In Bistro SF Grill, glasses brimming with Slavic wines clink in toasts, launching their cool song against carmine walls punctuated by vivid paintings. Patrons slide into booths or seats to browse a menu dominated by inventive, sustainable, organic burgers trapped between organic multigrain or kaiser bread. Patties crafted from Johansing Farms' grass-fed and free-range beef parade alongside a construction named for Iggy Pop, which captures the fiery personality of the rock icon with roasted red peppers atop organic grass-fed buffalo from Wyoming. Chicken, turkey, and vegan burgers proffer beefless options, and the bistro's wine menu highlights Eastern European varieties, including wines from Slovenia and Croatia, which patrons may sip at the bar while holding staring contests with a dazzling mosaic-ringed mirror. The terroir of each elixir is shaped by Mediterranean, Alpine, and Continental climates that flock to the region's feuding meteorologists.
