THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Andalu Restaurant Review

: Andalu answers San Francisco's call for a casually elegant, comfortably chic nightspot that's not hard on the wallet. The self-proclaimed small plates, big flavors menu and approachable wine list, including 35 wines by the glass, attract a mixed and energetic crowd. The long bar and small cocktail tables in the back are perfect for a quick bite and a pitcher of luscious sangrĂ­a. Well-trained servers help to pace the small plates menu to create an experience akin to fine dining. Start with the playful Cambazola cheese fondue paired nicely with Fuji apples and Asian pears. The ahi tartare tacos are decidedly international doused with chilies, lime juice and mango salsa. A plump, moist Dungeness crab cake plate provides some Middle Eastern flair with a harissa mayo. Larger plates, like the bacon-wrapped pork tenderloin or the Coca-Cola-braised spare ribs, will satisfy even the heartiest of appetites. Be sure to leave room for the spectacular made-to-order doughnut holes spiked with Castillian hot cocoa.
