SF Weekly's Description

The venerable Fly Trap received a gustatory jolt when Hoss Zare moved in, bringing his Persian-Mediterranean fireworks. Check out the pistachio meatballs with harissa-honey glaze, the roasted marrow bones with bergamot preserves, or the squash stuffed with quince, orzo, and cinnamon. The Mediterranean wine list features bottles from Israel, Lebanon, and Corsica in addition to all the usual wine regions. The Fly Trap side of the equation is reflected in the venue's vintage pressed-tin ceilings, burnished woodwork, and classic San Francisco drinks. At lunchtime, Zare offers an inexpensive, innovative menu of Persian wraps, soups, and salads.

    Don’t miss “Meatball Mondays,” offering a weekly changing stuffed meatball, accented with herbs, dried fruit and chutney ($25).

    Chef/owner Hoss Zare defines hospitality. His restaurant is unlike any other in the city with its big, bold, unfamiliar flavors in the historic setting of the Fly Trap. [Eater 38 Member]

    7x7's Big Eat 2012 says the pistachio meatballs are delicious. Yum!

  • Danielle I. on 01/25/10

    Get the Minted Memory cocktail!

  • Two lighter styled red wines worth trying (attractive prices too!): Librandi's '06 gaglioppo grape variety from Ciro DOC (Calabria) & Thevenin's '05 pinot noir from the Cote Chalonnaise (Burgundy).
