Outerlands – San Francisco

Outerlands Lunch

On a sunny summer day in San Francisco, what’s more perfect than brunch by the beach? I can tell you, not much. I first heard about Outerlands from my good friend Tye who heard about this place through her boyfriend who is friends with friends of the owner. And boy, I’m so glad I received the tip!

Outerlands has an uber hipster vibe. I’ve been told the hipster crowd is slowly migrating over to the Outer Sunset, and by the looks of this restaurant and its clientele, I would say that’s accurate.

When the menu hit the table, my eyes were drawn to the fried egg and bacon open-faced sandwich. It was so delicious! A thick and chewy slice of sourdough topped with crispy bacon, cheese, and two over-easy eggs. I popped my eggs immediately so that the yolk dripped into the crevices of the bread like a thick and creamy sauce. Oh so good.

After our sandwiches, we nibbled on their homemade soft-chew caramels and sipped on some Sightglass Coffee which they served in a neat looking carafe. The caramels was such sweet buttery goodness, good thing I only had one otherwise I wouldn’t be able to control myself.

I can’t wait to come back to Outerlands to try more. Everyone around our table seemed to be ordering the grilled cheese sandwich that is pan fried in butter with a side of soup. Seems like the perfect brunch this July 4th weekend!

Yew Restaurant @ The Four Seasons Hotel – Vancouver

Yew Restaurant @ The Four Seasons Hotel

Neighborhood: Downtown Vancouver, BC.

Rated: ♣♣♣

Vancouver, BC is known for their fresh seafood & and delicious food overall. Yew at the Four Seasons is a popular restaurant for locals & tourist who want exceptional service & the mode/chic aesthetic.

The Scene:

Weekdays to weekends Yew is always busy. You can however get a table without a reservation during non-peak meal hours. Due to the nature of its location (in the Four Seasons) the price-point is much higher than normal catering to those who are willing to pay more for their meals & enjoy the modern design & cool restaurant. Their service & personal requests are above & beyond and this would be a great place for a special occasion – family birthday, girls night out or a special date.

The Food:

From many past experiences, their Mushroom Gnocci is always excellent! Fresh, soft, flavorful & the perfect gnocci texture. You may inquire about  made-to-order vegetable gnocci or even meat. Today’s meal – brunch – eggs benedict served with FRESH dungeness crab, spinach & fingerling potatoes ($18).

The dungeness crab was an extremely tasty addition to the typical eggs florentine (benedict & spinach) however the price point was much higher than the usual breakfast restau. All in all the ambiance and aesthetic of Yew Restaurant + great service + meal = overpriced but worth it once in a while.
