San Francisco: Lemonade


Lemonade  781 Mission St., at the Metreon, SOMA, (415) 522-0191.  Daily 10am-9pm.  Fast and casual, this link in the L.A. chain offers cafeteria-style service.  When the line is long, it can feel disorganized because they encourage line-jumping but the people ahead of you don’t like it.  Customer service is very good and cheerful but can’t overcome this irritating glitch.  Food is well seasoned and highly flavorful and includes creative prepared salads such as arugula and Asian pears or BLT panzanella, and mains such as barbecue brisket or avocado-salmon Louie.  We opted to share poached salmon with a Thai-style sauce and sides of spectacular Brussels sprouts and spicy Indian-style cauliflower plus some crostini.  Not sure?  Ask for a sample.  Comfortable seating includes some booths and a banquette and is available both indoors and out (with heat lamps).  As you might expect, lemonade is a specialty and includes everything from a refreshing cucumber-mint to tasty blood orange; I really liked the guava version.
