  1. Ferran AdriĆ 
    Monday, Oct 10 7:00p
    at Castro Theatre, San Francisco, CA

    1. The place that does the most AdriĆ -influenced food is probably Atelier Crenn, but they're closed Mondays, as are Coi, Benu, and Saison.

      Commonwealth is open.

      2224 Mission St, San Francisco, CA 94110

      1. Is frances open late enough that one could pop into the bar post-show?

          yelp says until 10:30. oh wait, their site says closed Monday.

          what's the name of the new place that took over the space where baghdad cafe used to be? i'm going to the Adria event as well, and have been wanting to check that place out. i know it's not adria-influenced food.

            Criolla Kitchen is open until 11. So is Poesia. Neither is at all modernist.

            4072 18th Street, San Francisco, CA 94114

            Criolla Kitchen
            2295 Market St, San Francisco, CA 94114

              thanks. yep, i know it's not modernist - i know that's what the OP was looking for.
              anyone been to Criolla yet?

                Several reports:


                A friend said the duck gizzard confit with red beans and rice was great.

                  thanks for the link. i was being lazy. i'll keep the duck gizzard in mind.

                    A lot of experienced 'hounds don't seem to know this . . . click on the blue highlighted "Restaurants" link for Criolla Kitchen and you'll be taken to a hub page that usually has linked discussions and other info about the place. It's a link to this page, not just an address finder.

                    Criolla Kitchen
                    2295 Market St, San Francisco, CA 94114

                    1. re: Melanie Wong

                      You can also click on the restaurant name under Places Mentioned on the right side of the page. Unfortunately there's a bug or design flaw that See All Discussions runs a search on the restaurant name instead of listing the topics with Places links.

                      1. re: Robert Lauriston

                        The list of topics linked to the page is listed near the bottom of the Restaurants page in the section called, "dig deeper: related chowhound discussions". But it's only the most recent ones. And yes, "see all discussion" takes you to a search result, not the full listing of linked topics.
