From My Menu

Chef Patrick Kelly reviews Marlowe burger at Marlowe
$$ | Breakfast/Brunch | Modern | American
"I’m partial because it’s in my neighborhood, but Marlowe’s burger and fries are the best. It’s a big, fat burger that’s simply done, and the kitchen always hits the right temperature. It’s served on a very simple Acme bun, but it comes together just right. Their French fries stay crispy forever, too."
Chef Melissa Perello reviews Smoked deviled eggs at Park Tavern
$$$ | Modern | American
North Beach
"These eggs have an intriguingly smokey flavor. I love the slight pickle and spice of the jalapeño, as well as the little, crisp bite from the bacon chip they place on top of the egg."
Chef Alexander Ong reviews "Poulet noir" at Park Tavern
$$$ | Modern | American
North Beach
"The Demons on Horseback are outstanding, but the "poulet noir" with black truffles, pearl onions, and stuffing is the star. Thank you to chef Jennifer Puccio and her staff."
Chef Arnold Eric Wong reviews English custard soldiers at The Cavalier
$$$ | Breakfast/Brunch | British
Union Square, SOMA
"These nutmeg, cream, and sugar soldiers are awesome. They have just the right portion of decadence. I can't decide what to order; I want everything on the breakfast menu. "
