SF - Beach Street Grill?

Anyone tired this place?

They serve breakfast all day. They make the mayonaise for the hollandaise sauce for the eggs Benedict. There are biscuits and gravy and a good looking stack of pancakes. They also make their own tortillas for the huevos rancheros. Anyone know anything about complimentary mimosas?

They also serve char-broiled burgers and steaks. The greens are organic. There is homemade spicy peanut brittle and fudge.

Run by a husband and wife team, Christine & Johan. It seems she worked at Peter D's on Broadway and he worked at Tadich Grill. In addition to some of her own recipes, she is using some from her mom who had a few restaurants in Marin ... but don't know which restaurants.

This restaurant got slammed by a local website (which never tried the food) because it replaced Kabul City and it seems the decor seemed too toursity, kitschy. The owner's sister is responsible for the ... stuff.

It sounds like a charming mom and pop with home cooked food.

I'm about to decsend on one of my tours of Fisherman's Wharf .. yeah, Fisherman's Wharf. There are actually a bunch of breakfast spots there that sound promising. I'm wondering if anyone has tried Beach Street Grill?

There are a few outdoor tables and they are nice to people with dogs.

... or so I read elsewhere on the web. I'm intrigued.

  1. If the hollandaise sauce is based on mayonnaise, housemade or not, I don't want to eat it. That's not how to make hollandaise.

      I'm sure that RW meant they make their own mayonnaise and hollandaise and that was a simple mistake on her part. Or perhaps your reply was joking and I misread? The restaurant sounds like they are trying to offer from scratch food, which is great, and if they care to make their own tortillas, brittle and fudge they probably know the difference between 2 yolk based sauces. I'm looking forward to comments ~ it would be good to have a good breakfast option in that area.

        I haven't been and it didn't occur to me about mayo and hollandaise (zilch cooking skills), so might have been a misstatement elsewhere. Will see.

        One place I'm really interested in for a Wharf breakfast is Darren's Cafe. That's that little Vietnamese place that opened where Saigon Grill was. Supposedly the Italian omelet is killer and they have chicken fried steak.

        Then there is that bacon waffle at Capurro's that another poster mentioned. I think I had breakfast there a zillion years ago, and it was what one would expect, average and overpriced. However, the bacon waffle has an allure.

        Fisherman's Wharf Deli has some inexpensive breakfasts that seem pretty basic.

        I'm thinking the pancakes are the thing to get at Beach Street based on the photos. Also, a char-broiled burger might hit the spot ... and beat In-N-Out in that category in that area
