Looking For Dishes w/ Sherry Wine Sauce

chelliee | Sep 9, 200503:08 AM

Hello all!

I have an absolute love for any dish that has sherry wine sauce in it and have been on the search for restaurants that offer dishes cooked in this sauce. It seems to be present in restaurants that have seasonal menus, but if there are restaurants that always have it on the menu, I'll be a frequent customer! I've had sherry wine sauce at the following restaurants -

1) Atrium on California St. (no longer on menu)
Half chicken on garlic mashed potatoes, portebello mushrooms in sherry wine sauce.

2) The Elephant Bar (no longer on menu)
Noodles with mushrooms in sherry wine sauce.

3) Zarzuela on Hyde/Union St. (no longer on menu)
Slices of chicken on mashed potatoes in sherry wine sauce.

I just noticed that a dish is being offered at Oola with the sauce in it. If anyone knows of any restaurant that offers a dish with sherry wine sauce, I would be VERY excited to learn of it! Those located in SF and in the Bay Area is good.
Thank you!

p.s. Does anyone know how to make this sauce? I tried it once.. did not know which Sherry bottle to buy. There were choices of dry sherry or cream I think, and I went with dry. The resulting sauce tasted nothing like those I've had in restaurants. :(
