The Square (Eat/Drink)

TheSquareRating: Okay
Where: North Beach, San Francisco, CA (1707 Powell Street by Union Street)

Review:

Brought by the same folks who have the impressive Sons & Daughters, and Sweet Woodruff, The Square is meant to be a more casual joint for its location.

Kale salad was probably the best with its clean taste. Guinea hen and trout were just standard and nothing mind-blowing. The 30 minute prepped rhubarb and pistachio galette with whole milk ice cream was good but again, nothing to dream about afterwards.

Cocktails were too sweet and tart but wines and Calvados VSOP were good.

The space was a bit loud and tables are quite packed. Still the place was packed, making it a bit noisy. But if you like a happening place rather than eating and drinking, this will be it for its trendiness.

Unfortunately the price point was high for its quality, even North Beach is a prime location for both locals and tourists. Each person would easily run over $100 for its somewhat mediocre food and drink. It made this visit totally disappointing. The only plus point is they open until 1am for most of the days.

Coffee Cultures (Eat/Drink)

CoffeeCulturesRating: Okay
Where: Financial District, San Francisco, CA (25 Bush Street cross Sansome Street)

Review: So the coffee was pretty good, and the super dim light place is artistic at best, but you must know that the coffee was somewhat steep pricey and the pastries were not cheap either. A quick stop will cost you 8 bucks with $3.25 for a cap and rest for a pastry and tax.
