The Squirt: The Right Place for Garlic Lovers
Must Eats: Prime Rib
Ren and I were fortunate to enjoy a fantastic garlic themed dinner at The Stinking Rose in San Francisco. This is the brother restaurant of The Stinking Rose that we reviewed in Beverly Hills last year. (Here’s a handy link for you, in case you missed it, or if you just want to see more yummy pictures of garlic-y food!) For those not familiar with the restaurant, it is a garlic lovers paradise! Literally everything on the menu has garlic of some form in it! We really like this location just as much as the other one, but this one has a little element that sets it apart from the other: a small patio dining area upstairs in the center of the restaurant. If you are lucky enough to get there at a good time, there are three small tables up for grabs there, so plan accordingly. Also, be prepared to make reservations, because this place gets packed. After you taste the food you will understand why. (more…)
The Squirt: Endless feast of savory meats!
Must Eats: Chicken wrapped with Bacon; Pork Tenderloin
Prices: Expensive (but worth it!)
Ren and I had a truly fantastic dinner at Espetus Churrascaria, in downtown San Francisco. The restaurant is a real gem, within an area of town that does not have many gems. It is refreshing to enter Espetus Churrascaria, as it is tasteful and warm with nice dark wood accents. It feels as though you are indeed in Brazil. We can say that from personal experience of being in Brazil. Everyone who works at Espetus Churrascaria, is warm and welcoming, one of the characteristics of Latins!
The Squirt: Attractive Restaurant with Great French Cuisine
Must Eats: Escargots de Bourgogne; Cassoulet Maison
Note: Mixed Review- Excellent Food But Server was Substandard
The Grand Cafe is located in the Union Square district of San Francisco. There is definitely an impressive air to the restaurant and it has a classic look to it with high ceilings and an atmosphere of grandeur. One can easily see how it got its name. (more…)
