We slowly stripped our plate sheets of salacious, smokey sirloin ($9.00):

... at Belcampo.

Arugula planted vegetal variation on these protein papers pulsing with whole grain mustard.

Broccolini ($6.00):

... had a nutritional devaluation in the currency exchange of the deep fryer, but we still happily swept up these little oil-bathed brooms of blooms.

Grilled romaine ($9.00):

... with walnuts and feta was okay, but this heavily citrus salad was not a reorder.

Mt. Tam Cowgirl cheese roped in a “bully burger” ($16.00):

... with a slab of ham that was unsurprisingly superior to their ordinary burger.

They phasing out Almanac beer but when we asked why it was missing from the menu, they sold us some of their surplus stock.

The service wasn’t as wacky as we had experienced here in the past so perhaps they are settling into a groove.

Chili dusted jicama and pickles with a lime lilt:

... started our supper at Copita:

... where we repita’ed our order from our last visit of the ceviche trio ($21.00):

... and tamalitos ($12.00).

These were good, but the chicken tamalito was on the parched side this evening.

They charged $12.00 for the Lorenzo margarita (although the menu lists it as $11.00) but we found the Copita margarita ($10.00) to have a more appealing tang (with less sweetness than the Lorenzo version.)

A brick of compressed watermelon ($14.00):

... laid the foundation for a purselane patch with a pinch of lobster. Avocado and tomato gave creaminess and acid to this swell salad.

Oyster and tinga tacos ($13.00 and $11.00):

... were good grub (but the star was the watermelon salad.)

“Buried Treasure” was unearthed in the ice chest of Fairfax Scoop.

We both dug this trovey take on cookies and cream with chocolate ice cream with peanut butter Newman O’s along with a beany ball of their coffee.

House made cones were curled cookies to cradle the creamy cocktions at our favorite Marin stop for lumps of luscious lactose.

Avocado, spinach and mushrooms ($10.25):

... were the ornaments for an omelet at the Half Day.

This comforting customization cushion was ‘companied with a cup of fruit while a “wake up” scramble ($10.50):

... of house made chorizo, red onion, corn, avocado and queso fresco was alerting a.m. eats.

This decent demonstration of our morning meal will have us heading back again soon.

We rolled in to Fog City:

... where a dozen oysters on the half shell:

... mingled with mignonette and hot sauce.

We slurped these ‘sters down before some babaganoush.

V’s of vadouvaned flat bread became aubergine submarines with waves of fizzily-flourished Campari as well as the Champagne of beers.

House-made American cheese adorned the burger:

... to create veeta vittle variant with a tub of tuber twigs:

... in a sating sandwich and side setup.

Bruce Hill is marking a year of running this San Francisco stop.

Grilled cheese ($7.95):

... with ricotta and wagon wheel cheeses got a pancetta punch at Cowgirl Creamery’s Sidekick.

We water wheeled these over the bay as we barely boarded the ferry with this deck of lactosian lunch along with a flatbread ($7.95):

... with more wagon wheel, some Langenshire and sweetness from apple chutney.

We were glad we didn’t have to bail on our boat as we devoured this cheesy chompage while busting five knots in our flippy floppies.

We are not voodoo practitioners, but frog bones from Monsieur Benjamin:

... fell into formation as we ate our amphibious appendages.

This kicky cuisine ($12.50):

... was bronzily fried, juicy jointage that had a leg up on the more pedestrian permutations peddled by ‘peditors.

Uni ($10.50):

... in a tide pool of verjus were urchinly needed, roe-tation worthy tantalizing tongues.

Sweetbreads Grenobloise ($16.50):

... were globs of glandular goodness, sensationally sauced in a delectable delivery making this a thy-must order item.

Seabass ($32.00):

... rested on plump pillows of mussels with a hint of cumin to complete this sensational seafood surfing while the blanquette de veau ($28.00):

... was a creamy comforter of bistro bovinity.

We went with glasses of white Burgundy and Pinot Blanc from their fundamentally French wine list.

A thick creme anglaise gilded a luscious layered loaf of gateau Marjolaine ($10.50):

This textural tour with ganache panache between layers of crispness and creaminess was gone in a flash followed by dos doses of Calvados:

... before we were on the run.

We will certainly circle back to this Gough bistro for more of their crazy (like a…) cuisine.

M&H’s Spelt bread ($10.00):

... is, alphabetically speaking, more than OK. We got this brick of bread as a dough-fault purchase (due to the sold out state of country bread) and found this super-seeded our crusty cravings with this germination amalgamation.

Our country bread addiction continues, but we have punctuated our wheaten eatin’ with this addition to our spelt out vo-carb-ulary.

Fennel pollenated Escolar crudo ($10.00):

... got crunch from breadcrumbs cushioned with cubes of fish flesh in an aubergine-ious assemblage at Alimento.

Yellowtail collar ($15.00):

... was buttoned up with potatoes in a caper and campfire coerced hamachi hunk. This was nifty, nibblable, neck nosh.

Mackerel conserva ($13.00):

... was mackable with while beans chili and bottarga while baccala ($12.00):

... beckoned and lamb belly ($15.00):

... bleated beautifully from a pancake platform with a salad of fennel, mint and tomato.

Oxtail wagged with gnoc ($16.00):

... in a marrow-mingled melange of pleasing pasta.

Alimento was in its elemento with marvelous masicatables.

A litte stop-motion animated movie called The Boxtrolls had a premiere in L.A. this weekend.

There was a big party for kids and talent:

...alike, where they built some of the miniature movie props as full-sized party props.

Box-shaped parcels of deep fried mac and cheese:

... were lunchable lumps from Wolfgang Puck catering’s non-threatening menu of sliders, chicken skewers:

... salad, stuffed potatoes, vegi wraps:

...and other nursery nosh like passed parcels of popcorn, fries and mini corn dogs.

A sucrosed selection:

... sweetened this soiree supported by these shortie standards.

This tot targeted tucker hit the mark for the pee wee punters.
