STATE BIRD PROVISIONS IS A POPULAR SAN FRANCISCO RESTAURANT THAT MANY SAY SERVES THE BEST TAPAS IN THE CITY.
One San Francisco Restaurant whose concepts, methods and innovative spirit have gotten the attention of chefs and restauranteurs across the United States is State Bird Provisions. Husband and wife co-owners Stuart Brioza and Nicole Krasinski’s philosophy sounds contradictory, but it’s not.
Fast food created deliberately, served dim sum style, a relaxed way of serving with the exception of the fact that it is often the chefs doing the serving. The décor at this San Francisco Restaurant is also minimalist, concrete walls with simple art and tables bearing only the essentials.
Obviously State Bird Provisions would not garner the attention of heavyweights in the food world without producing delectable and distinctive cuisine. From the starter menu, sample the Guinea hen dumpling with aromatic broth, snacking pork with apple mostarda, and the garlic bread with burrata. Some other starters that are worth mentioning are the hog island oyster, spicy kohlrabi kraut & sesame, and the charred octopus with fresh peppercorn & tomato sauce.
The main course list includes the CA state bird with provisions, ‘kung pao’ beef sweetbreads with bacon, nuts & seeds and the red trout, mandarin, hazelnut-garum vinaigrette.The ample wine list is comprised of champagne, reds and whites from France, Italy, Portugal, Germany, Spain, Austria, Corsica, and Australia. This San Francisco Restaurant also offers sake and a selection of beer.
While you’re there, you’ll have to give some of the dessert items a chance. Consider the interesting sounding Szechuan pepper ‘ice cream’ sandwich, chocolate macaron, pecans & hazelnuts, or the cocoa nib crème caramel, madeira fudge, or rice-fennel crunch.
