Restaurants offer diners both a delicious reprieve from the kitchen and a secure environment that makes it virtually impossible for the dish to run away with the spoon. Keep your eating implements obedient with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of American- and French-style fare and drinks for dinner at Abigail's Pastry & Fine Foods in the Marina District. Presenting a dinner carte du jour of seasonally upgraded entries, Abigail's fuses fare from France and America and presents it in an inviting, romantic environment free of basketballs. For dinner (served 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., Tuesday to Saturday), you might be able to sample filet mignon, mussels, grilled salmon, and clam chowder (offerings change) while procuring pours from Abigail's wine list.
Abigail's Pastry & Fine Foods received the vote for Best Muffins in 2008 by the SF Weekly, more than 130 Yelpers give Abigail's an average of four stars, and Citysearchers give it a perfect five-star average:
- …its muffins are among the best you'll encounter within the city limits. They're on the small side, crunchy around the edges, and substantial yet gossamer-textured within: an ideally light and lovely way to greet a new dawn. – SF Weekly
- This place is a hidden gem. Their sandwiches and pastries are outstanding. – sfdrinker, Citysearch
