Last week, SFGate.com reported that a few months after a basement fire forced San Francisco’s iconic Alfred’s Steakhouse to close for a brief remodel, the 90-year-old institution, with its red leather seats and white table cloths, reopened to the public.
According to the report, at the core of the revamp, led by Daniel Patterson’s Alta Group, is an expanded menu with a starters and bar bites section that includes tater tots with smoked trout roe ($18), a riff on celery victor ($11), and fried shishito peppers ($10), among other things.
“We feel like every night at the restaurant should be a celebration, which is really what a steakhouse is all about,” Patterson said. “The changes we made to the food and drink menus were intended to reflect that spirit of fun and spontaneity.”
As before the fire, Patterson and his team want to keep the iconic elements of the space while moving the food forward into the more modern era.
This all sounds great to us!
