Every 20-year visit to SF's Elite Cafe

My BH, who is far more forgiving than I, said it was one of the worst meals in living memory.

Horrible, metalic-tasting (and also $12) Mojit cocktail.

Sweetest cornbread I've ever tasted--probably a mistake by kitchen crew.

Flavorless pulled pork and "garlic grits"; underdone and over-lemony collards.

Jambalaya not bad but duck a pointless (and stringy) addition.

Fries by far best-tasting item.

Server acted as if we were privileged to be there! Disdainful and bored.

We ate and drank rather modestly for us and still ended up dropping a regretted $100.

  1. Oh, I am so sorry to hear that. we always like everything at the Elite except the duck. Our teen, who is an expert on pulled pork, thought theirs was the best she'd ever had.
    I hope your experience was the exception rather than the rule -- a bad night or something -- and not that they have declined.
