Bone marrow – The Alembic

Bone marrow - The Alembic

The Alembic, San Francisco CA

Ugh, this was probably the worst Big Eat SF item I’ve had so far. And actually it was probably the worst bone marrow I’ve ever had too. I’m not sure they even roasted this thing! It was cold and spread like super thick chunky Crisco with added tissue and random globs. I was horrified at how undercooked this was that I left pretty much the entire thing on the plate. FAIL!

Breakfast platter – The WestWood

Breakfast platter - The WestWood
Levain bread, prosciutto, chevre, deviled eggs, brown sugar-glazed bacon, pickled vegetables, fresh fruit. $14
The WestWood, San Francisco CA

I am torn about this place. The food was decent, but the wervice was really mixed. I think the two owners(?) were running service that morning and the older white-haired man was really nice, but the younger dark-haired man was rude and unattentive. I liked the variety of this breakfast platter, but I’m still not certain that the cheese was actually goat cheese. I asked for confirmation, but the affirmative still seemed unsure. It’s also really dark in the back so you should request to sit outside or near the front if you want to enjoy the bright sunny weather for a leisurely weekend brunch. Otherwise, it feels like you’re dining in a cave.
