San Francisco, California: Fish & Farm (CLOSED); restaurant review

Fish & Farm  CLOSED  399 Taylor St./Ellis St., downtown, (415) 474-FISH. D Tu-Sun; $$$.

Invitingly decorated like an old-time train station cafĂ©, with a sprinkling of half-moon booths and a dark cave-like atmosphere, this small venue strives to serve only sustainably farmed organic produce from nearby sources. The contemporary surf & turf menu includes tasty fish renditions—a cracker-crusted petrale sole is scrumptious—as well as some meat selections, including a slow braised lamb shoulder. A side of house-pickled vegetables is a must. The menu is also served in a separate bar area that is particularly suited to solo diners. Organic house cocktails and wines marry well with the menu items. The cookie plate makes a satisfying dessert.
