Craving Lamb Shank, in town 2 nights
Years ago while on a business trip to SF (from Seattle) I stumbled into a bar (attached to a restaurant) near Union Square with a fabulous wine list and had the Best Lamb Shank Of My Life. It was on a bed of de Puy lentils, crispy, tender, oh my mouth is watering now!
where should I go to try and relive this experience? Not too expensive please.
I will be in SF 2 nights and other places on the top of my short list are Nopa, Bar Tartine, and Yuet Lee (ate there years ago and loved it!).
*Aziza, for a slightly sweet Cal/Morrocan version.
*Tommy's Joynt for a super cheap yet still very tasty version (Thurdays only).

Lamb shank's the kind of rustic French dish that South Park Cafe does well.

Mezze on Lakeshore Ave in Oakland has a delicious Moroccan Lamb Shank Tajine, but may not be the most accessible without a car
Kokkari does a wonderful braised shank, if $28 is within your range.
