TBT - The Curbside Cafe Anniversary Parties

#TBT On May 26th we attended the 40th Anniversary of the Curbside Cafe at 2147 California St, San Francisco and I found this pic of us celebrating the 20th Anniversary as well, in May 1998. 

Check out the 1998 photo of Antoine in front of the Cafe at the 20th Anniversary and to a shot of the Cafe before it was transformed in 1978!

Curbside Cafe is a quiet and relaxing neighborhood restaurant that serves French-inspired comfort food and remains one of our favorites. We love the French Onion Soup, Shrimp Scampi and fresh beautifully sourced ingredients.

Newer owner Olivier Perrier is charming and welcoming. Former owner Antoine Alliaum moved on to open La Terasse in the Presidio. We still LOVE dining here and celebrating with them. sfcurbside.com

Dining Under the SF Bay Bridge

The #SFbusinesslunch is alive, thriving and delectable on the outdoor patio @waterbarsf under the Bay Bridge. 

The freshest seafood, oyster and wine pairing recommendations, beautifully crafted salads and visual masterpiece in our shared deconstructed carrot cake! Dining again and again always brings new and regular menu items to try! 

I especially enjoy the impeccable personalized service including a fabulous welcome from our host, Managing Partner, @petesittnick. Perfect for special occasions and any occasion, Waterbar delights! Reservations recommended.

Dining Out San Francisco!

dining_out_san_francisco_cynthia_palmer.png

Where interior design meets pride of ownership with delectable and eclectic food pairings.

This Michelin Guide 2018 restaurant, The Progress is the loving result of of this second restaurant for Stuart Brioza and Nicole Krasinki of State Bird Provisions. Dining is mostly family style and the menu changes nightly with a choice of 6 dishes of 17 offered! @theprogresssf

We ordered by checking-off the menu, choosing dishes from Western Additions, Raw & Salads, Platters, Vegetables & Grains, Meat & Seafood! 

Highlights of my meal were the CA sturgeon caviar potato cloud and alaskan halibut ‘a la plancha” with fava beans & green garlic ravigote, pictured!!

The food is a cross cultural experience with bright, unique combo’s and delectable sauces; where East meets West with bold flavors and beautiful platings. 

Fabulous personalized service from casually and cooly dressed staff. It’s a true dining experience that I enjoyed immensely and can’t wait to go again!

NewestWine CountryDining (1).png

 3 great new wine country restaurants opened recently! 

HEALDSBURG
The Brass Rabbit at 109 Plaza St.
Serving dinner nightly, this is a local supper club inspired bistro with lots to look at. Watch the chef's counter and Argentinian wood-burning grill with rotisserie, using local and seasonal ingredients. Specials are amazing, think lobster Thermidor, Peking duck a l'orange with crafted cocktails and a high level of service in a casual and relaxed atmosphere. Ambiance Tip: Check out their tin ceiling! @thebrassrabbithdbg

NAPA
Alba at the River Terrace Inn - 1600 Soscol Ave. 
Serving Breakfast and Dinner
Overlooking the Napa River with floor-to-ceiling windows; dine indoors or on the outdoor fire pit patio and enjoy small plates of northern pacific high country cuisine that pair with craft mixology.  A quintessentially elegant yet rustic setting, they offer daily specials, midweek Happy Hour and have live music (in season) on Thu, Fri and Sat. @riverterraceinn

ST. HELENA
Acacia House at the Las Alcobas Hotel on the Beringer Vineyard - 1915 Main St.
Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. Make a reservation
Located in a 1907 Victorian inn mixing vintage and modern in this California concept restaurant. The celeb chefs have created an upscale dining experience at the Las Alcobas hotel.

holiday2018_cynthiapalmer.png

Holiday Tea at the Palace Hotel 2017. The Garden Court always awes and delights, as their holiday decorations are the finest, complimenting the elegance of the room which is a turn of the century solarium. The Signature Tea is lovely with a live harpist playing holiday classics, the tiny sandwiches, pastries and desserts beautifully presented and delicious. The service elegant and the company delightful sharing tea with my friend and marketing guru, Erika at Scribe415. What a lovely holiday afternoon!

Taking time out to enjoy great moments is important! I happily work 24/7 and making a work-life balance in 2018 is one of my goals, so stay tuned for lots of real estate activity news, plus highlights of theater, opera, ballet, dining and adventure's in San Francisco and Wine Country!
