Bistro SF Grill - 2819 California St.

Cynsa | Dec 23, 201005:05 PM     2

At 2 o'clock this afternoon, Seni, Hashim, and Gino opened the door to Bistro SF Grill and welcomed all to tasty burgers, serving from 10 am to 11 pm. On Thanksgiving Day, paint and upholstery began to update the 1929 fixtures of the former Annie's Bistro.
For today's opening, we ordered the generous Zapata, Geisha, and Balkan burgers - all delicious - with a double side order of thick-cut fries, sodas, teas, and a small Black Walnut Sundae. The Balkan is lamb and veal, well-spiced and served with both yogurt and an onion pepper relish. The multi-grain whole wheat buns are baked in Berkeley and will be followed soon by Ciabatta. Come here and eat well.
We know Seni at our neighborhood farmers market on Sundays at Divisadero and Grove Sts. - where we have enjoyed the Grilled Burgers and the olala and merquez sausage.
These pics are an afterthought - we were too enthusiastic to dig in to the huge burgers; some of us needed reviving after last-minute holiday shopping.
