When we got an alert about a new restaurant opening in San Francisco, we sat up and took notice. After all, Northern California is known for its delectable cuisine. Newly opened on the food scene — Chef Chris Consentino’s Cockscomb.
It wasn’t even photos of menu items that made us swoon. It was the SoMa neighborhood’s venue located in a former shoe factory (Hello! Exposed concrete and wood, high ceilings and hanging balcony overlooking all the action.) and…
…elements that gave us a true glimpse into the personality of the venue. Yeah, we were suckers of these images of Consentino, a Top Chef Masters winner, with Cockscomb’s mascot…
In fact, we’re pretty sure the photo above is of San Francisco-based artists Jeremy Fish creating a custom piece for the restaurant.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, Consentino loves fowl, you say, but what about the food? With his bent for butchery and offal cookery showcasing San Francisco-centric eats, Consentino’s menu offers up everything from Baked Oysters to Benton’s Six-Year Country Ham to Pin Bone Steak.
Oh, and Cockscomb’s collection of regionally-produced gins should be sampled.
Go for the design, revel in the art and savor the cuisine. Cockscomb is a full-fledged sensory experience.
