Chow, San Francisco, CA

Chow Restaurant Review

: Chow may have been first to catch the scent of the Americana-comfort food trend, and it is still top dog. The secret: soul-satisfying food in hearty portions at bargain prices. Try the meaty flatiron steak with roasted potatoes and watercress salad, or the roasted half-chicken served with mashed potatoes and a zippy relish. Noodles come with both Asian and Mediterranean inspiration. Desserts always get attention here, especially the gingerbread cake with caramel sauce and the devilishly tasty chocolate cake. The well-worn surroundings, complete with Hershey cocoa cans filled with napkin-wrapped flatware, complement the casual, family-friendly vibe and easygoing staff.
