— In food event highlights for this week, Butcher & Bee will host chef Yair Yosefi from prominent Tel Aviv wine bar Brut — he’ll be there September 21 and 22 (a Thursday and Friday, with the Thursday being the second night of Rosh Hashanah), with an aim to use produce from the South to make modern Israeli dishes. As Hanna Raskin reports at the Post and Courier, the menu certainly won’t be Kosher: Brut and Yosefi are known for dishes like lamb belly with yogurt vinaigrette, breaking key rules about mixing dairy and meat. Raskin has more of a preview over here.
— The Glass Onion is mixing beer and benevolence again next Wednesday (September 13). Their next Charity Tasting runs from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. and will feature local brews, with a portion of the $10 cost going to a mentoring program for Charleston-area school students.
— Per the Holy City Sinner, NoMo landmark Edmund’s Oast Exchange is launching weekly wine tastings, Wednesdays from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., with sommelier Sarah O’Kelley taking the lead and educating attendees.
— Hurricane Irma might be coming, but that hasn’t stopped Charleston Restaurant Week or Charleston Beer Week (at least not yet) — for anyone who missed it, Restaurant Week kicked off Wednesday and runs through Sunday September 17, and Beer Week starts Saturday September 9, ending the following Saturday.
