Recession makes strange roommates. Behold two wildly different S.F. spots that are serving up three-course dinners for 25 bones, give or take:
• Last night saw the launch of nightly supper service at Il Cane Rosso (One Ferry Building #41 at The Embarcadero). The deal? Three rustic, locally sourced courses, served family style, for $25 — or order à la carte ($8 for the starter, $12.50 for the main, $6 for dessert). Wine, beer, and other liquid refreshments extra. No reservations, just show up between 4:30 and 8 p.m., seven days.
• Brunch spot Sally's (300 De Haro at 16th St.) started it's dinner service last week. Okay, Sally's After Dark sounds like an Elko bordello, but in fact, it's serving up hefty plates of familiar foods: seared ahi with Asian-y slaw, braised short ribs with polenta. You get the picture. Three courses for $24, Weds-Sat, 6-11 p.m.
