San Francisco Dine About Town 2010: Sauce

I very luckily realized in the middle of the week that it was the FINAL week of San Francisco Dine About Town where you can get a 3 course meal for $35 at some of the city's best restaurants. I wish that I would have figured it out sooner so that we could have enjoyed two meals in the city but at least we had one.

I choose the restaurant due to their online menu selection offerings. Too bad for those places that didn't list anything because they were not even in the running. The finalist for this year was the restaurant Sauce. It COMPLETELY exceeded our expectations. The one drawback was that we had a tough time parking- it is down by the Symphony and Ballet, both of which had performances that night- and it was after they had both started at 8 pm and we arrived just after 8. We spent 20 minutes looking for parking and FINALLY found one so that we were still on time for our reservation.

The food was INCREDIBLE. I would call it contemporary, upscale American cuisine. I have even included the wording from the restaurant of the dishes. William and I each shared our appetizers and desserts and then we each got the same entree. We loved every dish and will definitely return on another occasion.
