Cafe Divine - North Beach

pm | Feb 19, 2006 12:19 AM

Stumbling about, looking for something new but ready to go to the old standbys if necessary, and not looking to spend a fortune, we noticed Cafe Divine - on Stockton, a block above Columbus (just at the corner past Mangarosa). A great choice.

The menu had quite a selection of pizza, panini, salads, main courses, and so on. The wine list was reasonable - most in the $20s, and of resepctable quality for the price.

We ordered:
(1) Blue Cheese/pear/walnut salad. Not the best rendition ever, but a generous $5 portion. It was perfectly acceptable.

(2) Lamb Shank with roasted vegetables. A tad overroasted, flavor very good. It came with au gratin potatoes, which were really tasty. $17.

(3) Roasted Chicken. Tasty and moist, sauce was very good. $13 (?)

(4) An argentino malbec. $20. Maybe it was $3 in Argentina, who knows. A palatable red for $20 that we enjoyed enough in a restaurant, no matter the retail price, was a bargain.

They also have Sun-Thurs multicourse meals for $15, including the tax. I was tempted to order the BLT (I think it was called "knife and fork BLT") but wanted something heartier.

Service - pleasant. The place reminded me of a homey parisian place, with say, half the tables. The food was homey, and tasty. Dinner for 2 that we enjoyed, didn't overeat, leisurely-paced, with a drinkable bottle of wine - $60 even plus the tip.
