There is a restaurant (La Central) in the corner of Grant and Bush in San Francisco, I haven’t been to for a while. Perhaps three years-unfortunately for me-because I had forgotten how wonderful the place is, not only because of the very French ambiance but for the food also.
I normally take the same route to walk during my lunch break when I plan to shop near Union Square. But Tuesday last week, I decided to veer right, thinking I was going to go to Banana Republic to check out their clearance rack, instead I went in for lunch – dragging a good friend of mine with me.
My usual seat in the corner, which I was lucky enough to grab, by the window, sitting at a marbled table for two
Staring at this wonderful set-up, taking me back to classic French cafes in Paris
Ordering my usual Salmon drowned in Hollandaise sauce and forcing my friend to get the next best dish, Beef bourguignon
We shared the best creme brulee on this side of the Atlantic or maybe just the west coast
Walked to Maiden Lane, where I noticed my favorite cherry trees slowly blooming
Snapped a dozen photos of the colorful narrow of a street worth a walk through
And deciding this was our next stop for after work
