It was our first night in San Francisco and we had already planned to visit Tyler Florence’s flagship restaurant. Wayfare Tavern San Francisco was booked weeks ahead via Open Table. We strongly suggest making reservations for Wayfare Tavern. It is located in the Financial District and can get super busy – even on a school night!
If you are ever stuck waiting for a table and the bar is full – pop over to Wexler or Irish Times for a pre-drink and than come back. The atmosphere inside is cozy, rustic, and filled with old school charms. Exposed brick walls, wooden tables and an open kitchen with bar seats was inviting and very entertaining.
We were seated in an intimate corner with some privacy and close enough to some kitchen action. As we watched Deviled Eggs (most popular item), Seared Octopus, Butter Lettuce Salad poured out meticulously, we secretly wonder if anyone would notice if we stole a bite here and there…
Seared Octopus 15: Tender octopuses, scallion, linguica, hollandaise, cippolini onion were filled with robust bbq flavors from the grill.
The Chicken Liver Pate made with saba balsamic jelly and arugula was sold out. Our server suggested the French Fried Oysters 12! Lightly breaded, plump juicy oysters were a close resemblance to the deep fried cauliflowers and served with tartar sauce, shaved cauliflower, lemon juice.
Wayfare Burger “Le Grand” 19 + sunny side up Petaluma egg 2: The patty is made from grass-fed proprietary grind, served with Marin brie, roasted onion, smoked bacon, and brîoche.
We felt dirty eating this. But we couldn’t put this Egg Slut down. As the yolk oozed and enveloped each bite, I was scared.
Please don’t send me to the principal’s office! I will be good tomorrow and drink some organic cold press juices. I will go for a morning run and do a juice cleanse when I get home. Promise! (Fingers crossed)
Our visions blurred as we tried to finish another hot-fresh-out-from-the-over Yorkshire Popovers… I don’t quite remember what happened the rest of the night. Excuse my food coma!
