Barolo in Pacifica

We went on Sunday night to a new restaurant in Pacifica. This is a huge deal for those of us in Pacifica as we are shy on truly Chowie places.

Barolo has been open about a month and we found it to be very good. It is owned by the owners of Vignette in San Francisco. I had the braised short rib over pureed carrots. The saltiness of the short rib was balanced nicely with the sweet carrot puree. My wife had the grilled flat iron steak, which came in slices over chunky mashed potatoes and gorgonzola. Everything was nicely presented and we both remarked on how well the portions were handled. Too many places like to load up a plate, and we both are preferential to rich food in small portions.

We also ordered the warm chococlate cake with port wine cherry sauce. It had an oozing chocolate center and was made that much richer by the port cherries.

I am hopeful that people make their way out to Pedro Point in Pacifica to give this place a chance. It's worth the trip.
