SF: Snacks and Drinks at Lazy Bear

The Michael Corleon

 

On my last trip to San Francisco, I visited a truly fun place called Lazy Bear. It’s a tasting menu sort of restaurant but if you know the right people, you can head upstairs for drinks.

After some bubbles, we ordered a few cocktails. I had the Michael Corleon which was like a warm whisky hug.

Stalk Market

 

My friend tried their martini variation, the Stalk Market. I thought it was a perfect savory drink.

pork cheeks

 

Then the kitchen sent over a dish the diners were enjoying downstairs. The pork cheeks were simply amazing and the best pork cheeks I ever had. They were so tender and delicious. I was really sad when my two and half bites were done. I had secretly wished my friend wouldn’t want to share the last bite but of course he did. I started thinking $195 (without booze!) wasn’t that much if the restaurant serves 15+ courses (ahaha).

Blueberry Hill

Next we had a few fruity drinks. The Blueberry Hill’s corn whiskey was smoothed out by the blueberry liqueur.

Blueberry Hill – corn whiskey, rainwater madeira, house creme de myrtille, Gran Classico

With a Cherry on Top

 

With a Cherry on Top was a great name for a drink and came beautifully garnished with a Brooks cherry. The navy strength gin was tamed by the grapefruit wine but also went well with the pear brandy. This is a fruity drink I can get behind.

mignardises

 

 

As we were preparing to go, the kitchen was again kind enough to send out the cute mignardises including their house made gummy bears and a couple of boozy coffee drinks.

I loved that the boozy coffee drinks were served in little lab glasses.

Lazy Bear was easily my favorite spot on this trip.
