High Street Charity Dinners Set for January

This month, High Street Station Café will host its weekly Tuesday night charity dinners, with some proceeds set to be shared with local foster-care services.

The meals are served at High Street Station, 1303 High St. There is seating for 50, and reservations can be made by calling 510-995-8049.

Cafe managers say food at the establishment is now being prepared by a new chef — Doug — and will be served by staff; there will be no buffet line.

The cost of the meals is $10-$13, with an additional charge for wine specifically picked by staff to go with the meal.

In addition to the dinner menu, High Street offers cocktails (martinis, Bloody Marys and margaritas). For those guests who would like to bring their own wine, there is a $10 corkage fee.

Tonight’s meal (Jan. 3) includes Asian pot stickers, chicken-fried rice and Kahlua-infused pork tenderloin; guests can request warm sake for $10.

On Jan. 10, the meal features fried chicken, mashed potatoes, biscuits and banana cream pie, while the Jan. 17 meal’s main course is pasta carbonara with tiramisu as dessert.

Salisbury steak, clam chowder and beef-steak tomatoes will be served Jan. 24, along with roasted yams and Yukon potatoes; dessert is warmed pears with pecans and vanilla ice cream.
