My companion & I enjoyed all of our dishes immensely. Started with duck fat fries and the wood-fired mussels with chorizo. Both were addictive and we almost licked the bowl with the mussels. Then we had the week's special pasta - spinach macaroni with black chantrelles, hazelnuts, slow poached egg, ricotta solata, and orange mushroom sauce and the braised beef short ribs. Great flavor profile on the pasta and the beef was incredibly tender and juicy. Finished with the Herbs & Thistle: guinness gingerbread, fernet ice cream brown butter toffee sauce, spicy pecans and the Breakfast of Champions: cinnamon toast ice cream, oatmeal ice milk, bourbon caramel fried french toast. Herbs & Thistle had a warming, comfort food quality, perfect for a cold SF night and the Breakfast of Champions was like eating a bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch. All in all a lovely dinner and fully satisfying.
We went on a Tuesday night and sat at the bar. We went early to catch happy hour and a slight crowd developed around 6:30pm, but the place was completely empty at 8:30pm and the restaurant never filled up. So if you want to avoid the crowds, definitely go on a Tuesday night.
