One of the best things about San Francisco has to be all the good eats. Tonight I joined a friend and a friend-of-a-friend for dinner at Foreign Cinema in the Mission (www.foreigncinema.com). Once again, the City did not fail me; the food was...well, it was lovely.
I started with the baked formage, which conjured up memories of fondue. Basically the formage was melted brie, toasted bread, potato and apples; every bite was worth it. My main dish, or "feature" as FC calls it was the pork chop, but I also got to taste the fried chicken and the duck. All three were fantastic. Pork chops can be risky since many places overcook it, but FC did it right. Dessert was an apple tart and the Ruby port. Yummy.
We sat in the courtyard and you should too. FC projects a film onto the back wall, and drive-in speakers are set-up along the wall. Tonight they showed the Fountain, and even though you can hear the movie playing in the background, it's not too distracting or annoying. Instead, it adds to the ambience of the restaurant and makes for a pretty cool dining/social experience.
