Wexler's in San Francisco

With the rain pouring down on us here in NYC, we decided to do a little clean-up.

A couple of months ago, we unfortunately had both our laptop and desktop call it quits on us at the same time.

We have since recovered all of our files (note to self:  backup! backup! backup!) and found lost photos from a restaurant in San Francisco.

So, in the hopes that some sunny California weather will come back to NYC, we thought we would share this SF gem.

I had visited Wexler's while on break during the Foodbuzz Festival back in November.  It had just opened for business, but was already getting favorable press for its BBQ.

Walking in, I loved the dramatic black ceiling.  It looked like cascading fabric from an Oscar-worthy dress.
Cilantro Cocktail ($5, happy hour price):  The bartender made this drink on the fly, using whatever fresh ingredients she had on hand.  Made with vodka, simple syrup, lime juice, muddled cilantro, and a bit of cayenne pepper, the cocktail was fresh, tart, a tad smokey, and a nice adult alternative to sweet tea.
BBQ Scotch Eggs ($12):  I love scotch eggs (traditionally hard-boiled eggs wrapped in sausage and fried), but these particular ones were noteworthy because the egg was soft-boiled and incorporated burnt ends.  Served with some frisee, house made hot sauce, and sweet tea gastrique (sweeter sauce), this Scotch Egg plate was worth the quick trip to Wexler's
I cannot wait to return with my meat-loving husband to try out their BBQ.

Wexler's is located at 568 Sacramento St. in San Francisco, CA.

  1. Wexler's looks like a neat venue! Love the black waves on the roof. It looks totally groovy!

  2. That ceiling is awesome! And those eggs, I may have to go to San Francisco now.

    And hopefully the weather will clear today!

  3. Oh I remember hearing you talk about that - it's great to see the pictures now too!

  4. i have had the scotch eggs at wexler's and haven't stopped talking about them since! an excellent take on a british pub standard. waaaaay better at wexler's in my opinion. the soft boiled eggs makes the experience so much yummier! enjoy!
