This video enters the world of the Mission Gastroclub, underground dinners hosted by two friends from college. One is a software engineer, the other a former chef at Thomas Keller’s Ad Hoc restaurant in Napa Valley. The duo pairs gourmet food with craft beers, and bridges the gap between fine dining and casual dinner parties among friends.

Dinners continue to be held almost every week inside the small one-bedroom apartment near Cesar Chavez and Mission streets that the two now share.
