Yesterday, John and I dined at delarosa for lunch. We had just conducted a tasting for Waterloo Beverages and had some leftover beer we were drinking at the bar with the bartender. We were encouraged to try the Broccoli rabe and crescenza bruschetta. According to our barkeep, it just might be the best thing on the menu. Man, he wasn't joking. I, being generous yesterday, gave John the bigger piece. I swear we switched personalities yesterday at the meal. He was ravaging and I was eating slowly. Weird.
John continued to pull a Samwick when the Dungeness crab arancini arrived with a side of calabrese aioli for dipping. They were scrumptious. I mean, delicate Italian rice balls stuffed with succulent crab, is just too good too be true. And for some reason, I was savoring each bite. I must of had some buzz.
I was drinking the Linden St. Black Lager. And the Linden St. Common Lager as well. They both paired tremendously well with the Hot salami, coppa, tomato and diavolicchio pizza. We were really excited about this pizza. We seem to always go for this style. I recall, just last week, in fact. I think we were at delarosa's sister Beretta and got something pretty similar. Who knew you could find a good pizza in San Francisco?!
