coco500… again

by brendan on January 24, 2007

i think i’ve written about coco500 on more than one occasion, and it has officially become my favorite place to eat in san francisco – loretta keller (no relation to thomas) is my new hero. we ate there again last night (our first official dinner without the little one) and had another great meal. the food is simple, fresh, and excellent. it also helps that it is 1/2 a block from our house, which makes ducking out pretty easy.

food of note was the truffle oil and mushroom flat bread, the house mustard that comes with the duck pate plate, the white anchovies in the salad, the roasted marrow bone appetizer, the peanut butter cups, and a floral and fiery grappa. the place was a mad house, since the fancy food show was wrapping up yesterday (i had a pass, but didn’t attend – fodder for another post) and there were a bunch of foodies in town. i was sad to see the duck pot pie off the menu, but hope it returns.

we’ve decided this will be our place to grab a drink and quick dinner at the bar when the mood strikes, and I couldn’t be happier.
