Enjoy a bird’s eye view of San Francisco from Medjool Restaurant’s new rooftop terrace, where you can sit back with a delicious lunch as you take in the colorful sights from high above Mission Street.
The Mediterranean restaurant, a short drive from the Holiday Inn Civic Center, just started offering a new lunch service with the likes of a Medjool sampler platter ($13) with hummus, baba ghanoush, and tabouli; mixed green salad with pears, toasted almonds, blue cheese and shallot vinaigrette ($9.50); Kobe beef burger ($10.50); or fish and chips with house-made tartar sauce and fries ($10.50).
Lunch on the open-air terrace is available, 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Don’t forget to stop at the ATM first, though, as it’s cash only at this height.
Down on the Peninsula, Marché of Menlo Park has started serving lunch for the first time since opening nine years ago.
Monday through Friday, 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., enjoy lighter fare such as asparagus soup ($6); crab salad sandwich with avocado and aioli ($18); and duck confit salad with toasted walnuts ($15). There’s also a three-course, prix-fixe option for $30, with an additional $15 for paired wines.
In Burlingame, Medallion Steakhouse is getting in on the weekday lunch-time action, too.
The new lunch menu includes filet mignon tacos with cotija cheese and pear guacamole ($9); prawn and Dungeness crab Louie salad with asparagus ($15); a barbecue chicken pizza ($11); and a grilled chicken club sandwich with fries or a salad ($13).
Carnivores with big appetites can indulge in a 14-ounce, grass-fed New York steak for $34 or an 8-ounce, corn-fed filet mignon for $32.
If you’re craving a decidedly posh lunch, you’ll be glad to know that the glamorous Cyrus in Healdsburg will start serving lunch on Saturdays, beginning May 15.
The lunch menu will be the same as it is in the evening, with diners able to choose either a five-course ($102) or eight-course ($130) tasting menu.
