Specialties to look for this time of year ....
Have reservations at Zuni (lunch), Aqua and Coi (dinner) next week. Im coming from DC -- any local ingredients I should be seeking to try on the menus (or general, recent menu suggestions for these spots).
Also, looking for a place for lunch on Thursday. Dim Sum. Any suggestions beyond Yank Sing? I may be near Powell St. BART so I was looking at Tian Sing.
Zuni has a coffee granita on the menu year round, I think. If the weather stays warm then it would be a nice afternoon treat with your lunch.
Zuni's menu changes daily, so is a good place to look to find out what's in season.
Some stuff I've seen on market-driven menus lately:
pea leaf (Chinese restaurants)
