MarketBar Restaurant Review

: The Ferry Building's first restaurant takes its cue from what is available in the market that day. The changing dishes evoke San Francisco-California-Mediterranean fusion through a seafood lens. Seasonal starters such as sweet gem Caesar salad, prawn Louie, and pea leaf and pine nut flatbread lead to such hearty entrées as wild swordfish, grilled pork chops and pancetta-wrapped mahi mahi. Socializing is definitely on the menu here, as MarketBar attracts ferry commuters, farmers market shoppers and the downtown workforce; daily happy hours with discounted wine, beer and cocktails lubricate the social scene. Popular weekend brunches highlight comfort fare such as grits, smoked salmon bruschetta and fish ‘n’ chips. The dark wood interior features lots of windows and a long, welcoming bar. Outdoor tables invite diners --- and their doggies --- to soak up the sunshine.
