After working at a number of SF’s top restaurants, veteran sommelier Paul Einbund has settled down at this neighborhood charmer in the Mission, named for his father. Unsurprisingly, The Morris boasts a selection of wine, top-notch cocktails and a sophisticated, craveable comfort-food menu.
Quell your hunger with slices of Tartine country loaf—baked just down the street—as you peruse the menu with appealing bites both small (pork cracklins with honey and Aleppo pepper) and large (charred broccolini with succulent grilled squid in chili-lime dressing). They have an extensive list of housemade charcuterie and the pâte de Campagne is a can't miss. Their signature smoked duck, brined for two days and aged for four, is a smoky, tender and meaty marvel.
