Seafood For One; State Bird Provisions [San Francisco]
I'll be in San Francisco for a Thursday-Sunday trip. Looking for a seafood dinner. I was jazzed by the Block + Tackle menu in Portland, and by what I saw of Connie & Ted's in LA. Any recommendations for San Francisco, along those lines.
Separately, the weekend I am in town is the last weekend before State Bird Provisions closes. Worth a visit? Do I have any likelihood that I'll get in? What if I have someone with you? Any suggestions.
So casual readers don't have a heart attack: State Bird is closing for several weeks for renos as it takes over the old Hapa Ramen space http://insidescoopsf.sfgate.com/blog/...
Here's Block and Tackle's menu in case any locals can suggest similar in the Bay Area: http://blockandtacklepdx.com/menu/
For seafood you can check out the menu for Bar Crudo.
With regards to State Bird Provisions, I am in the camp who believes it is overhyped, esp. considering how difficult it is to get in. I would recommend you check out AQ, Rich Table, Frances, Commonwealth.
