By my estimate, I had sixteen perfect sweet apricots in…
I had the best dinner last night! After work, Rob and I went with some co-workers to Slow Club on Mariposa and 18th. I had been to this restaurant for lunch before but not dinner. Their specialty is using in-season produce and ingredients.
The lower mission location is definitely out of the way, but this restaurant is well worth the trip. It has all the great food and atmosphere of Foreign Cinema but more mellow patrons and better prices.
My favorite last night was an incredible salad of hearts of escarole topped with shaved sunchokes, pecorino romano & black truffle cream dressing. I could eat nothing but that salad for the rest of my life. I followed that with grilled flatbread covered in feta and nettles. I finished with a chocolate mousse cake and bites of someone else’s really good banana bread pudding. It was perfect!
