    Wexler just doesn't get enough mention here. Went there today and had really realy good quail with blueberry-tarragon jam. It was tenderly cooked and the flavors just melded together. I have been here many times since it's only a block away from the office, somehow had missed the quail. Everything on the menu is good and an interesting take on bbq.

    Another sad mention is that they got rid of their happy hour menu that was a favorite at my office. They said that they have to throw away the food come friday as not enough people order them. Thinking back, I've always been able to grab a table during happy hour without reservations. This is sad, this restaurant is really good! Maybe not destination worthy if you're from out of town, but it is a solid restaurant with a great menu!

      I went for lunch yesterday. Fried green tomatoes with smoked feta were great. BBQ brisket bánh mi was awesome. Looking forward to trying it for dinner.

        Oh, yeah, the picture reminds me, I'm not usually a fan of macaroni salad, but with the addition of bacon, peppers, and other crunchy vegetables it was really good.

          The plate of pork that I ordered there recently had some of the best pork schnitzel (lyrically described as "chicken-fried") that I have had in a long while. The "shrimp and grits" were more like "prawn and grits". And the "dirty-rice" arancini were the best arancini I've eaten in SF since Ducca took a turn for the worse. They even had impeccably fresh uni. What a wonderful fusion of European, Red-State, and Asian cuisines. It's not fair to compare this restaurant to a BBQ joint...not fair to the BBQ joint, that is. Especially at these reasonable prices. Hold the ketchup and brown sugar!
