The Sardine Can has opened its doors.
Open from 3:00 pm daily, 26 Powell Street.
We went last night (how could we not, really?).
We started with a glass of red. Total tally was three glasses each, working our way up the list.
Then we had these gorgeous shrimp in spicy garlicky butter. Make sure you get some bread to sop up the juice.
This is the partially eaten rice with paella bits…we didn’t get there till pretty late for us, so we were hungry enough to forget about the camera.
These are the lovely piquillos rellenos, filled with bacalao.
And a special half-and-half serrano and pata negra plate that Chef made for us. I managed not to get a pic of the amazing albondigas, or the tomato and manchego toasts, both of which were unbelievably tasty.
And I completely failed on dessert pics; we had one of each, and a glass of sherry to go with each, and shared all of it.
Fantastic. Everything was great.
It’s tiny (19 seats), you may have to wait a little while. Sit at the bar if you can, and chat with Chefs Andrey and José. But go! don’t let the neighbourhood deter you. They open at 3:00 daily and I may be sneaking out of work early more than once this summer
