Spotted SF / Embarcadero / Coqueta
Still dreaming about my dinner at chef Michael Chiarello’s fabulous new waterfront restaurant, Coqueta. I had been eagerly waiting for my reservation to come up and I was not in the least bit disappointed. Everything was fabulous: the space, the ambience, the food, the drinks and especially the service. Each dish was beautifully presented and every bite was delish—we couldn’t stop ordering! Absolute favorites were the sunny side-up egg with shrimp and crispy potato + the pork shoulder loin with honey-chili glaze. As for the cocktails: the Silky Sangria was like scoops of sorbet in a silver bowl and the Sun Never Sets came with a meringue like topping. Both could’ve been dessert. But no, we saved room for churros and chocolate, too.
