San Francisco CA 94110
You’ll find a homey setting offering approachable yet modern fare at this San Francisco eatery. Run by James Beard Award-winning pastry chef Elizabeth Prueitt and baker Chad Robertson since 2005, Bar Tartine is sophisticated but unpretentious. Chef Nicolaus Balla pickles, smokes, and bakes seasonal ingredients for his monthly menus and offers dishes like beet and avocado salad alongside blood sausage with mushrooms. The cozy setting, right off a bustling street in the Mission District, evokes the comfort of your own home, but the menu tells you you’re in for a fine dining experience. Tartine Bakery is the restaurant's sister establishment, so the bread basket is a must. -- Anne Dolce

Nick Balla & Cortney Burns make food that sounds improbable-Hungarian dishes with Japanese influences--but tastes remarkable. Bonus: They make pickles, spices, sodas, cured meats & cheeses in house.
Get the smoked potatoes!

Nic Balla and Cortney Burns churn out a constantly changing menu, inspired by Eastern Europe but sourced locally (and often fermented in house), accompanied by Chad Robertson's stellar loaves.
Chicken- delicious. Stay AWAY from the orange gimlet that tastes like dish soap gone bad.
Thanks to Nick Balla's ahead-of-the-curve Eastern European menus, this rustic neighborhood staple continues to be one of the hottest reservations in town. [Eater 38 Member]

Bar Tartine’s menu is an evolving theater for Chef Chad Robertson’s restless enthusiasms. The latest? Sweet Kamut toast grilled to a chewy crunch with bottarga, dried mushrooms, and dulse seaweed.

On the weekend, sample the open-face smørrebrød. A sourdough sprouted rye pairs perfectly with Quark cheese and a tapenade made from pickled green walnuts:
