We've just returned from a wonderful trip to San Francisco for a concert given by a pianist friend of ours who was appearing with the S. F. Symphony. One must eat, however, so this is an account of our pre-concert meal at Bistro Clovis. San Francisco, besides being a beautiful city with a killer view, also is known for its cost of living: Steep, like the hills. Our cousins live in Marin County, attend many cultural events and know the ins & outs of dining well but reasonably. Thus we gravitated to Bistro Clovis, located no more than a 5 minute walk from Davies Hall, home of the San. Francisco Symphony.

We were 7 people so I'm not going to try to list everything we ate. At least 4 of us ordered fish in various preparations...en papillote, sauteed, roasted & all 4 of us were very, very pleased with both the taste & presentation of our entrees. Some were provencal in nature, some classic french, one Asian-influenced. Appetizers ran the gamut from pate to salads with the same reception. Classic desserts like poire Helene & a chocolate dome filled with something or other were ordered. The wines were brought by one of our friends, killer wines, the youngest being a 1983 Brane-Cantenac and ranged from an opening Spatlese to a dessert Sauterne. Every restaurant in S.F. allows you to bring your own and pay corkage.

As good as dinner was, & it was hugely enjoyed, it was only a prelude to the concert which followed. Now that, was a feast!
