N. WILLIAMS— Casual Peruvian spot Las Primas celebrates its second year on N.

More information here.

DOWNTOWN— Throughout the month of January, chef Gregory Gourdet will toast Dungeness Crab season with a five-course, all-crab prix fixe menu at Departure: The $65 tasting menu features dishes like crab soup with shiitake mushrooms and kuri squash; Dungeness Crab dumplings with sticky rice; and Dungeness fried rice with pork belly. Reservations not required by suggested by calling 503-802-5370.

ALAMEDA/BEAUMONT— Johanna Wares' Smallwares has announced the launch of a weekly Tuesday Flight Night, featuring a rotating flight of three three-ounce pours for $14. Each week, Ware will pair the flight with an optional pairing menu of three small plates; the first of the series (starting January 14) features wines from the Jura region of France alongside dishes like vadouvan-cured scallop and parsnip mussel veloute.

DOWNTOWN— Like its upstairs neighbor Departure, Urban Farmer will also offer a special Dungeness crab menu for the month of January: The $75, five-course tasting menu features courses like crab bisque with truffle, Dungeness crab risotto, and a main course of dry-aged New York strip with a crab hollandaise.
