Sons & Daughters (San Francisco)

Tucked away on Bush St, Sons & Daughters serves up an inspired menu full of fresh local ingredients. When you walk in, you can see into the small kitchen and the dining room is decorated with classic paintings over the fireplace. Overall it feels very cozy and warm.

When I went (which was a little while back - yes I know I am behind lol!), they offered both a prix-fixe menu, four courses for $48, as well as an a la carte menu. I heard they have changed it to prix-fixe only now at a higher price but the food is still inspiring.

The dinner started off with an amuse bouche of oysters with cucumber water, which was nicely done and very refreshing. I had wanted to try Sons & Daughters because I heard that they had lobster sashimi as an appetizer, but sadly, the night I went they already changed their menu and no longer offered it. Instead, I ordered the seared foie gras since I normally would never give up a chance to eat foie gras! There is a supplemental fee of $5 for the foie, but it was a generaous cut and definitely worth the price.

What was interesting was that for dessert they offered foie gras with apples, lemon verbana, and almonds. I can never say no to foie gras! The concept might have sounded great but the execution was a little lacking. It was basically a chilled foie gras terrine mixed with fruits and nuts. Personally, I'd prefer something that exemplifies the essence of dessert. Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy the unique concepts but this dish felt more like a heavy appetizer than a nice way to finish off the meal.

Nonetheless, I had a nice meal that didn't break the bank. Even though they have increased their prices, the food is definitely still worth trying out. Be sure to make a reservation though since this restaurant has gained much popularity and is very small. Bon Appetit!
