First Taste: ABV's Este Oeste pairs Basque-style tapas with sherry and gin

By

Since it's pretty much winter outside, we could really go for cozy share plates and heart-warming sherry cocktails in this little nook of an upstairs bar.

At ABV's Over Proof, the bar tucked back above the Mission restaurant, a new concept is now pouring: For the next few months, owners Ryan Fitzgerald, Erik Reichborn-Kjennerud, and Todd Smith are taking us on a trip through Spain. Chef Collin Hilton's new prix-fixe menu includes five or more dishes designed to pair with sherry and gin-focused cocktails. Click through for a taste of what's cooking. // 3174 16th St. (Mission); nightly seatings (6:30 and 9pm) are $75/person, reservations are required now through Oct. 27th, overproofsf.com


The bar is central to the dining experience here, with Este Oeste's focus on sherry and gin informing the fare from the kitchen.
