In keeping with the Golden Gate Restaurant Association's Heirloom Tomato Week, I had the most extraordinary experience with the Summer Tomato Cart at Bix that just had to be shared.
I had been wanting to try Bix for quite some time now on several recommendations from trusted Foodie friends and various write-ups by fellow food writers. The Menu alone is rather extensive, featuring many different Dishes prepared with seasonal items, which is sure to suit anyone's palette. Not to mention, the warm, stylish Deco-esque decor and the nightly live jazz, both serve as a perfect backdrop to make your dining experience even more special. The restaurant is both elegant and lively, and very reminiscent of the glamour of the glorious Jazz Era of the 30's and 40's. Tucked in an alley in San Francisco's Financial District, Bix describes itself as a world class supperclub and I am inclined to agree.
In case you haven't been out in the dining scene lately, the latest trend literally 'going around' in restaurants these days is the Heirloom Tomato Cart. We've seen cheese carts at places like Gary Danko and prime rib carts at the House of Prime Rib, but the current trend is the Tomato Cart. To be honest, I was a little skeptical at first, but as I sat down to dine at Bix, I was compelled to try it and see what the excitement was all about.
