San Francisco: The Cavalier; restaurant review


San Francisco

The Cavalier  360 Jessie St./5th St., adjacent to Hotel Zetta, SoMa, (415) 321-6000.  B-L-D daily; $$-$$$. 

Situated across from the landmark Old Mint, this clubby spot presents contemporary London.


front bar at The Cavalier restaurant in San Francisco

Game heads decorate the wall of the high-ceilinged front bar, and posh banquettes invite relaxing in the back restaurant.


speakeasy bathroom a la Rolling Stones at The Cavalier restaurant in San Francisco

Even farther back is a hidden speakeasy with its bathroom decorated to look like the cover of the Rolling Stones’ “Exile on Main Street” album, but getting into that room is another story.

Appetizers include a sweet little Quail Egg Mayonnaise,


Hen Egg Hollandaise at The Cavalier restaurant in San Francisco

a tasty Hen Egg Hollandaise with ham and cheese soldiers,


Duck Duck Scotch Egg at The Cavalier restaurant in San Francisco

the Duck Duck Scotch Egg with a colorful and tasty cherry chutney, and, straying from the egg theme, which I adored, addictive Crispy Brussels Chips, which I also adored.


Spicy Crab and Cucumber Tea Sandwich at The Cavalier restaurant in San Francisco

At lunch the Spicy Crab and Cucumber Tea Sandwiches are a refined treat, but the Wild Mushroom Pie is a tasty option and the fat “Marlowe” Burger with cheddar and bacon is a sure thing.


tea service at The Cavalier restaurant in San Francisco

Tea service brings on a proper cuppa served in a sweet blue individual tea pot, and desserts are the likes of sticky toffee pudding, peach crumble, and steamed pudding.  Teas are Samovar, coffee is Stumptown, and cocktails, wines, and beers, but of course, are available, too.
