Great typical French brasserie. Thonet bentwood chairs, dimly lit, and chic menu typography. La nourriture…c’est TBD.UPDATE on Cafe des Amis (2000 Union at Buchanan):

  • Sauvignon Blance aux pichet (by the carafe!) . . . delicieux!
  • French onion soup . . . to die for!
  • Hanger steak-frites . . . overcooked (medium was medium well), semi-bland, but bearnaise sauce was scrumptious.
  • Upside down almond cake with plums . . . indulgent!
  • Complimentary mini 1″ square salted brownie . . . perhaps the definitive reason I’ll be returning asap!

P.S. The lovely Eggplant Elephant was my dinner date!

    Yesterday, I had one of these moments – a few minutes, really. As my 41 bus arrived, an older woman, probably 65, ran towards me, literally shoving me off the sidewalk. Ow! She continued running until she weaseled her way into the bus’s rear door, but not before she feistily shoved three others. We all shared laughs over our bafflement, while telling tales of other MUNI etiquette faux-pas. Then the woman, shown here, stepped down to exit the bus, and the doors did not open. “Push,” said one of my new bus buddies. “You know how to do that, don’t you?”

    Feelin’ the Blue on Green
