San Francisco, CA 94111
SF Weekly's Description
Delicious food inspired by Southern barbecue is on offer in this small, chic downtown Financial District room. Wexler's new American menu changes seasonally. At lunch, sandwiches star (the pulled lamb is wonderful). At dinner, the smoky chicken liver mousse is superb, and the frequently changing plate of pork; the smoked chicken breast; and the brisketlike short ribs are standouts. Matt Wexler and chef Charlie Kleinman are serving intelligently rethought down-home cooking in an uptown setting.
Tips from foursquare
Barbecue goes upscale at this spot. Try their barbecued Scotch eggs, and or sip on a mint julep served in a frosty metal cup.
Taste the "pulled” lamb sandwich with the unusual mix of watermelon vinegar, pickled watermelon rind and red cabbage slaw. It's featured on Travel Channel's Best Sandwich in America.
This BBQ spot features a tasty "Mission Dog" with bacon, pickled fresno chilies, and caramelized onions. If you're in the mood to treat yourself, order up a root beer float.
