Basque and Single Malts...

Cary | Mar 9, 2005 11:57 PM

Working in the biotech corridor that is South San Francisco, there isn't really anything interesting/good to lunch or dinner besides some Mexican food. (Single malt scotch question at the end for the impatient)

Then I did some research and found the Basque Cultural Center. that has a restaurant, meeting area, handball courts, many things... Their menu is decently priced and their wines are almost all under $100 with some good variety with small names. I ate their for dinner tonight and was pleasantly surprised with the rabbit chasseur. The meal includes a BIG bucket of soup (I only had one bowl though), a salad, then rice/vegetables on the side of the main dish. All the dishes ranged from $14 to $21. A very reasonable alternative to the ubiquitous American chain shops. I had the 1999 Chat. Haut-Beausejour, from St. Estephe. It wasn't that great, soft/flabby, little fruit, and no fine structure, and very short finish. But it was only $35 for the bottle so can't complain that much. They have family style dinners for two that change depending on the day of the week that includes: soup, salad, 2 entrees, and ice cream. For under $25 bucks. Service was sufficient. Atmosphere is very festive and noisy. Dress code was very casual to some people in suits.

Are there any good/reasonably priced stores that sell single malt scotches and bourbons? Preferably south of downtown SF. I frequent KLwines in Redwood city already. Bev&Mo has some selection.
