While visiting here in San Francisco, I ventured out to Wayfare Tavern in the Financial District with a few friends last night. I was impressed as soon as we walked in – it is definitely a classy tavern!
The service was five star and the choices on the menu were mouth watering. If you ever do visit this tavern, I highly recommend that you never turn down the fresh pop overs which are so buttery and fluffy! They reminded me of my mothers yorkshire puddings.
I started out with the Spring Carrot Soup. It had roasted pineapple pulp, carrot fritters, shaved country ham and was topped with some finely chopped chives.
The soup was refreshing and rich. I loved the addition of the roasted pineapple pulp and carrots fritters.
I would order this soup again and I think it went well with my next course, which was the Ahi Tuna Carpaccio with petit potatoes.
This place is a keeper and one to remember when I return to San Francisco for its soup!
The only thing I would do next time is to ask to sit downstairs as it seemed more lively and more conducive to people watch!
