Hayes Street Grill

Joy | Aug 31, 200507:11 PM

I ate lunch today at the Hayes Street Grill. I know there's been some heated words here about this place, but I really enjoyed it. I had the sand dabs, which were fantastic. I only recently discovered this fish -- I had them for the first time just last week at Tadich -- but these were really amazing. I'm not a big fan of most types of fish, especially the plain white types, but I could eat these every day.

Like Tadich, Hayes St lightly breads and (I think) pan fries them. There was a light sauce (meuniere, I believe the menu said) which really added to the flavor. Somehow the combination of the slightly crunchy outside, the tasty white filet, with a little bit of sauce makes for a perfect combination of tastes. Hayes St's version was even tastier than Tadich's, plus their fries are nice and crunchy.

I was so in love w/ my plate that I forgot to taste my lunching companion's dish, so I can only report on the dabs, but if they do anything else as well I will be very happy on return trips.
