Trip Report Eating my way thru San Francisco

Jump to last reply

Once again, the dining experiences in SF were mostly wonderful.
There were four of us at most meals and we shared a lot of dishes; so we got to experience a nice variety of what the restaurants were serving.

Lunch:

Hog Island Oysters (2x)
Tadich Grill (2nd time)
Cupola Pizzeria
The Girl and the Fig (2nd time)

Brunch:

Yank Sing (3rd time)
Baker and Banker

Dinner:

Barbacco (2nd time)
Cotogna
State Bird Provisions
Betel Nut (2nd time)
Park Tavern
Chiaroscuro

Cupola was a disappointment - despite having char marks, the dough was not thin enough and was too chewy.
Chiaroscuro - good food, but too pretentious - wouldn't return
Barbacco - still love everything about this place
Tadich - had my first petrale sole - so simple - excellent quality
Girl and the Fig - perfect
State Bird - can't begin to remember what we ate - unusual and wonderful - and the state bird should not be missed; we had a whole one.
Park Tavern - wonderful birthday dinner
Cotogna - despite lamb chops that were too chewy, I'd return; everything else was very good
Baker and Banker - perfect brunch - cramped quarters
