A16: Polenta and pizza

San Francisco, February 4, 2009
  • A 16: 2355 Chestnut Street, San Francisco; tel. 415.771.2216

  • FOR TOO LONG we've been forgetting about this fine Naples-style restaurant in San Francisco's Marina district, so convenient to us when we're driving into The City for a show, or out of The City after a day. Walk-ins can pretty well count on a seat at the bar or a bar table at 5:30, just the time for a pre-show supper or for sitting out what's sure to be a traffic jam in Marin county.

    Yesterday I started with a bowl of chestnut polenta with mushrooms, a poached egg, and well-seasoned, fresh tomato sauce, while Lindsey ate a more healthful beet and arugula salad; then we split a mushroom pizza with ricotta salata and olives. Delicious.
