Last Night at Perbacco [San Francisco]

whiner | Jul 10, 2011 12:00 PM


Last night was the first night I've ever been there where it was not completely packed. It was mostly full, just not 'packed'. Also, it was already my favorite restaurant -- all things, including price, considered -- in San Francisco, but last night was the best meal there I've had yet. I had the risotto with porcini, corn, smoked pancetta, and caramelized onions as my appetizer and the veal chop with roasted baby turnips, roasted a strange type of whole onion, and fresh dandelion greens with a terrific balsamic reduction and amazing EVOO for my main course. Dessert was my standard -- the burnt caramel gelato. Just a remarkable dinner. I hope they are doing ok in business... but wow, what a dinner...
