I have dined many places over the course of my life. I have had a lot of memorable experiences in regards to meals, atmospheres, service, and memories. Not many have combined all of these features in one meal — Midi, located in the Financial District of San Francisco however, fulfilled this objective.
To start, both Ava and I had the Soup of the Day- it was an extremely delicate Asparagus and Lentil soup. It was broth based luckily so I was able to eat it. The overly exaggerated big bowl contrasted with the small yet fulfilling portions. All in all, this appetizer was a total winner.
The cocktails were out of this world as well. While I was carded for “ethical reasons” I was delighted with the interesting cocktails offered and the originality behind the drinks. I ordered The Lavender French- lavender-infused vodka, lemon juice, simple syrup, sparkling grüner veltliner served over ice.
For dinner, my mom ordered the special of the day which included most of the items featured in the dish below with an addition of a simple sauteed chicken on top. Fines Herbes Pappardelle asparagus, mixed mushrooms, sweet 100 tomato, green garlic, baby leeks, parmigiano-reggiano.
I ordered the Pan-roasted Alaskan Cod with truffles and fava beans. On the side, we ordered Roasted Peas and Mushrooms which were cooked to perfection and absolutely delicious.
From start to finish we had an amazing evening. Not only was Jeff, our waiter, totally attentive but the wonderful chef Michelle AND manager come up to introduce themselves to us. While the restaurant has been open less than 10 weeks, I realized very quickly just how big of a hit then restaurant will soon become.
