San Francisco: Black Cat; restaurant review


San Francisco

Black Cat  400 Eddy St./Leavenworth St., The Tenderloin, (415) 358-1999.

This two-level supper club has a black womb of a cocktail bar upstairs, where the menu offers an unusual cinnamony Voodoo Magic mescal drink in a gorgeous multi-colored glass as well as a must-try Asian-style Jazu-Kissa sake drink in a cone-shaped glass nested in ice.  It does seem that the drinks here change frequently, making it hard sometimes to even catch their name.  The popcorn appetizer is the best ever, and the hard boiled eggs perhaps the creepiest ever--they are topped with popped rice that resembles maggots.

After, you can head downstairs for swanky live jazz, another cocktail, and/or an optional prix fixe dinner as well.  Think low lights and a sultry, romantic vibe.

  1. Yes please to the Voodoo Magic cocktail at the Black Cat. Not so sure about the hard boiled egg appetizer though!

    1. I definitely had trouble even tasting that hard-boiled egg!

  2. Black Cat sure sounds creepy, but in a very good way. Some creative minds dreamed up these drink and appetizer recipes. I'd give the hard-boiled egg a try and wonder what more is to come.

  3. You gave me such a great idea for my daughter's birthday gift next month. I hope they sell gift cards at the Black Cat website!

  5. My daughter lives in San Francisco, and I think this will definitely be in our plans next time we visit. What I most miss about San Francisco is discovering unusual places to eat and drink like the Black Cat; there are just so many!
