MUTEK.SF Announces Culinary Events For Upcoming Festival May 3-6
Today the visionary international festival MUTEK.SF has announced culinary events for its upcoming edition in San Francisco May 3-6, the festival's first edition in the United States. Parallel to the forward-thinking music and arts programming, MUTEK.SF has curated a variety of culinary experiences to expand the scope of cultural offerings passholders can encounter.
MUTEK.SF has curated a series of underground pop-up dinners in collaboration with Feastly that will occur throughout the festival, featuring cuisines and chefs that resonate with themes of integration, permutation, immigration, and futurism. The meals will reflect the culinary diversity of San Francisco, and will occur at pop up spaces throughout the city. Half of the tickets to these meals will be reserved for MUTEK.SF passholders. Participating chefs include Tracy Goh, Hanif Sadr, Geoffrey Reed, Eric Pascual, Francis Ang, Laura Millan & Sayat Ozyilmaz, Shane Thomas, and Siska Marcus. The events curated for MUTEK.SF will be available HERE.
Feastly is an online marketplace connecting enthusiastic diners with talented chefs, through experiential dining, diverse cuisines, and intimate connections with the chefs. As an integral part of the culinary landscape of San Francisco, Feastly and MUTEK.SF are thrilled to meet you at these underground tables!
Additionally, MUTEK.SF will help festival goers eat like a local, offering a limited set of reservations to some of the city's most in-demand restaurants during the festival. Access to these preferred seats seats will be limited to MUTEK.SF passholders through a special reservation line.

Many of these restaurants will offer MUTEK.SF Passholders special deals.
MUTEK.SF has named Chef Preeti Mistry, the executive chef of Navi Kitchen and Juhu Beach Club, as the festival's culinary ambassador. Mistry is a two-time James Beard Award nominee for "Best Chef of the West" in 2017 and 2018, and is a chef whose approach to food and cuisine, blending cross-cultural disciplines, flavors, and techniques, mirrors the lens through which MUTEK San Francisco has curated its programming.
