Morning Menu at Pearl | Richmond District - San Francisco

Melanie Wong | Jun 17, 201801:20 AM    

Pearl is the new cafe and seafood restaurant from the team behind Pizzetta 211 around the corner. It debuted for dinner service on May 29, then a week later initiated a morning menu.

I popped in early Thursday morning before an appointment and kind of marveled at the full-blown interior and bar compared to the barebones kitchen and seating at Pizzetta. I declared to the barista that I had 16 minutes and asked if that would be enough time to get a macchiato and a bagel to eat-in. He graciously said that it would not be a problem.

Luckily there was no one ahead of me, and I was served promptly. Quite frankly, I would not have been willing to pay $5 for a bagel and schmear (wood-fired or not), unless there was time to take a seat and relax a moment.

The macchiato, expertly made with Andytown coffee, was dense and creamy.

The housemade "everything" bagel, dubbed as San Francisco style because of the sourdough rise, was fired in the wood-burning oven. Crisp crusting and somewhat chewy, the interior of the very fresh bagel was soft and airy. Without the density of a boiled bagel or the flavor of barley malt, this bagel was indeed its own thing. Slathered generously with fluffy cream cheese, this did taste good and made for a satisfying start to the day.
