I like the informality of this San Francisco restaurant. The food is always good and the staff always friendly. The menu has a Southern influence so you can expect to see barbecue shrimp, gumbo, hush puppies, and of course fried chicken. It’s not part of my training diet, but I go hear when I want to celebrate and splurge. —Sir Russell Coutts
