    Dogpatch -----
    Poquito - just opened, I thought I saw a thread
    Serpentine - slow club but better
    Kitchenette http://www.kitchenettesf.com/
    Moshi Moshi - I think rather underrated, but better for Anything Fried than sushi

    Moshi Moshi Restaurant
    2120 Cowell Blvd Ste 143, Davis, CA 95618

      My report on Poquito:


      The Old Clam House is aptly named. Also, it's a long way from Third St. I don't know what it's doing on that list.

        The article is partly about the Bayview, and Old Clam House is in the Bayview. Same with very-close-by J&V on Jerrold.

        Re Moshi moshi -- also the grilled stuff is good. The sashimi is decent quality too but I agree totally re sushi because their sushi rice isn't all that good.

          Actually, I now provisionally take that back. Ordered sushi here tonight for the first time in ages. Rice was very good. Must be someone else now making it. If it is equally good next time I will totally revise my opinion/recommendations.

        Thumbs up for Piccino. We never go beyond pizza + salad there - because its that good. Love the casual, friendly atmosphere and service too.

          Very good waffles at Auntie April's Chicken & Waffles. The chicken? Not bad, but there is better (like at Hard Knox).

          Junior BBQ sounds interesting...

            New Spot should be on this list. The pupusas are amazing. They close on the early side (6:30 or 7).

              Their pupusas are yummy, but I recently started to try some their other offerings since their menu is so broad. Their panuchos are excellent, larger than the ones in Mexico, but also more flavorful. They do not use achiote rub on the chicken, but it is otherwise an authentic rendition. They are my favorite version, better than the version at Mi Lindo Yucatan IMHO.

              Also, they serve breakfast all day, and their chilaquiles are great. Two eggs over saucy tortilla chips with cheese and salsa and crema. Refried beans are good too.

                I'll have to branch out. Hard not to order pupusas there though.

              Second the addition of the New Spot to the list. Also would include the divey but oh-so-addictive Mariposa Cafeteria for their roast pork.

              There's the Ramp, and Kelly's Mission Rock though I haven't been to Kelly's for a few years. I'm pretty sure they're still open. I hear there's going to be a new restaurant opening in the Esprit Square Buildings, but not sure on status there. There's also Oralia's Cafe, which also opened recently on Third Street. Also the sandwich place open only for lunch on 19th (I forget the name). That's all I can think of for now that hasn't already been covered.

              Mission Rock Cafe

                the ramp is fun for its outdoor seating and views, but the food is nothing special

                  Glad someone mentioned Mariposa. Also I believe Jelly's closed down...use to have a decent brunch.

                  Mr. and Mrs. Miscellaneous for dessert.

                    Closes at 6, 5 on sunday. I've managed to squeak in twice, once was a before dinner treat to Serpentine.

                    The Red Flannel Hash at Serpentine is one of my favorite brunch items in the city.

                      Try Taqueria La Laguna located on 3rd in Bayview for some spice in your life.

                        Our wonderful dinner at Serpentine prompted this positive report.
                        Warm greeting from hostess, 8:30 reservation, seated immediatedly in a chic urban loft-like space, high ceilings but very warm yellow light. Everyone eating, laughing, enjoying, good energy in the room. Passed the bar (where I would feel comfortable eating alone) and were seated in the dining area, friendly busser as well. Some really great little Sonoma and Anderson Valley wine producers. Chose a Meyer Cellers Syrah (Yorkville), very small markup. Awkward clipboard menus, hard to read small font, not sexy. Lots of interesting choices for starters, padron peppers, stone fruit salad, homemade pickles, roasted corn, I had the grilled chicken livers. Main course was classics, salmon, steak, etc., done with a gentle spicing that didn't feel Asian or Indian or really out of anywhere, just vaguely yummy and well thought out. I had the roasted chicken, moist and crisp on a bed of corn, spinach and cherry tomatoes, lovely grilled fig on top. Companion had gnocci, delicately spiced cream sauce, light and firm gnocci with peas. You can get it with or without bacon. Very nice. So much care was taken to think about the eater, that for me is the measure of a good restaurant, who will eat this? what will it taste like to them? Everything was balanced.
                        The servers were friendly on a full house Saturday night, lots of generous smiles for everyone, no one kept waiting, no one rushed away. They were still seating people after 9PM. Service was correct, water glasses filled, plated cleared appropriately, and the best service line I've heard in a while. Instead of asking "is there anything I can get for you" which makes it seem like the server is doing you a favor, she asked something along the lines of "Is there anything else you might desire now" which sounded like she could just make it magically appear. Very smooth. The price was right for 2 apps, 2 entrees, bottle of wine and 2 dessert wines, a fair 120 bucks. Nice dessert wine menu (Beaumes de Venise, Walnut liquer). Great place to get a city vibe minus the city 'tude, and stress (ez parking). Will be going back with friends soon.

                          we recently had an excellent brunch at Just for You. the eggs with green chile made with Hatch chiles took me back to Santa Fe, and consistent in that style they went perfectly with the tortillas, black beans, and cheese ; my spouse really liked her frittata w. grits (many breakfasts include both grits or home fries plus house made breads, corn bread, or scones, and her corn bread was very good as was the side of home fries w. my eggs/chile). the beignet was one of the best in my experience anywhere, including the Cafe du Mond. one average but significant item -- the coffee.

                            Skip the chicken fried steak at Hard Knox.
