Myriad Gastro Pub – Small Plates Delight

first_imgAnd it still is! (Sorry for the dark pics – the lighting was not conducive to taking them.) It’s a grass fed patty, with loads of flavor; besides the beef being beefy, it’s slathered in their secret “MGP Sauce” – which concoction I’m pretty sure means “Ketchup and Mayo” – but it’s good! – and topped with cheddar cheese. Served on a delightfully squishy seeded brioche bun, and with really great steak fries on the side. It also came with pickley things. I want to say this is maybe my 3rd or 4th favorite burger right now.But I’m getting ahead of myself, with all the excitement of the burger. We started off with the deviled egg:Deviled egg.Note that is singular. Deviled EGG. Cut in half. Yes, it’s on the “Snacks” menu, but an egg split in half (that’s mine, above) is really more like a nibble. It needed salt, too, but the yolk blended with salsa verde was nicely creamy and the radish added a good crunch. Still, I would have liked to have been told “Hey, if you’re sharing that, you might want to order two.” Who eats half a deviled egg, fer chrissakes?We also ordered the Market Salad, which this night was composed of lacinato kale, pomegranate, persimmon, Pt. Reyes blue cheese, and spiced pepitas, in a port vinaigrette.Market salad.Beautiful! We loved the mix of the crunchy pepitas with the earthiness of the kale, the tart pom arils, the salty/funky cheese, and sweetish persimmons. It was perfectly dressed, too, and the BF tried to mimic the vinaigrette at home the next night, but forgot the port. You gotta have the port.For my main, I had the grilled hanger steak with patatas bravas, cotija, romesco, salsa verde, and grilled spring onions.Hanger steak.This was delicious, although the steak was a bit chewy – but it’s a hangar steak, and you have to expect that. Really good sauces, and the potatoes were again, perfectly fried. Lots of flavor on this plate. I felt that I would have liked maybe another slice of the steak, but all in all, I enjoyed this quite a bit.And because we’re oinkers, and because I owe it to Mission Local readers, we also ordered the Cheesy Anson Mills Grits as a side (as opposed to the small plate that comes with spicy shrimp.)Mills grits.Cheesy goodness, but not too cheesy; they actually tasted like grits. For me they needed a bit of salt, and then they were perfect.We each had a delicious Barbera. The BF doesn’t usually drink wine with dinner but he liked mine so much he ordered a glass too. Myriad actually does a nice job with its cocktails, especially since they don’t have a liquor license.   They get away with a lot, using port, bubbly, amaros and soju, and come up with some great combinations. They’ve also got a tasty little wine list, with Spanish, Italian, and French offerings.On my second visit, I went with a friend, and we pretty much ate our way through the rest of the menu. I started with a cocktail, the Old Timer – Dolin Blanc, lime, thyme, Carpano Antica, Angostura Bitters. I asked the bartender if it was sweet, and he said it was, a little, but that he could make it less so for me. And he did.  It was a good drink, perfectly balanced tart, sweet, and bitter.My friend had a Spanish Albariño.Wine and cocktail.We shared a couple of snacks, a couple of small plates, and then split a main. We started out with the pot o’ pickled veggies and house-made potato chips…chips and pickled vegetables.The veggies were very crisp, and not too sour, as I often find pickled vegetables. We really loved them. The chips were lightly spiced and came with a with tart horseradish-chive crema – good chips, if a little dark. A nice start.Next, we got the Jersey wedge:Wedge salad.I’d actually had this salad the very first time I came here, and adored it. The BF wasn’t as thrilled as, for him, wedge means blue cheese. Their wedge is the typical iceberg lettuce, but with a smoky Thousand Island dressing, pickled onions, bacon, croutons, and shredded dry jack. It’s refreshing, crunchy, and the smoked paprika is genius with the bacon and onions. A great salad, and from now on I’ll never not order it again.Next up, potted chicken-liver mousse.Chicken liver mousse.Served in a cutesy canning jar, topped with a port-wine onion jam and served with crostini – dreamy and creamy. I’m a sucker for livery mousses, and this was a good one.Our last small plate was the crispy fried chicken sammies, topped with a creamy Mexican cole slaw, drizzled with a little honey and chipotle mayo, and more of those pickled veggies (we wished they’d told us we were already getting pickled veggies when we ordered them as a starter. They’re good but we didn’t need two orders.) The fried chicken was crispy and juicy, though it needed a little salt, for me. (I know that’s a running theme for me, but please people – season your food!)Chicken sammies.Aren’t they too cute? Super crunchy!And once again, we got the side of cheesy grits, because my friend had not had them and I can’t say no to cheese.For our main, we split the salmon.Salmon and lentils.Oh my! This was the best of any of the entrées I’ve had here. It came with crispy guanciale, a lentil ragout, cooked with sherry, whole grain mustard a fabulous aioli, and topped with small herb salad. Fantastic! The salmon was crispy but also tender – just perfectly cooked. And I loved the earthiness of the tender/firm lentils. Really a great fall dish, which I don’t usually expect from salmon.We were more than full, but my friend had a hankering for dessert, and apparently I can’t say no to that either….Apple crisp.It was apple and dried cranberries, with a pecan crumble, and caramel/crème fraîche ice cream. So very good, and I don’t even care about dessert, and even less about a crumble. It took a little while to come, but our bartender took it upon himself to apologize and treat us to a tawny port to go with the sweet.Tawny PortSo nice! Above and beyond the call of duty, but very appreciated.I’m not sure if this is a destination restaurant, but it’s a really decent neighborhood spot, especially the snacks and small plates, and if they change up the entrées some, I think they’d be golden. And ok, sure: A gastropub! I hope they get busier, because sometimes that’s what feels is missing here, the buzz of people. Read more Mission Local Reviews  – Find Out where to Go and What to Eat when You Get There Myriad has only been around about a year and a half, but it somehow feels like it’s been here longer. It moved into the old Nombe space, and dolled the place up. It’s billed as a gastropub, which to me means it’s a pub, but with good food. That’s not quite the vibe I get, though I do know that that term is thrown about quite wildly these days. The bar area is a little cold for my taste, while the dining room – a long narrow room done in burnt-orange, brown, olive green shades, with a flowery, carpeted wall that reminds me of a dress I had in the 7th grade, and wrought iron chandeliers – has more warmth; it’s a nice mix of rustic 70s, industrial/modern. There are a couple of long tables for bigger parties in the front windows on either side of the door, and they also have outside seating now, though I swear I’ve never seen anyone out there.As for the food (and that’s what we’re here for, isn’t it?), Trish Tracey, formerly of Thirsty Bear, conceived an international menu of snacks and casual but elevated main plates. The website says the menu changes daily, but what struck me when the BF and I came to eat a couple of weeks ago was that many items on the menu were the same as when we first visited: the deviled eggs, housemade chips, the lamb sandwich, the Jersey wedge, cochinita pibil (which I didn’t love when I had it)…. I would have thought there would be more new items.To be honest, though, some of these dishes do deserve to still be on the menu. The burger, for instance. The BF had the burger the first time we came, all those months ago, and then again on our visit for this review, because he couldn’t remember it. I could. It was great.Myriad burger.

