Best Mixed Grill

Foreign Cinema

The menu at this sophisticated Mission District spot changes frequently, as do the movies projected on the wall of the big outdoor patio, but you'll often find a mixed grill on the list, an orgy of flesh that encompasses several different kinds of meat, chosen for texture as well as flavor, with interesting accompaniments. We have the happiest memories of one that included superb rare duck breast, a smoky, meaty grilled quail, and a long, thin, meltingly soft house-made chicken sausage, the succulent meats set off by a crunchy, bitter salad of chicory and sour cherries and a crostini spread with a suave foie gras pâté. Yum.
