This was a special weekend in San Francisco. It was our crimson icon's 75th Birthday. With a fireworks show that rivaled the most spectacular that many have witnessed in their entire lives, SF went all out for this memorable celebration.
We didn't really do her justice, but my dining companion made this tuna tartare dedication during our dinner at Bourbon Steak. Served using ahi tuna, this classic Mina dish is prepared with pine nuts, mint, sesame oil, and scotch bonnet pepper.
Happy Birthday, Golden Gate. Thank you so much for being a reliable, sturdy neighbor all these years. You've trail blazed my ventures to the Wine Country and Marin year after year, and no matter how many times we've met, I've remained in constant awe of your beauty and stature.
With love and gratitude,
