My last post about our trip to San Francisco is in fact the first meal we had there. We arrived late and had no energy to walk around to find a place, especially as we did not know the area where our hotel, The Pickwick, was. So, we ended up in the hotel's restaurant, like many other tourists who were staying there (note that it was not that crowded anyway).
They first brought us some bread that was welcome considering the awful food we got during our flight with Delta Airlines.
We skipped the appetizers and went directly for the main course. Jodi went for their mushroom pizza that was topped with mozzarella cheese, baby arugula and truffle oil. It was a decent pizza, the scent of the truffle oil filling quickly our noses as soon as they brought the pizza to the table.
On my side, I went for the NY steak, served with a gorgonzola and brandy sauce, arugula salad and French fries. The steak was perfectly cooked medium-rare, as ordered, and had a nice marking from the grill that gave a nice flavor to it. I was not expecting the quality of a steakhouse, and was pleasantly surprised with this dish. I appreciated the fact that they served it with both a salad and fries, the fries, probably frozen, being nicely crispy.
The meal at SOMA was decent. I think it is a good place if you stay in a hotel close by and do not want to venture in the city: I would not just go there for the sake of going there though...
Enjoy (I did)!
