A nice char on a margherita ($10.00):

... peeled out of the wood burning stove from Firetrail Pizza truck.

This flamed flap was a swell snack at Streat Eats where we enjoyed our al fresco freeway chompage during a quick and peppy pullover.

Steamed orange roughy ($16.95):

... at Lily Kai was simple sustenance as was the wonton soup ($7.35):

The dining room was sparsely populated with locals with kids eating child-friendly chow.

Broccoli ($9.25):

... was sweeter than we prefer and calamari ($10.25):

... was on the oily side for our tastes at this Tiburon turnout.

Not one for our rotation, but this seems to have a place in this insular area.

Roast chicken ($10.00):

... from Cassia:

...had a nice aji verde salsa sided with lumps of sweet potato.

This pleasing poultry pitch flew in during the last game of the world series at the Hall.

Their kale salad ($5.00):

...did not score with us, unlike the moist and flavorful fowl.

Raj + Singh’s:

... samosa ($2.00):

... wound up with tamarind and cilantro had a bit of heat to the sauce for this crisp crusted, tuber triangle that was a fly ball.

A salady lamb gyro ($9.00):

... from the Whole Beast:

... burst with cherry tomatoes in a garlicky pita mitt. This yogurty, harissa hit was an excellent accompaniment to the rowdy game crowd.

The post victory streets were packed with revelers.

City Hall, the Opera House and the Symphony were all lit up in Giants orange as we managed to maneuver along Van Ness back to the hutch.

Patrons of the Presidio Social Club drowned their sorrows:

... as the Giants were pounded in a bitter defeat.

We sweetened the situation with an ice cream sandwich ($8.00):

... with candied peanuts to cracker jack-up this salted caramel ice cream-cored, toasted marshmallow and chocolate brownie cookie, breaking ball.

Chocolate torte ($8.00):

... went to bat with coffee ice cream had a nibby top to contribute crunch as a diversion from this dense, mud mound.

This presidio perch was a good base run while we were in the park.

Zagat’s 30 under 30 party took over the Fairmont's Tonga room:

... to celebrate sub senior standout citizens of San Francisco.

Tiki tipple:

.. and pupu platters:

... circulated in this subterranean setting:

... with silk screening stations:

... and nom-erical 4505 tacos.

Front of house, back of house and out of house honorees included chef Laetitia Madsen (who was cheered on by the Benu-fient Corey Lee):

...Nomiku’s sous vide CEO, Lisa Fetterman (lauded for her under pressure position) and Thomas McEntee’s butchery (who is raising the steaks at 4505).

This evening’s event was a fun frolic for this fresh force of escalating talent pushing prandial potential.

When the zombie apocalypse comes, we are headed to M&Z’s:

... not just for the fine company, but they make their own wine, salumi:

... and olives.

Sparkling wine, frico, pate:

... bacon and onion skewers, salumi, olives as well as beets shuffled with mascarpone:

... started our feast filled out with delectable roast duck with sauerkraut and rice:

... washed down with more wine.

Olive oil and rosemary cake:

... was capped off with dessert wines to conclude the always cravable cuisine of our neighbors.

Think of the peanut cookie ($1.25):

... at Marla Bakery as peanut butter you can pick up. A pinch of salt capped this magnetic allergenic in a mouth melting disc of delectability. This legume up on others in this jiffy genre will have us skipping back soon.

A noodley matzo ball soup:

... was solid standard issue soupage at Miller’s:

... followed by a pastrami sandwich:

... with meat that was sliced thinner than we prefer, but it was still a sating stack of ‘strami resting between fresh slices of rye.

The Cobb:

... had the line up of usual salady suspects in an inappropriate order at this kosher corner. In the future, we’ll stick with the fish platters.

It was difficult, but today we managed to bypass the Bi Rite scoop shop to grab some roasted banana and peanut butter spun together in a cone ($4.00):

... at their soft serve stand down the street.

This Elvisy swirl was one of the King’s famed sandwiches loosely translated into sweetish. The flavors melded into a frigid fruit and lickable legume dairy duo that was a pleasing plume in a cake cone, but with their ice cream shop steps away, our dessert destination will probably remain the Creamery.

ABV turned into A Burger Venue during their “double dragon” two day, burger nights face off.

Poutine ($10.00):

... with beef cheek gravy and white Cheddar curds was a sating, saturated spud stack with some Moonlight Brewery Bombay by Boat IPA:

... before we sailed through the main event.

Kevin Cimino’s pimento cheese burger($9.00):

... had a sweet potato bun and well seasoned, medium rare meat with a good beef to bread ratio. We liked this pleasing pimentoed patty pouch from ABV’s chef.

Chris Kronner’s Kronnerburger ($10.00):

... had a smokier scent with a bit more bread than needed. The grind on the meat took a coarser route (which we enjoyed) but our tastes run towards less mayo and more lettuce than this pickle planked patty provided. It was however, a fine burger that we would get again.

We preferred the sweet potato bun and the ratios on Cimino’s but loved the smokiness and grind on Kronner's, so they both are high rated hamburgers that were fun to A/B. We will be dragon ourselves back for more at their separate venues (when Kronnerburger opens.)

The stars aligned during this evening’s 2015 Michelin Guide gala at the Bently Reserve:

... where the culinary concentration otalent created a supernova with cheffage including Thomas Keller, Corey Lee, and Roland Passot.

Chef Passot’s:

... Faberge eggs with cauliflower and caviar:

... were ‘semplary in their field while Bouchon’s:

... Chef Ross Melling’s mer-iage of oysters with pink Champagne gelee with white sturgeon caviar:

... was top shellfish washed down with Alpha Omega’s Sauvignon Blanc.

Cocktails included a delectable daiquiri:

... and a Spruced up:

... old fashioned:

Quail eggs or quail legs?

These soundalikes incubated as Chez TJ’s:

... Chef Jarad Gallagher’s ova the top sweet potato terrine with crisp, fried, kale, walnuts with Alba white truffles:

... and the legs of Chefs Brioza and Krasinski’s:

... State Bird statement of deep fried poultry embedded with pepitas and finished with shaved parmesan.

Chef Peter Armellino’s barley risotto:

... was a tantalizing, truffle-topped tumble plumed with with beef tendon chicharron.

Michelin men:

... Bibendum:

... and Micheal Ellis brought the local constellation on stage:

... for a Champagne Laurent Perrier toast before musical merriment:

... and a selection of sweets.

We are cracking open the Michelin 2015 guide:

... and putting on the proper a-tire for recon on their radial reccos.
