SF: Caffe D'Melanio - Argentinian-Italian with Friday night tango?

rworange | Mar 8, 200801:07 PM

Here's a place I don't think has been mentioned when people are looking for Argentinean food ... spelling that two ways for search purposes.

They are only open for dinner Thurs-Sat. Saturdays they have live jazz.

They also roast their own coffee and from what I've read it is good. There are fresh-baked scones for breakfast. If you are a student there is a 10 percent discount for lunch and dinner.

What seems interesting is the rotisserie chicken if they are making it Argentinian style.

The menu seems mostly Italian with a few Argentinian items like
- Enpanadas de Pollo o Carne (chicken or beef)
- Escabeche de Berenjena (Eggplant marinated in garlic, red pepper & olive oil)
- Mujadara (Spicy Rice)
- Bife de choriso y chimichuri con ensalada de papa

They get a lot of positive reviews on yelp. The sandwiches, smoothies and pastas seem to be favorites, as is the chicken.
