Menus for the week of February 23rd.
It was lower than -20° in some parts of the country this week. Meanwhile, in San Fransicso-land, it was shorts weather on some days (even though San Franciscans, as a rule, do NOT wear shorts). I remember, growing up in the Midwest, seeing blue everywhere on the US weather map in the winter, except the Southwest, where it was always a warm yellow or orange, and thinking how nice it must be for them. I could not really comprehend it though, and now that I’ve been here for a decade running, I can hardly imagine their reality. Occasionally, an east-coaster will ask me if I miss the seasons.
No. No I do not.
Here’s what we’ve got planned for this week:
- Monday pulls from all over the Maghreb
- Tuesday is handed down from the Aztecs
- Wednesday references the Persian spice trade in 17th century Thailand
- Thursday celebrates the hearty dishes from Americana
- Friday pays dues to Ottolenghi the Master
If you didn’t get a chance to join our beer tasting for SF Beer Week (or if you did join us and loved the beers), you still have time to try two of the three beers featured that night. Son of Wrath is a Double IPA with 92 IBUs and 9.5% ABV. Therapist IPA is a big but tame beast, an Imperial IPA coming in at 100 IBUs and 10.4% ABV! Come get a taste before these kegs are tapped out.
Stop in, say hello, grab a bite to eat.
