Like a pied piper of slow-food, chef Chris Kronner charms SF’s artisanal food hunters to Bar Tartine. Maybe it's the savoury bread pudding (with cheddar and bacon), or his idea of a good time (goat roast, anyone?) Whatever works; he's landed at the Mission hotspot to serve up a bistro fix in this cozy- dark den (cue antler chandelier for ubiquitous 'urban lodge' aesthetic). Dip just- picked radishes in fig-walnut anchôiade – think salty, think sweet. (When the crudite's kaput, dip with the Tartine bread.) Pop mini gougères like pastry pills between sips of aperitifs, a round of which may help quell complaints over BT's lack of hard liquor. We recommend the steak for two but prior to which you'll need a pre-feastial (diner pre-nuptial) as division of leftovers may call for diplomacy. Don't overdo the sides of corn pudding and long- cooked greens as remember owners Elisabeth Prueitt and Chad Robertson are of Tartine Bakery – i.e. save room for dessert. Word has it Grande Dame of farm- to- table Alice Waters loved the soft-opening, so keep your eyes peeled for the sustainable foodie types. They'll be the ones asking for more radish. p.s. closed on Mondays. Prices vary widely from $4 for the gougères to $48 for the steak for two. Breakfast for dinner, that's $15.
