BiteClub’s plotzing about Hanukkah dinner at Backyard Restaurant in Forestville. The four course meal, which happens on Wednesday, Dec. 4, includes latkes, halibut quenelles (way better than gefilte fish!), matzoh ball soup, brisket, farro-stuffed pumpkins and a few more surprises including guest chef Josh Silvers joining exec chef Daniel Kedan in the kitchen. Reservations recommended. 6566 Front St., Forestville, (707) 820-8445.
