Sons and Daughters Visit 2 — San Francisco (4/2012)



Again, I managed to get in with a last-minute reservation made the same morning for an early dinner.  My prior visit was before they received their Michelin star.  Their menu approach has changed a little since the last visit.  Instead of pairs of choices, they offer a tasting menu for the season.  On the flip side, they offer a vegetarian tasting menu, where any meats/fish/shellfish ingredients are substituted.  Otherwise, the menus are very similar.  They also let me switch out parallel items from the vegetarian menu to the regular menu.  I swapped the mussel course and the pork belly course, but otherwise I was on the regular menu.

Sons and Daughters — San Francisco (9/2011)


I went to Sons and Daughters at the last minute.  It was Friday night and I could get in for an early dinner.  It is a set menu, but for 5 courses, you choose from two offerings.  I liked the textures and flavors of the food.  At first, I thought the portions were going to be too small.  But, at the end, I was content.  I started the meal with a glass of Cremant D’Alsace sparkling rose.  I did not go with the wine pairings.  They also offer several wines by the glass, surprising for such a small place.
