Bar Tartine

My family and I went to Bar Tartine on my last night in San Francisco. We left stuffed and satisfied. The restaurant has a definite light, hip San Francisco feel present in the restaurant’s design and transcending into their service and dishes. The dishes are unique, the best by far being the beef tartare flatbread; some dishes, like the lobster mushrooms, were disappointing.

Overall, I would return to Bar Tartine, but not for my last meal in SF. The bread, wheeled over from Tartine Bakery, is obviously superb. The cultured butter was better than the more eccentric lard.
