Rich Table is one of those restaurants that confounds.
In the best of ways.
What other place thinks of threading whole sardines through potato chips? Or baking levain bread with dough infused with Douglas Fir? Or tossing a tangle of pasta with sauerkraut and pastrami?
Only this San Francisco establishment founded by husband-and-wife chefs Evan and Sarah Rich.
No wonder this casual, relaxed place has earned a Michelin star.
Even before garnering that honor, Rich Table was always a tough place to get a reservation. It’s even more so now. But plan ahead to score a table and you will be richly rewarded, as my husband and I and our friends were on a recent Sunday night. We paid our own tab at the end, but Chef de Cuisine Brandon Rice did send out a parade of desserts on the house at the end.
