Went to the rosé tasting at Butterfly (P33) . Very crowded. Young hip crowd. Deejay. They didn’t ask for the ID they’d told me I had to bring.
Too crowded for my sensibilities. (I was tempted to ask Rob Lam if I could hide out in his kitchen and have his nibs ferry me tastes of rosé.)
Tasty, but. …
We split early and went down to …P5 for a no-reservation dinner at Lafitte, which opened in April.
They sat us at the counter where we could watch the action in the kitchen. Fun.
We shared an appetizer charcroute plate. (Amazing. Amazing. Amazing. Try it if Russell has it on his menu again.)
His nibs had roasted lamb sirloin (medium rare) because the house had sold out of scallops. I had seared Iberico pork belly and sweetbreads. (Tasty!)
For dessert, we shared an English pea panna cotta (amazing!).
We walked back home and up 223 (who’s counting) steps and then down the path to home sweet home.
Tuesday in San Francisco. …
