Best place for Champagne and caviar in sf?
This is why I miss the original Compass Rose in the St. Francis. When it first opened in the 1970's, it was such a marvelous, classy space. We took a visiting aunt there and spent the entire evening drinking champagne and eating caviar from their carts. Hot blini in endless quantities, sour cream, chopped hard boiled eggs, and Scottish lox (my spouse prefers it to caviar).
Sigh. One of my best food memories. I love La Folie, but we've had better luck with the Tasting of Passot Roe dish (on the basis of a dish being more interesting and imaginative, especially when they don't overload it with salmon roe garnishing) than the caviar there. I like Sevruga better than Osetra, just personal preference.
Would have suggested The Lounge at the Ritz-Carlton, but looks like the luxury that used to be on the menu was sacrificed in the redo.
Has anyone been to the Bubble Lounge lately? I haven't for a few years, but here's the menu.