City took away 1000 SF trash cans and now returns many to

first_imgGordon said that while Recology services the cans on Mission Street twice a day – before dawn and in the late afternoon – Public Works or Recology will respond to 311 service requests to empty overflowing cans in addition to the routine servicing.Public Works will also monitor the program’s effectiveness by tracking 311 service requests and using on-site evaluations to determine whether the additional cans actually result in less street-dumping and littering. If successful, the program will likely be implemented in other other neighborhoods.“Its not as if the streets are really clean without the trashcans,” said Ronen in reference to past trash can cut-backs. But whether the new cans will curb the Mission’s litter problem remains to be seen. This past weekend, the Mission made headlines after Dolores Park was left trashed on a particularly sunny Saturday despite dozens of trashcans lining its perimeters.Ronen called the trashy turnout at Dolores Park “unfortunate” and said that part of her effort is to raise awareness around littering and to teach community members how to use the trash cans appropriately.“We don’t know if adding more cans will help or hurt,” said Gordon, adding that requests from the community speak in favor of more trashcans.  “At the end of the day, the trash doesn’t end up on the sidewalk by itself – people toss it on the ground.”Gordon said that the solution to littering is to “change behavior.” Still, by providing “people with a more convenient way to throw out their fast food wrappers, soda cups and cigarette packs the right way,”she said, “maybe they will and the amount of litter will be reduced.”The pilot was launched in conjunction with an “intensive month-plus cleanup, outreach and enforcement campaign” in the Mission District, according to a Public Works press release.  That effort is focused on the Mission and Valencia Street corridors, from 15th to 20th streets, as well as the 16th Street corridor from Mission to Guerrero streets.The Mission Giant Sweep entails onsite inspections by the Public Works Outreach and Enforcement Team, who will also provide educational materials to “inform property and business owners about code requirements” in an effort to keep their properties and surrounding sidewalks clean.“We all need to take better care of our parks and neighborhoods and public spaces,” said Ronen. “We have to realize that the impact that we have.” The San Francisco Department of Public Works estimates that there are currently about 3,200 city-owned cans spread throughout the city, down from some 5,000 in 2007.Currently in its pilot stage, the  “Yes We Can!” initiative is a collaboration between Ronen, the mayor, and Public Works, beginning with the addition of 38 bins next to “bus stops, schools and other places where people congregate,” according to Ronen.The District 9 Supervisor said that she herself has been frustrated by the lack of trashcans in the neighborhood that she governs.“What’s always driven me crazy [is] when I have a piece of trash in my hand and I walk blocks and there’s nowhere to throw away my trash,” she said. “On my first weeks [in office], I met with Mohammed Nuru, [director] of DPW and I said, ‘I want more trash cans in the Mission.’”The new bins will be placed on Mission Street between 14th Street and Cesar Chavez streets, doubling the total number of receptacles there for a total of 73.“We now have four cans at or near each corner of the intersections,” said Gordon. Trash talk takes real reporters, join Mission Local now.  Mission District Supervisor Hillary Ronen on Tuesday rolled out a new city-funded initiative to combat littering along Mission Street by installing some three dozen new trashcans along the corridor.“We know that Mission Street has a serious litter problem – our crews clean there daily,” said Public Works Spokesperson Rachel Gordon.Ronen called the six-month program an “experiment” that counters the city’s efforts over the last decade to remove a total of some 1,000 trashcans in a bid to improve San Francisco’s sanitation. At the time, having the cans in place was thought to encourage illegal dumping and to attract scavengers rummaging through the cans and scattering their contents along the city’s sidewalks.“The reason trashcans were removed is because they were a magnet for more litter and dumping,” said Ronen, who vowed to address the ongoing issue of trash in the Mission after taking office last November.  center_img 0% Tags: mission street • trash Share this: FacebookTwitterRedditemail,0%last_img read more

