I love seafood. Any kind. Steamed, fried, baked, braised. If it’s fish, there’s almost no instance when I would refuse. So naturally, when we ventured down to the Dogpatch’s Mission Rock Resort (created by the same owner’s who brought the city MoMo’s, Pete’s Tavern and Pedro’s Cantina), the “seafood-centric” menu had me at hello.
Chef Selection of Oysters
Day Boat Scallop Crudo – soy ginger marinade, citrus segments and mint
Local Heirloom Tomatoes – torpedo onions, burrata, basil vinaigrette
Roasted Baby Beet Salad – mache, arugula, smoke almonds, herbed chevre
Local King Salmon – braised leeds, roasted mushrooms, salsa verde
If you’re feeling like something other than a crisp white wine to pair with your oysters, try one of their cocktails. Not normally one to go for the fruitiest drink, I was able to find a tart gin concoction on the first go-around.
Hendricks Gin, St. Germaine Elderflower, basil, lime juice
And for those who fancy something sweeter, with more rum or have an overwhelming craving for pear….
