SF Weekly's Description

Housed in a turn-of-the-century brick building in which ships' engines were once built, Town Hall is an urbane, glamorous place whose setting feels like New England, while its new American menu betrays certain New Orleans touches (Sazeracs and tasso among them). We loved the duck and the butterscotch and chocolate pot de crème at this Financial District restaurant, but the rest of the menu can be uneven.

    Year after year, Town Hall maintains a prime status among SF's best restaurants. They have the best meatballs dish in town (roasted veal meatballs), and serve one of the best steaks (a Niman Ranch ribeye) pork chops (tasso-peanut crusted), and lamb shanks in town as well.

    New American dishes with a large dose of the South and New Orleans. Check out their Twitter feed (http://twitter.com/townhallBBQ) for info on the seasonal lunchtime BBQ.

    Doug Washington and the Rosenthal Brothers have gone on to open Salt House and Anchor & Hope since Town Hall, but the original is still the crown jewel in their SoMa mini-empire. [Eater 38 Member]

  • Epicurious on 08/25/10

    Meet-n-greet your neighbors, Southern-style, at a communal table in this trendy BBQ restaurant. Dishes like warm Bakewell cream biscuits with Smithfield ham and pepper jam are true comfort classics.

  • Foodspotting on 11/16/10

    Try the buttermilk fried chicken and spot it on Foodspotting!
