Tiki culture has long been a staple of the American bar scene.
An artichoke is a mystical and enchanting thing. So captivating that it appears in Greek mythology in the story of a beautiful woman named Cynara who was transformed into an artichoke. And its no wonder the artichoke gets so much acclaim and attention: it’s delicious, exotic, and even a little sexy.
It’s a classic American breakfast, hearkening back to the days of cowboys and ranch hands. And it’s no wonder. Steak and eggs are hearty and filling: that stick-to-your-ribs goodness that’ll keep you full and energized for long mornings on the range, or, in our case, picnicking in the park or nursing a hangover in bed.
Beacuse brunch is usually eaten later in the morning, you could technically count it as two meals. Plus, it’s most likely soaking up enough booze from the night before to take out a football player, so it’s go big or go home. We’re talking stick-to-your-ribs hash: corned beef, pork, or beef, and topped with an egg.
Tomatoes are the heart of summer. Here in San Francisco, we pride ourselves on the locally grown stuff–not those cookie-cutter, plastic looking tomatoes found on supermarket shelves. We’re talking juicy heirlooms, whether big, small, red, green, orange, yellow, round, flat, or lopsided.
Are you a brunch fiend, but tired of the standard bacon and egg plate? Are those hash browns leaving you more tired than inspired? Have no fear, “two eggs any style” can be much more exciting than what you’re used to.
The West and East Coasts are longtime seafood rivals: Who has the better lobster, the more superior oysters, or the freshest crabs? But there’s one thing we Westerners excel at, hands down, and that’s wild salmon.
Summer’s still hanging on, and although our gloomy San Francisco weather wouldn’t show it, that means summer fruits are still in season. We're specifically talking all those plump, juicy melons that are crowding farmers markets, and bursting with color and flavor.
