NOPA - great argument for cooking at home [San Francisco]

larochelle | Apr 4, 2007 08:58 AM

Friday night around 11pm, four of us stopped in at NOPA for a snack and cocktail. Sure, the space is nice. Sure, the service was attentive. Sure, the food was good. Sure, the cocktails were balanced and not too sweet (a common problem).

We had the flatbread which was tasty without being spectacular. The tagine was yummy. Our veggie was nice.

But, really? Most of the food is very basic and I can make this stuff or similar at home. I left thinking "Damn, I gotta have more dinner parties!" (which we proceeded to do the very next evening)

And I was also kinda embarrassed since our guests included a chef from LA who was like "This is THE hot new place in SF? What the hell?"
