Bachelor Reviews: Beerworks In San Francisco

When Your Ready…

to venture out of the city of San Francisco & cross the Golden Gate Bridge, head north to Mill Valley. This small town in the narrow wooded canyons offers more than beautiful hiking trails. It’s home to one of the best new restaurants around, Beerworks!

You Must Go…

to Beerworks because executive chef, David Wilcox, formerly from Gjelina in Venice, CA; is creating some masterful dishes. The visually stunning artwork David calls, “small plates” are well thought-out masterpieces.

Show That You…

know this place is SIMPLE yet DIVINE. They serve over 60 beers, half a dozen -which are brewed in house, and offer some of California’s best bar eats. Don’t worry about weighing your night down with heavy foods! David focuses on offering the best seasonal vegetables in dishes so packed with flavor, your date will just want to scream- GIVE ME MORE!!!!

To Get It Going…

order 5-7 small plates, a couple home brews and start your journey through the best our land has to offer. Order a couple of my favorites, the “Kampachi Crudo;” thin slices of the freshest fish, sesame seeds, parsley and a drizzle of olive oil. Also, get the “Avocado Salad;” the creamiest avocados, pickled watermelon radish, and topped with smoked tomato oil. Don’t stop there, get the “Grilled Chicories;” with smoked trout, and a fried egg. Need I say more?

Now You Need…

a bit more food so, what else should you get. Order the “Wild Rice;” with shitake mushrooms, a Peruvian style sauce with chocolate, and confit tomatoes. Finish off your dinner with a fresh “Whole Trout” served with grilled chicories, preserved lemons, tomatoes, and house-made harissa.

What’s The Cost:

Don’t Think You Can…

change how or what you want. Let the chef do what he does best, all you have to do is enjoy. What keeps this place unique is that “Modifications and Substitutions, Politely Declined.”
