Candybar, SF report w/ pics

hhc | Mar 30, 200811:31 PM

We tried Candybar after eating at Tommy's Joynt:
This is in the NOPA area & we had to drive there. Only open for about 1 week so far.

We walk in to an empty place & the guy there asked us if we had reservations. We didn't & I asked for the window seats. It was fine.

We ordered:

Blood Orange Baked Alaska $9 -comes w/ candied fennel & honey comb. It's a tiny dessert, blood orange sorbet was fine & not bad. Candied fennel was boring & didn't see honey comb on a drizzle of honey. Anywhere place else in the entire SF Bay Area make a Baked Alaska?

Chocolate brioche w/ balsamic caramel ice-cream/lime yogurt $8. Balsamic caramel is a salted caramel ice cream was nice, chocolate brioche tasted like a warm chocolate cake. Just ok.

Windy got 2006 Accornero Brigantino Casorzo, Italy Malvasia di Casorzo $8.50 for a glass of this Bubble. I thought it tasted like a sparkly grape juice.

One unisex bathroom in the back to the left. Didn't see light switch only a bunch of lighted candles.

Some tables in the back. Many board games if you want to hang out.

Recommended probably if in the area, not worth a special trip.
