Another good reason to revisit Jack London Square, which has been trying hard to reinvent itself. With this restaurant, I think things are going in the right direction.
Came here for lunch on a beautiful, sunny day in June - sat outside with a view of the harbor. The menu has so many interesting things. The chef adds peppers to many of the dishes to make the flavors Latin-style. I had the crab deviled eggs drizzled with chipotle aoli - 4 large eggs, delicious! Also, the grilled peppers with Trapani sea salt were enough for the table to share. My companions had the duck confit tacos (like carnitas, only with duck), filled with lots of crunchy veggies - and the pork tamale. I would order either next time. The wine list has many interesting choices, which can be ordered by the glass, carafe, or bottle. One friend had a cocktail similar to a gin & tonic, only with cucumber and basil added - refreshing! Desserts: passion fruit crème brulee and the famous chocolate bread pudding. I am passionate about passion fruit and this dessert was a little disappointing - not enough tart passion fruit puree. I did mention this and hopefully the chef will indulge an improvement:) But the chocolate bread pudding was all that was hoped for! This place is wonderful and I hope to return for dinner soon.
