Surprised this place hasn't been mentioned... The Chicken here is pretty darn good.

Full post with pics:

Park Tavern is a new American Restaurant from the team at Marlowe. It replaced old school favorite Mooses, right on Washington Square in San Francisco's North Beach district.
The place was packed early on and is already a hot spot.

Park Tavern serves up excellent, classic American food in a beautiful location that will surely be a hit for years to come. Two page wine list with glasses from $7, bottles from $31.

Mojito ($12) - was strong and perfectly balanced, they know how to make drinks here.

Excellent, complimentary warm Acme epi bread.

Brussels Sprout Chips ($6) are a classic dish moved over from Marlowe, light, greasy, perfect.

Lemon & basil leaf, burrata ($12) featured homemade mozzerella cheese that was slightly runny along with deep fried lemon wheels that made an interesting but workable combination.

Manila clam chowder, shaved bottarga & chives ($12) was creamy and full of flavor, all in all very good.

Deviled Eggs, bacon, pickled jalepeño & chives ($1.50 ea) are a must order. We were not fans of deviled eggs, but with one bite we were believers.

Petit "Poulet Rouge" Bloomsdale spinach & Peewee potatoes ($24) was a cornish game hen presented at the table facing upright with a tableside sauce pour. This chicken was very tender and juicy and a must order. The bloomsdale spinach and kiwi potatos were also excellent. This dish gives Zuni Cafe a run for their money.

Grilled pork chop, Italian butter bean piston, dinosaur kale, toasted garlic & chili flakes ($24) was cut in two and perfectly cooked to a juicy medium rare. A must get for pork fans like us.

Creekstone NY Steak, red wine jus, Mangalitsa butter & french fries ($29) featured two triangles of medium (slightly pink in the middle) tender meat with angular charcoal grilling embeded on the surface. Excellent french fries and a very robust sauce.

Special of the Day: Brussel Sprout Hearts ($7) were sauteed with lemon and cheese, a very nice side dish.

Fig & apple crisp ($7) Whole lemon gelato took about 15 minutes to arrive, hot out of the oven, but worth the wait due to the very fresh fruit and tasty crumble. The gelato was first class.

Birthday Cake - November ($7) Casey's carrot cake was the cake of the month and a great version of the classic. Better than most people expect.

Mendocino uni, butter lettuce, chili & avocado oil ($11) - Simply did not work. They need to perform some surgery on this dish.
