday nights on May 14, 21 and 28.
