dm-image-ph Make this Halloween about more than your killer costume: Bar Agricole (355 11th St.) is hosting a Wes Anderson-themed bash; show up in a character-inspired costume and get a free cocktail. Ramen Shop (5812 College Ave., Oakland) in Rockridge is slinging free drinks for costumes, too, with the addition of a dance party. The Castro's Canela (2272 Market St.) is going all out with a four-course "Treats No Tricks" dinner ($55 per person), with dishes such as caramelized corn soup and chocolate-spiked oxtail. Finally, Off the Grid Fort Mason (5 to 10 p.m., Fort Mason Center) is closing out the season with a Halloween-themed bang, complete with a costume contest.

The newest breath of fresh air in the Tenderloin comes in the form of Huxley, a neighborhood restaurant that opened its doors on Geary Street this Tuesday. Huxley is the newest project from Kris Esqueda (Saison, Sons & Daughters), with chef Sara Hauman (Bar Agricole) at the helm (Brett Cooper consulted on the menu, too). Ingredients are sourced daily from local ranches and farms, with bread coming from next-door café Jane on Larkin. The rustic menu will change regularly, but expect creative combinations like brassicas and mustards in oxtail broth ($12), grilled sand dabs with preserved lemon and brown butter ($23) and olive oil cake with wild fennel ice cream ($8). 846 Geary St.

Also new: three meat flights ($14 to $24), each showcasing three varieties of salumi paired with crostini and pickled vegetables.
