Tues., Jan. 19, 2010

It's as gray and sodden as Northern Europe out there, so why not lunch on something with roots in Alsace? Ironside's flammenkucken flatbread is a pizza not exactly in the Cal-Med tradition. Moistened with crème frâiche, scattered with ridiculously sweet caramelized onions and hunks of bacon, it feels exactly right in the handsome gloom of Ironside's reclaimed industrial ambience. And if you can manage a pint of Trumer Pils to go with, why the gloom positively disappears.

Ironside 680A Second St. (at Townsend), 896-1127

  • San Francisco Street Food Festival 2014
    The San Francisco Street Food Festival was another success this year. Dozens of vendors with original, unheard-of creations, such as deep fried mac and cheese on a stick, black pea paste pancakes, and Korean quesadillas. Then there was the comfort foods we've grown accustomed to, like creme bruleé, shrimp rolls, and pound cake. Photographs by Mabel Jimenez.
