San Francisco's own British Celebrity Chef, David Lawrence from 1300 Fillmore, will temp your taste buds with some delicious nibbles and San Francisco's own world famous Anchor Steam Brewery will host the bar for our 2012 San Francisco BritWeek finale.

David honed his skills at England’s most celebrated and honored culinarians, Albert and Michael Roux. He has cooked for politicians and royalty: Prince and Princess of Wales; Princess Margaret, Countess of Snowdon; and Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. He moved to America in 1986 and has not looked back.
