Truck Stop Café, the "occasional restaurant/ full-time shitshow" at Truck (1500 Folsom) from chef Jake Godby of Humphry Slocombe fame, began a series last fall of "blue plate specials" based on the last meals of death row inmates. The kickoff special, based on the last meal of In Cold Blood killers Perry Smith and Richard Hickock, was shimp salad, French fries, and garlic bread. Tonight, Godby's back with the final meal of a French murderer, Hamida Djandoubi, who was the last person ever guillotined in France in 1971. Djandoubi's last meal? Cassoulet, and Godby's version is with duck and lamb, and comes with Tunisian vegetable slaw and orange-almond cake, all for $18. See the full menu here. The fun goes from 6 to 10 p.m., after which Truck turns back into a bar again. [Facebook]
