The American burger is part Whopper and part Double-Double, but, like, a bazillion times better than either.
To see how restaurant design has evolved in the last few decades, you need to look no further than Causwells
This neighborhood newbie is super cozy and their burger will blow your mind. The Americana comes with a special house sauce, pickles and crispy onions. Oh, and two char grilled patties with cheese. Hot damn.
The food is designed to share, which fits with the easygoing and social vibe of the place.
Looking at the concrete floors, raw unfinished walls, and hanging light fixtures made from the pedestals of the Bechelli’s bar stools, is a study of where restaurant design has gone over the last few decades.
The deviled egg trend continues to grow
Causwells, a new addition in the Marina District, is an upscale casual American bistro with a smattering of classic American and European-influenced dishes.
This casual new bistro comes from two restaurant vets, with a Flour + Water alum in the kitchen.
in a nice tip of the cap to the neighborhood, the dessert menu features a bread pudding made with goods from nearby awesome place All-Star Donuts.
Causwells location, adjacent to the Presidio Theater, will definitely make it a destination for movie dates.
Butter takes center stage in Bay Area restaurants
You’ll enter an intimate room with antique mirrors, vintage cast-iron lamps made to look like belladonna flowers and floors pre-stained with coffee and wine (totally works, though). Also: a window in the corner that looks directly onto the Presidio’s box office.
House ricotta ($9.75) drizzled in rosemary honey and served with lavash crisps, plays more like a cream cheese: thick and rich. It’s quite filling as a starter and we’d actually like it for dessert, but its a standout nonetheless.
This casual new Marina spot literally just opened (on July 2!), offering a New American menu that’s designed to share while you work your way through their extensive wine-by-the-glass and craft beer list. Deviled eggs, smoked brisket with onion jam, and a baby kale Caesar salad are all there; and with the kitchen open until 1a.m., the Marina also just scored a new late-night burger stop. Three words: donut bread pudding (which uses donuts from neighbor Allstar Donuts).
A small plates offering will be the focus, and Tablehopper has some details on the forthcoming menu, which will include dishes like deviled eggs with smoked trout; steak tartar with garlic, capers, shallots and quail egg; and smoked brisket with onion jam.
There will be 20 wines by the glass, featuring small-production, family-owned, and good value wines, with primarily Cali wines, plus some quality European bottles.
