Last Saturday I was invited to brunch at the Presidio Social Club and I had such a wonderful meal, I just had to share it with you. If you’ve never been to the Presidio Social Club, you should definitely take a trip out there. I know it’s hard to get to the Presidio, but the PSC is conveniently located right next to the Lombard Street entrance. The building was originally built in 1903 and the restaurant has a very old-school feel that evokes an earlier era in San Francisco. (It would be a super fun place for a wedding check out this one that Martha Stewart featured.)
The food, which is upscale casual cuisine, is comfort food at its best. We sampled an assortment of new brunch dishes by chef Ray Tang with my favorites being the light, fluffy brioche beignets with hot chocolate dipping sauce, smoked trout on rye bread with pickled mustard seeds, and the Mission style chilequiles. Normally I prefer chilequiles with a fried egg, but the Presidio Social Club’s scrambled egg version was insanely good.
The PSC also has a stellar cocktail program. Both the just-spicy enough bloody Mary and frothy pineapple painkiller were perfectly balanced and almost too easy to drink. It was such a lovely time that I’m already looking forward to my next meal at 563 Ruger Street.
