In The House
Lunch today in the City with Keith and Jan at a little place they found called The House. A very small restaurant near the junction of Columbus and Broadway, serving a unique version of Asian Fusion in the heart of Little Italy.
The long narrow space is decorated with a considerable amount of original art, warm wooden tables and chairs, paper place mats and napkins. There isn’t much space, and you better be good friends with the person you’re sitting next to. Good thing I was sitting next to Gail.
The menu has a considerable variety, and the dishes are mostly designed for sharing. It’s many different things you already know put together in ways you haven’t imagined.
The food was inventive, different and scrumptious. We devoured all of it. The service was excellent, and the prices were quite reasonable.
The House doesn’t take reservations–when we left there was a line outside the door, San Franciscans who know a great meal when they find it.
