It’s 7 a.m., 55° and headed to 68°. Details for the next 10 days are here.
It promises to be a day of protests today, starting this morning with a bus/eviction protest at 18th and Dolores, picking up again this evening at Dolores and 20th at 5 p.m. and ending at 151 Duboce Street. We will be at both so stay tuned.
Mexican food goes citywide. Michael Bauer posts his favorite Mexican dishes and La Taqueria on Mission near 25th Street wins for his favorite burrito with carnitas. I haven’t had a burrito there, but the tacos are wonderful. It is a sign of the times that all of Bauer’s other favorites are outside of the Mission. It is not so much a matter of fewer Mexican restaurants here, but many more have opened elsewhere and the sophistication level has gone way up. I still think it is hard to beat the Saturday breakfast at the Primavera market stand at the Ferry Building or the fish and grilled prawn tacos at Papalote, our neighborhood restaurant.
More places to eat. The SF Business Times reports that the Dinner Lab, a sort of pop-up dinner club already popular in New Orleans and Austin, has shown up in San Francisco. Pay a membership fee and get invites to dinners hosted by up-and-coming or already top chefs.
Enjoy the weekend!
