An Atlantan in the Bay: Blah Brunch

Farm : Table :: Lower Nob Hill/TenderNob, San Francisco, CA, USA

I took a friend here for brunch before she left for the airport as it was right across the street from my apartment. This place was always packed on the weekends so I assumed that it would be amazingly delicious. That being said, it was not quite up to my expectations. I ordered the following:

Salmon Toast: smoked salmon on a dill cream spread with sprouts
– dill spread did not overwhelm me with the taste of … all herb. Dill in particular, can be very strong so the balance needs to be just right.
– toast was not soggy meaning it was fresh made and came out quick
– side salad was a nice refreshing touch given that the toast itself was on the heavier end of the meal

– it’d be nice to have a little more salmon. I realize smoked salmon is expensive, but even the bagels in NYC have more salmon and that’s a staple for the city. Not to mention, the price for this salmon toast was equivalent if not more than what I would get for a similar item.

The one thing that I didn’t quite like was the limited seating. Inside had one large table with wall seats (as in a bench built into the window). Private seating was located outside with maybe three small tables. If the weather is bad which, can actually happen in the Bay, it doesn’t bode well for eating in (or out rather). Given that I live across the street, my toast probably would be able to survive the soggy-test had I decided to take my order to-go.  Overall rating: ***.5 (3.5 stars)

Overall, it’s nice but I wouldn’t wait in line here on the weekend for this.  You can find them here off of Post Street near Union Square.  I wouldn’t walk through the Tenderloin to get here if you’re in the SOMA/Civic Center area though!
