San Francisco's Absinthe
Posted by:  Carolyne Rohrig

Before you go to the opera and the ballet have a bite at Absinthe. The Croque Monsieur is a toasty delight filled with Black Forest ham, Gruyere, Dijon mustard, and bechamel. The Cheddar grilled cheese is not your mother's recipe, but is filled with pickled red onion, jalapeno-sun-dried tomato jam, and go ahead, add bacon for that extra zing. The cocktails are delicious. The decor is tres French. And you'll be off to an amazing start before the show.

Comment: This really is a great restaurant, but if you are going to the opera/ballet, I would instead advise you head to Plaj at The Inn at the Opera. It's a sublime Scandinavian restaurant offering small plates of exquisite fare. Get there early to order more. It is on Fulton street, just across Gough from the back of the Memorial Opera house.
