In addition to prix fixe seders at Saul's tomorrow ($35) and Perbacco on Wednesday ($49), Heeb magazine is teaming up with Mission Beach Café once again for its annual Slow Food Seder. As Tablehopper tipped us off, the local and organic menu includes things like smoked black cod with potato kugel, an oven-roasted duck with Israeli couscous and Jerusalem artichokes, and, obviously, a flourless chocolate cake. See the full four-course offering below.