San Francisco Mission artist pushing back after feds broach possibility of removing

first_img Subscribe to Mission Local’s daily newsletter Email Address A purported complaint about the “disrespectful” nature of an upside-down flag was the impetus for this drawn-out period of uncertainty. Gregory laughs at the notion that an upside-down Old Glory is disrespectful, but it’s a “we laugh so as not to cry” sort of laugh. “You chuckle, but you hold your head down, because this is coming from your own government. These guys are idiots! We were in the military! You have access to all the information: It takes five minutes to make a phone call to get the expert to explain to you what this thing means,” he says. For those who don’t have such time or access, Gregory notes that an upside-down flag is a sign of distress, as in “send help, we’re under attack.” This is an obvious allusion to make for a group of military veterans who’ve found themselves deported from the country for crimes such as DUIs or marijuana convictions.Artist Amos Gregory claims those badmouthing his mural are “idiots” who are disrespecting him and other veterans. Photo by Joe Eskenazi.As for the upside-down crosses, St. Peter purportedly chose to die in such a manner because he didn’t feel worthy to go out in the same fashion as his savior; as such, Gregory continues, it’s a sign of humility and respect for the men and woman who have died attempted to cross this border. (This is not a sign, he emphasizes, of devil-worship — and this something he’s had to educate more than one Christian leader about over the years). Messages regarding the status of the mural left for Rodney Scott, the chief patrol agent for the San Diego sector, have not yet been returned. At Gregory’s insistence, the office of Rep. Nancy Pelosi on July 19 initiated an inquiry. Alex Lazar, an aide in her San Francisco office, declined to go into details regarding this move, which he said should be completed within 30 business days. While Border Patrol claims Gregory and the deported veterans failed to ask permission before painting a section of the fence, Gregory claims he’ll file suit if anyone lays a finger on the mural. “We have implied consent,” he claims. While he alleges that he and fellow artists were subjected to low-level harassment during the Obama years — helicopters buzzing them and things like that — he says the Donald Trump administration has taken things to another level. Gregory suspects the pressure to remove the mural stems from Trump’s visit to this section of the wall in March. Gregory is a native of Toledo, Ohio who arrived in San Francisco for a tech job around 20 years ago after finishing his military stint and graduating college. He eventually became a full-time artist; in 2009 he began leaving his home onHampshire Street and biking to the Tenderloin in the wee hours to photograph homeless veterans. In 2011, he led an effort to paint veteran-themed murals in gritty Shannon Alley, which he hopes to officially rechristen “Veterans Alley.” Publicity and social media postings about that project led to him connecting with deported veterans, and painting the mural that’s currently in jeopardy. Whether or not the mural is still up in August when Gregory travels to the border, he’s hoping to add two large words to space near it in the area known as Friendship Park. Viewed from one side, it’ll read “Justicia.” And, from the other, “repatriate.” center_img San Francisco artist Amos Gregory spent six years aboard a U.S. Navy fast-attack submarine. He knows a little bit about national defense. And now he’s going on the offensive. Gregory made national headlines in early 2018 when, he says, U.S. Customs and Border Protection informed him he had 48 hours to remove a mural he and a group of deported veterans painted on a border wall near Tijuana — or they’d do it for him. Well, 48 hours have come and gone — 48 days have come and gone — and Gregory’s mural is still on the wall. In fact, he helped a group of deported vets touch it up on Memorial Day. On Aug. 4, he’ll return to the border for more work on the art installation. The border wall, located a few feet within U.S. territory, is composed of towering diamond-shaped rods. As such, an enterprising artist can create a mural that, when viewed from different angles, presents different images. When Gregory’s five-year-old mural is viewed at a 45-degree angle from one side, it appears to be a huge upside-down flag with upside-down St. Peter’s crosses replacing the stars. Viewed from another angle, one can read the names of dozens of deported veterans, which they signed onto the wall with their own hands.  last_img read more
