San Francisco’s Bistro Boudin Offers New Sourdough Dishes
Bistro Boudin at San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf has upped the sourdough factor on its summer menu.
A variety of new dishes highlight the tangy, wonderful bread made by the cafe’s Gold Rush-era bakery.
Look for Bistro Shrimp Salad ($14.95) with grilled avocado, tangerines, chopped romaine and cilantro vinaigrette piled into a crispy sourdough cup; Grilled Salmon Al Tagine ($25.95) with clams, spinach, cherry tomatoes, Moroccan olives and capers served with sourdough crostini; and Sourdough Gnocchi ($23.95) with decadent chunks of lobster in a creamy pesto sauce.
San Francisco Wine Crawl
Sure, you’ve heard of food truck crawls, where those culinary four-wheelers gather in one spot to ply their delicious wares. Now, get ready for a wine version of that.
SF Wine Crawl, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. July 24, affords you the chance to taste wines from 10 of San Francisco’s urban wineries.
Treasure Island is the location for this unique event — only appropriate since several wineries already make their home there. Sip wine, meet the winemakers and enjoy a breathtaking view of the Bay.
The event is accessible by car and #108 Muni bus.
Tickets are $40 per person; $60 VIP tickets include a VIP shuttle to ferry you around to each winery.
