San Francisco Thoughts

  • 1

So, I'm in SF as a solo traveller. I'm only here for a few days but I'm mostly focussed on the beer rather than trying to be the bottomless stomach.

Anyway, here are my thoughts,

Incanto was great. The Lamb's Heart Tartare was really well balanced, the Calamaretti Nero was tasty. The sweetbreads were revelatory and the duck liver was great. I was also impressed with their bread service and the wine/beer options.

While I had planned to head to Atelier Crenn, events conspired against me and I was later convinced by a chef friend to simply visit NOPA after a few drinks at Toronado. The fennel sausage at NOPA was excellent and the burger was very good;

Finally, I visited Benu. Chef Lee's food really appeals to my Australian palate with the Asian flavours adding depth and complexity. The service was also good and the wine service from Young Ha "Sommelier" is excellent.

  1. Sounds like you're eating well.

    How was/is the beer?
