I don’t usually use this space to plug other restaurants, but I went by B-Side Barbecue today and it blew my mind. If you haven’t heard, it’s the new barbecue place from Tonya Holland of Brown Sugar Kitchen. First, the space, which was done by Jeffrey Ruiz (he did our interior too), looks great. Polished concrete floor, lots of rustic wood and old pictures of African-American cowboys. Then the food. The ribs and brisket were smoky and fork tender, the cornbread light and crumbly, the mac and cheese smooth and creamy. There is a short but well curated list of wines and microbrews. It’s on San Pablo at 33rd, go check it out.
