Fri 8th. Bill H took me to the Liberty Cafe a charming neighborhood spot in a Victorian house. It started out specialising in home cooking with meatloaf & apple pie. Now it leans towards California Cuisine with some homey touches. I had the mixed organic greens with crostini & goat cheese. Followed by grilled salmon served with yukon potatoes & pink grapefruit. A wonderful combination. Dessert was a truly home made cherry & apricot pie.
Tue 12th. Lunch with Bill T at Luna Piena (Full Moon) on Castro St. We sat in the patio garden & were glad of the sunshade. Our waiter was very dashing & French. We both enjoyed perfectly poached eggs with corned beef hash & a baby spinach salad.
Dinner with Dixie at Fringale a French restaurant in the SOMA area. Small attractive place with lovely lemon decor, a full bar & all French staff. We started with a white & green asparagus appetizer. Then Dixie had a steak while I enjoyed pork confit served with chopped cabbage etc.
Wed 13th. Max's Opera Cafe. A supposedly light meal with Bob L was quite substantial. We both had salads. I had the Cobb Salad which came with healthy helpings of turkey, avocado, mushrooms, bacon & blue cheese. Served with great french bread.
Tues 26th. Dinner with Freddie. Synchronicity. We both thought of this place at the same time. We had planned on Westlake Joe's but I suggested Daly City Lyons as an alternative. Freddie had thought of it too & brought coupons. It is a wonderful old fashioned coffee shop which are fast disappearing along with motherly waitresses. We both enjoyed excellent soup. I had cream of broccoli. Then prime rib with all the trimmings.
I ate out quite a lot in June but these were my birthday treats.
