At My Venues

Fried chicken

"I love this place for late night fried chicken that goes perfectly with their superb dirty rice, collard greens, and craft cocktails. Make sure you grab one of the bottles of hot sauce they provide and douse your chicken."

"It has thin, crispy skin and the house-made hot sauce is great. And it's right on the water—such a gorgeous space and full of whiskey to boot."
Muffaletta
$$, Full Bar, Whisky Bar, Southern / Soul, Cocktail, Embarcadero
"Continuing on with my FGF-ness. The Hard Water muffaletta is jam-packed with Provolone, cured meats, and a pickled vegetable tapenade. The house-baked bread is oh-so-buttery and delicious. I just got a quarter-sized sando and that was plenty. Besides, muffuletta = muffin top, so I'd pass on the half size unless you're planning on sharing or you're feeling like a lil' Miss Piggy."
