New Restaurants, Spring Menu

I went to the opening of the Tribune Tavern on Monday night and it was spectacular. The room is amazing- big booths with big tables that hold lots of food and wine, lots of nice details, stained glass, big wooden bar rails, etc. Huw Thornton’s food killed – ox tongue, rabbit rillette, and one of the best short ribs I’ve ever had. Check it out.

Lungomare is going strong after a month in operation. Now that the spring weather is here, enjoy Craig DiFonso’s impeccable seafood out on the terrace.

Speaking of terraces, Brotzeit Biergarten is projected to open may 18th. We’ll be serving up local(including a cusom Bavarian lager from Linden St.) and hard to find German beers, housemade sausages and grass fed burgers  right on the bay, about one mile south of Jack London Square.

Oh yeah, let’s not forget Chop Bar, we’re still pretty good too. Our spring menu is in full swing, so come by for Fava Risotto with Pea Shoot Puree and Oyster Mushrooms,or maybe some Roasted Asparagus with Housemade Coppa.

Next post I’ll have details of our veg Week prix fixe.

Even Better Tap Wine, Spring Is Coming

Hey, folks, it seems like its been an unusually long winter, but spring produce is finally trickling in. We’ve got Delta asparagus with our house cured coppa, Parmesan, and lemon vinaigrette. It’s in our new farro salad, too.

The folks at Urban Legend have informed us that adding 25% co2 to our nitrogen mix will keep our keg wine fresher. It seems the straight nitrogen can draw the natural co2 out of the wine, which makes it taste flat. Let us know if you notice a difference,
