The Rich Still Different from You and Me

Posted By on Thu, Oct 2, 2008 at 12:15 PM


Despite the sky falling over most of the U.S. (check the value of your 401(k) lately?), it appears there are still those in SF with a leetle extra cash in their jeans, who are willing to splurge big bucks on a hamburger - and a glass or two of red to slosh it down with.

Well, Spruce, the well-reviewed (including by us) Pacific Heights restaurant, thinks - and hopes - so. It's just introduced Burgers & Burgundy, every Sunday night through November, at which you can order a $14 burger (served atop a housebaked English muffin, with pickled onions, zucchini, and remoulade) and glasses of boutique red Burgundy from Spruce's award-wining wine list -- at $12, $25, and, yikes, $50 a glass. A tasting flight of all three will also be available at $40.

The rotating selection might include Saint Romain, Christophe Buisson 2006, Mercurey, Les Montots, Aubert de Villaine 2006, Nuits-Saint-Georges, Les Bousselots, Robert Chevillon 1999, and other varietals, including some not regularly available by the bottle.

If you have some extra change in your pocket, you can even "spruce" up your burger, as they put it, with housemade pancetta for $3 or seared foie gras for $13. But wine-pairing buffs might do well to hold the pickled onions. --Meredith Brody

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
