What We Ate... At The Alembic

Monday, July 30

Dinner: The Alembic Bar, 1725 Haight Street; 415-666-0822

Last Monday, we decided to check out The Alembic, a trendy new bar in the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood of San Francisco.

What we ate:

  • Sliders: Moroccan spiced lamb burgers with harissa aioli and olive tapenade. Tasty, but I wish that we got more than two burgers for $10.

  • Stout-braised oxtail: with melted cheese and roasted peppers on toast. Good, but also a bit expensive.

  • Herb and Spice Dusted Fries: with lemongrass, garlic, and aromatic aioli.

  • Spaetzle: with braised rabbit, bacon, gruy√®re, dijon mustard and tarragon. Absolutely delicious, our favorite dish of the evening.

Doctor, where did you guys go?

Please tell me that you've eaten in the past week. It's not healthy to skip that many meals!

Dr. No,

Of course we ate during the past week. Unless otherwise specified, the default meal is always the Applebee's Riblet Platter.
