Get the Nueske's bacon-wrapped matzoh balls, a delightfully tasty paradox in food tradition. Happy hours yield half-off all bar items, which will prove useful at The Gorbals' full bar.
If you're willing to risk eternal perdition for a menu item, try the bacon matzo ball soup - the soft matzo infused with chicken soup contrast perfectly with the bacon.

Brie grits with berry compost!

A must for the single diner. Two options for seating: bar + chefs station. It's a 'this isn't awkward spot' for the Table for 1 crowd
Serving dinner Monday-Wednesday until 12am, Thursday-Saturday until 2am.
Onion burger,broccoli, bone marrow, squid inky fish so yum. :-)

The chef is best known as the kid who won the second season of "Top Chef." He builds dishes from the flavor up. These are not intellectual exercises.

Grilled gizzards and squid with lemon! And if they have Anchor Steam porter -- it's my fav dark beer esp being a San Franciscan!

The menu is small, but changes frequently. Try the Beef Bone Marrow, Cucumber Salad with Garbonzo, and Potato Latkes. Chef Ilan Hall dreams up the dishes has a young and well-trained staff.
