Description: A Stone's throw from San Francisco Bay on the Embarcadero, you can find a diner like no other -- above the entrance is a clock with the words "Don't Worry" [with the hands stopped at 5:05]. On the front door there's a simple admonition -- "No Crybabies."
Inside Fog City, the atmosphere delights, and the food brings back a steady stream of regulars and out-of-town visitors. Once you settle in, you realize that it is the familiar, relaxed atmosphere of the busy American diner, the Parisian bistro, updated and made to fit the surroundings of The City. Now you are ready to sit back and enjoy the food.
Cindy Pawlcyn has created a blend of familiar favorites [mostly with new twists] and a sparkling array of inventive new recipes. From the "Small Plates" section you can choose Crab Cakes or Baked Buffalo Mozzarella [and add some Jalapeno Corn Stix or a Cheddar Cheese Bun]; then you can include a Mushroom Salad with Fennel and Seasoned Pecans, add a Grilled Skirt Steak or a Chicken Curry Pot Pie or the fish of the day, and finish it off with a Chocolate Pecan Brownie or some Tapioca Pudding.
Just as she designed the menu at Fog City to be relaxed and unintimidating, so has she put the Fog City Diner Cookbook together as an easy-to-use standby in your kitchen. For those evenings when you want a variety of tastes or for those longer weekend days when you like to spend time preparing and enjoying your meals, you'll find Cindy's recipes a delightful starting point to a great time -- the next best thing to slipping into a booth at Fog City Diner.
