33rd Street Bistro.
Corner of 33rd and Folsom.
I have found Mecca, the Holy Land, Nirvana, HEAVEN.
This is one of the most fabulous restaurants I have eaten at.
I feel like such an adult when I eat here… And not just because I was offered bottomless mimosa’s. The menu is eclectic and exotic, but not in an off-putting, too-gourmet-for-the-average-person type of way.
Good, well balanced flavors.
And KILLER coffee to boot.
I ended up there for brunch on a whim about two weeks ago… Tower Café was way too busy (per usual) and I knew about 33rd Street.
I got the breakfast flatbread.
If I had know this meant pizza, I would have started trying things way earlier in my life.
Sunny side up egg
And other deliciousness.
The next week I ended up there for an early dinner with my mom. We both wanted something light(ish), and a panini sounded perfect.
Served with mixed greens with an oil and vinegar dressing. Simple, and perfect.
We also got tomato basil soup to start. I am allergic to tomatoes, so the soup was pretty off-putting to me (my bad decision to order it), but even my mom (a tomato soup aficionado) said it was not the best she has had.
But I very well might be in love with this sandwich. My mom got The Rainier (sub Mango Mayo for the Herb Mayo) and it was also fantastic. Maybe even better than mine….
Um… Then it was time for dessert.
Housemade Doughnut Holes with Strawberry, Honey Butter, and Triple Sec Chocolate Sauce for dipping.
Vanilla Creme Brulee (best I’ve had in years.)
And of course we were obligated to dip the doughnut hole in the Creme Brulee and chocolate sauce.
I tried the strawberry dipping sauce… wasn’t even worth it. Just eat the chocolate.
And please, please go check this place out.
You won’t be disappointed.
I cannot wait to go back.
