state bird provisions, san francisco.
back in july, we flew up to the bay area to visit family and friends. our besties jon and jason snagged us reservations at michelin starred state bird provisions for dinner one evening and we had the. best. time.
the dinner format is nearly identical to our experience at emmer & rye in austin. state bird has been around longer, but both were on bon appetit's list of 50 best new restaurants in america the years they opened. there is a base menu you can order a few items from, but dim-sum-style carts bring around lots of other delicious goodies!
everything was so good, it's hard to pick a favorite. going as a party of four was perfect though, since we got to each have a bite or two of so many different dishes. the garlic bread, octopus, ribs, tartares and anchovy tomato toast really stand out to me looking back.
the flavors and textures of each dish were so unique, and the cultural influences came from all over the globe. we ate really well that night, and we ate a LOT, but we still had room for dessert and it was awesome. the peanut milk was to die for!
we're so grateful for our friends that we could share in this lovely experience with them. we're already planning on visiting them again later this year, so i can't wait to see what good eats we get into then!
