I think Matt and I have different reasons for going to restaurants. He seems to enjoy food, whereas my therapists strongly suggest I spend a certain amount of time in public lest I lose all connection to humanity.

D, do you check SF home listings to see if that apartment comes up? If so, I think you are already in that pickle.

Slanted Door at sunset is a quite enjoyable experience. But I don't hate people (much). Tacolicious is tasty, but I am almost offended every time I get the bill there. It's not obscene in the abstract, but when you consider that you've just spent $50 bucks on street food and you could probably stand to eat some more, it pinches. I've only had brunch at Nopa. Company was tasty as well, but surprisingly dead on a Saturday night. Just went to Perbacco on Saturday for my friend's birthday. Not sure why, but all I wanted was vegetables, so I ordered sides and was quite happy.

On purely food grounds, I would probably take Matt's word for it, but I also like some of that Michael Bauer friendly food.

RD, I hope your trip here was successful. It was nice to meet you.

I like Perbacco a lot. Really well executed food. I'm almost never disappointed there.

What was the name of the restaurant on some backstreet in Jackson Square - maybe French country cooking? 

 

Quiet space. Seemed to be run by adults.

Thanks, SB. The trip was very successful, although it turned out to be about two weeks longer than I expected, leading to a sizable hotel laundry bill.

Went by slanted door this evening, something about the crowd didn't feel quite right. Didn't see the perbacco suggestion until just now and I've posted up at the bar at La Folie (ate in the dining room earlier this week) for the evening. All of the other suggestions are going on my list for the next trip.

I've had some phenomenal food here in SF and a lot of you are to thank for that. So, thanks again and a pleasure to meet you, SB, as well as the other SF'ers with whom I had the opportunity to converse.

i really liked Slanted Door, but I'd demolish 100 salt and pepper crabs at R&G before returning to Slanted Door.

This pop-up New Zealand restaurant on Pier 29 was fun. http://www.waihekeislandyachtclub.com/about/


Anyone else try it?

I can't persuade all of my brain that that URL doesn't read askandyaboutyachtclub.com

In other news, I was in Brooklyn today, walking down Driggs and I think I saw Yeiner Perez. He was shirtless and doing stretches against a chain link fence. I may have to call the DA back home tomorrow.

The weather for the past week has been GLORIOUS. Just perfect. The days are getting shorter, the sun is rising way too late in the morning to get me motivated in any way, yet we finally have our "summer" to all seem OK. And the tomatoes are still absolutely delicious - Two Dog Farms tomatoes have been on my daily diet for the past two weeks, so when winter finally hits I know that I have exhausted my desire for them.

A friend want to go to the Roxie cinema last night, so I spent most of it in the Mission. It had been awhile.

We looked around for places to eat, and apparently Litquake is going on, so almost every place on Valencia had some shrieking woman standing on a chair inside. Lots of leafy trees, and the place just looks bizarre now. There is a Blue Dot store. It does look a lot like Brooklyn, and I don't understand that place either. We ended up going to a Maya place on Mission proper. Food was good and cheap, which is what I always associated with the Mission. I was really surprised about how Twee everything else was.

But the worst was as we were crossing Valencia on the way to Harringtons. Heading in the other direction, towards us, was a middle-aged man wearing a bright blue leather coat over a t-shirt, and a long purple scarf draped around his neck. Everything about him was new and clean and he appeared to have a three-figure haircut, so he couldn't have been homeless, or a hippie. He had a dead stare on his face.

I do not think I will be going back there for quite awhile.
