Bulleit bourbon, bitters, luxardo cherry. $14
The View, San Francisco CA
The views from this bar are definitely breathtaking, but you certainly pay the price with the drinks. I guess it’s actually normal hotel drink prices, but it kind sucks that because the lounge is so spread out, it’s very difficult to get prompt service.
Barley, English peas, pea tendrils. $32
Aziza, San Francisco CA
Wow, I loved this. The sauce was especially delicious and the plate was beautiful! The lamb tasted great but it came out more rare than I wanted. I couldn’t eat much of the center of the loin portion.
Concord grape cocktail: elderflower, peat smoke, laphroaig, scotch. $12
Dijon butter, New York rye, mixed greens salad. Happy hour $6
Farallon, San Francisco CA

The charcuterie here is amazing! Everything is made in house and the quality is wonderful. The chicken liver mousse was definitely my favorite especially with a dollop of the marmalade on top. The bartenders were also very friendly and professional and make some killer cocktails.
