  • Marengo on Union
    The Three Faces of Marengo on Union Gourmet Sliders A dozen sliders form the bulk of the modest menu at Marengo on Union. There’s the classic All-American (with cheddar, tomato, and special sauce), but Chef Rayna Toomajian’s creativity really shines through in her more unusual combinations, like the Gobbler: a turkey patty smothered in provolone and basil-pesto aioli. Although some sliders—like the Shrimp Po’ Boy with Tabasco aioli—are distinctly American, Chef Rayna also incorporates global flavors into the Báhn Mì and Italian-inspired Meatball sliders. Local and Organic Ingredients A road trip to any of Marengo’s suppliers wouldn’t take long. The shredded pork inside the Porky’s slider came from Bailey-Long Family Farms in California’s Central Valley, and the ground lamb in the Starling slider started out at Pozzi Ranch in Northern California. Chef Rayna sources organic ingredients whenever possible, and she changes her menu with the seasons to showcase the freshest possible produce. Worldly Whiskeys and Wines Like the food menu, Marengo’s drink list spotlights plenty of local flavors, from the wines of Napa and Anderson Valleys to whiskeys distilled right in the Bay Area. But both collections branch out as well, featuring a mix of European and South American wines and a long list of Kentucky bourbons and single malts squeezed fresh from the mossy moors of Scotland. The whiskeys find their way into craft cocktails such as the BLT, made with Bulleit, lemon, and tonic.

  • Tacko
    Five Things to Know About Tacko After the success of Nick’s Crispy Tacos and The Taco Shop at Underdogs, restaurateur Nick Fasanella continued his culinary winning streak by unveiling Tacko. Here’s some reasons it can proudly stand beside Nick’s previous eateries: Cooks only fills tacos and burritos with organic proteins. Tacko’s pork and beef hail from family-owned Idaho farms, and the antibiotic-free chicken arrives from Fulton Valley Farms in Sonoma. The restaurant also uses freshly caught mahi mahi. They can prepare tacos “Nick’s Way”. Popularized by Nick’s other San Francisco taquerias, this unique preparation method requires cooks to fill a corn tortilla with meat, cheese, pinto beans, and guacamole before wrapping the whole thing in a soft-shell tortilla. ”Street-style” tacos are $2 all day Tuesday. Same goes for tecates. The décor is Nantucket themed. Yacht club flags and a wall-sized map of Nantucket lend Tacko’s a distinctly New England vibe. Despite the decor, the only Nantucket staple on the menu is a lobster roll made with butter-poached Maine lobster in a toasted hot-dog bun. It serves a trio of cocktails in frosty sand pails. Those would be red- or white-wine sangria, as well as the Margaritish, a blend of lime juice, triple sec, and de Agave.

  • Eastside West
    On one side of the bar at Eastside West, visitors gather to sip beers and mixed drinks, and perhaps to sample the house-smoked salmon toast. The other side is a gallery: ornate golden frames surround bottles of wine and spirits, turning them into works of art on the bar’s recessed shelves. It's a touch of sophistication that speaks volumes about the gastropub. Though the menu announces that Eastside West does indeed have corn hole and beer pong, its pages also showcase a more refined take on down-home traditions. For example, the double cheeseburgers here come decorated not with bacon strips but with bacon jam. Many of the menu items are seasonal or organic, and all are overseen by Chef Dino, who prefers to shop local. His entrees expand on barroom staples by adding an entire fried Cornish game hen to the list. The appetizers, too, flaunt stylish touches—nachos are garnished with chorizo and carnitas instead of just cheese and cheese-flavored whipped cream. All of this subtle elegance doesn't keep the place from getting rambunctious, however. Crowds still vie for first place during Wednesday pub trivia, and dance to live jazz or DJ sets. A heated outdoor patio provides ample space for savoring cocktails such as the cherry apple sour, made from Templeton rye, apple juice, and black-cherry jam.
