Where’s Ravi Kapur? Liholiho Yacht Club Docks at State Bird Provisions

For some foodies, following the whereabouts of peripatetic former Nancy Oakes’ protege Ravi Kapur is a sport akin to inside baseball. It’s been half a year since Kapur left his post at Prospect to strike out on his own, and for the last few months he’s been wowing the underground supper club scene with his Hawaiian-inspired restaurant pop-up Liholiho Yacht Club, which has been roosting on Monday evenings at SoMa's Citizen’s Band

Well, it’s time to update your calendar, because Kapur’s just announced that he’s relocating his operations to State Bird Provisions in the Fillmore, at least for the next two Sunday nights.

Each dinner will feature a family style meal comprised of 12 dishes, priced at $50 per person (excluding beverages, tax and tips). Reservations for the pop-up dinners can be made on the State Bird Provisions website, but to keep abreast of future pop-up dates, stay tuned to their Twitter account @liholihoclub or the Facebook page. Check out the potential sample menu for the upcoming events (courtesy of Inside Scoop), that includes the likes of tuna poke with taro chips, fried quail Korean-style (hey, when in Rome) and tofu with pickled eggplant and dried shrimp, culiminating with coco puffs and custard mochi.
