The Times article about Skinny Bitch, a pro-vegan, anti-alcohol/caffeine/sugar/LIFE diet book, got me thinking about our food philosophy here at wishbone clover.
We can sum it up with one word: meat.
For our kick-off celebration, we had dinner at Bar Bambino, a surprisingly swank little restaurant on 16th Street in the Mission, just past the gathering point for your friendly neighborhood meth addicts.
At Bar Bambino, they're serious enough about their house-made salumi to have a separate, glass-walled prep station. And what meat! I think I can speak for both of us in saying that the cured beef with olive oil and lemon was life changing. To ensure that she didn't take more than her share, I pinned Cat's hand to the table with a fork while I took the above camera phone photo.
Word to the wise: if your server inquires about dessert wines and you respond "We-uhl have one of EVERYthing!!!" it's probably a safe indicator you should have none of anything.
