Taste of Fillmore coming to the street Oct. 3

What's the Fillmore if not food? Add in wine, fashion, jazz -- instant festival.

Mark your calendar for Saturday, Oct. 3, for the Taste of Fillmore. One block of San Francisco's Fillmore Street between California and Pine streets will be closed to traffic but open to a thorough review of the district's finest.

"Because our neighborhood has so many good restaurants, we wanted to create an event that celebrates food and wine on Fillmore," Fillmore Merchants Association President Thomas Reynolds said.

"Just look at all the new places that have arrived in recent months, and another sure-to-be-hot spot will open later this month when Charles Phan brings (Out the Door) to the neighborhood.

"Then as our plans began to jell, some of Fillmore's many fashion boutiques pointed out that a taste of Fillmore involves more than food and wine. So we added a fashion show. And of course there has to be jazz, so members of the Contemporary Jazz Orchestra will perform."

Tickets are $20 each, available here. See you on the street Saturday, Oct. 3.
