Yesterday evening, I put on a party dress and braved the stormy weather to meet some girlfriends for dinner at the newly reopened Tosca in North Beach. The place was positively humming with energy and even though the wait for a table was on the long side, it was completely worth it. We sampled a few cocktails and shared a number of small plates, from crispy pig tails to lumaconi with lemon cream and breadcrumbs. Everything was just terrific. It was such a lovely blend of the city past and present. San Francisco, I love you.
Anyway, I had a splendid (if very damp) weekend. Hope you did too!
