SF Chowhound made it to Babbo

MSK | Oct 31, 2005 07:19 PM

After viewing all the chatter here, we had to try it. Landed at JFK at 8PM and called on the way from the airport in the hopes of a late night, last minute res. They said they had nothing open but we decided to take our chances anyway. I mean, how busy could they be at 10:30 on a Wed. night??
Well........We got there to find an hour wait. Even that late on a weeknight.Don't these people work??? I guess we keep earlier hours in SF in general. Since it was 3 hours earlier our time and we had no where else to go, we decided to go for it.
We are so glad we did! It only took 1/2 hour to get a table but it was in the front next to the bar. I guess we could consider ourselves lucky and we would have no former experience to compare it with so it was a fine spot to people watch.
The food and service was fabulous (we closed the place and went through 3 servers but all were friendly and efficient). The menu was unique and everything we tried was wonderful.......Grilled Octopus, Beet Salad,Mint Love Letters, Pumpkin Lune, a Grilled Prawn special entree and CHOCOLATE for dessert.

Thanks Chowhounds for the wonderful lead!
