Perfect (or Not): Aster

We can blame Chad Robertson for setting a standard of perfection by consistently turning out perfectly chewy/crusty/memorable loaves at Tartine Bakery.  That bread made me think – when foodies make such a monumental deal about food, why shouldn’t we expect  perfection in every bite?  So, while others give you reviews, Perfect (or Not), launched on May 12, 2014, seeks perfection.  My stomach was […]

Perfect (or Not): Lunch @ Craftsman and Wolves

In pursuit of the perfect croissant, I took a reader’s advice and went to Craftsman and Wolves. The name, I’d read on CAW’s site, “is a nod to the craftsman and the numerous challenges that one faces when pursuing their craft.” How true, I murmured, my taste buds tingling in sympathy. Even if CAW’s grammar […]

Perfect (or Not): Place and Mission Pie

It’s a growing pet peeve of mine—glorious (if not perfect) food at many Mission restaurants, but a pace of dining more suitable to McDonald’s. In fact, Mission Local pointed out in a piece years ago that McDonald’s lets its customers occupy their tables longer than some of our better restaurants. Whenever I’m hustled out of […]

Perfect (or Not): Mission Croissants

Mission Local’s weekly column holding Mission cooks, bakers and bartenders to a higher standard – perfection. It was only as a woman d’un certain âge, as the French say, that I fell hard for croissants. As an impoverished student in France years ago, I was perfectly content with baguettes. But later in life, during a visit to Paris, […]

Yesterday’s breakthrough in community policing is today’s garden decor for San Francisco’s most notorious fraudster

A 1988 New York Times story noted that people approaching Officer Wayne Sato’s “koban” in Japantown sometimes mistook it for an instant photo-processing booth — harking to an era when San Francisco featured both kobans and photo-processing booths.  Most of you probably remember when people had cameras and those cameras had film. But kobans? Maybe not.  […]
