Wind Up Bird cocktail - Beretta
Wind Up Bird: Japanese whiskey, carpano bianco, curacao, salted cacao. $11
This cocktail was very herby and liqueury tasting and so it wasn’t my favorite. Although it wasn’t sweet per se, it was leaning toward that profile.

If you didn’t know that I love salumi, here’s proof! Hehe. Omg, this meat antipasti boards makes me SO hungry. Suffice it to say that every piece was joyfully devoured. NOMS!

Lamb chops – Beretta

Lamb chops - Beretta
With arugula and organic yogurt. $15
Beretta, San Francisco CA

Wow, these lamb chops were SO good! They were perfectly cooked, tender with a great lamb flavor. The lightly dressed arugula helped to cut the rich fattiness of the lamb, and the yogurt with basil chiffonade was a good flavor neutralizer. Noms!

Lone Wolf cocktail - Beretta
Lone Wolf – bourbon, lemon, averna, gomme, cardamom. $10
Beretta, San Francisco CA

Mmm, the cocktails at Beretta are usually very tasty. BUT our first cocktail, however, took forever to come out. I don’t know if the waitress forgot to ring it up or they lost the ticket, but she eventually came over to apologize for the long delay. Not a good way to start a meal. I hate poor timing!
