House “cappuccino” 1919 – Tosca Cafe

House cappuccino 1919 - Tosca Cafe
Marie Dufau Bas Armagnac, bourbon, Dandelion chocolate, ganache, organic milk. $12
Tosca Cafe, San Francisco CA

This boozy “cappuccino” was good, but I’m not convinced that it should be on the 7×7 Big Eat SF list. There are better cocktails in this city. Sometimes I wonder if 7×7 gets kickbacks from these restaurants to get items on their list. Hmm…

Roasted chicken for 2 – Tosca Cafe

Roasted chicken for 2 - Tosca Cafe
Ricotta, pine nuts, marsala. $48
Tosca Cafe, San Francisco CA

This was delicious! The breast wasn’t the most succulent roasted chicken I’ve had, but I loved the Italian flavors with the marsala sauce. I also thought it was super cute that they kept the chicken claws attached to the drums (sorry it’s cut off in the pic). Was it the best roasted chicken? No. But it was SO worth the relatively low $48 price tag for roasted chicken (for two people) in San Francisco.

Heirloom and Dirty Girl tomato salad – Tosca Cafe

Heirloom and Dirty Girl tomato salad - Tosca Cafe
Cucumber, dill-yogurt, pickled pearl onions, toasted sesame seeds. $16
Tosca Cafe, San Francisco CA

This salad was pretty tasty. It’s kinda weird that I liked the buttery croutons the best, and not the tomatoes, hehe. I’m such a crouton fiend! Really though, this salad was great and the dill yogurt was different and yummy.

Jimmy Nardello and shishito peppers – Tosca Cafe

Jimmy Nardello and shishito peppers - Tosca Cafe
Italian sweet peppers, red onion, farro, pickled chili. $10
Tosca Cafe, San Francisco CA

These were really tasty, and I actually really liked the farro in there. They added a nice texture and flavor to the peppers. Overall, I enjoyed the food at Tosaca Cafe, but our server was off. I felt like were either gonna do it her way, or she wasn’t having it. The timing was really off and she would disappear for long chunks.
