Brunch by the Bay, which starts at 11AM, is brunch like it has never ever been done before. SF Chefs is taking the Bay Area’s favorite meal to a whole new level of lavishness. A roster of trend-setting chefs — some who are known for creating the area’s most exclusive spreads and others who will serve this meal for the first time — will come together to create one unforgettable experience. This culinary wonderland will feature a diverse sampling of cuisine – from traditional French pastry to Dim Sum. Our winemakers, brewers and mixologists will serve their favorite creations: morning cocktails galore, a host of elegant wines, and local brews. Foodie Chap Liam Mayclem and Olympian Brian Boitano will emcee our demo stage where chefs including Martin Yan and Laura Cronin will share their secrets. Let the tunes of the The Glide Ensemble and the Change Band ease you through Sunday afternoon. The Golden Gate Restaurant Association will donate a portion of the proceeds to benefit Meals on Wheels of San Francisco. For more information and a full list of participants, click here.
