Plow Restaurant Review

: Walking into Plow, with its ultra-high ceilings, polished wood floors and simple tables and chairs, is like coming home. It's a stylish home, run by Joel Bleskacek and Maxine Siu, who met at Oakland’s Oliveto and have a shared love for simple food done well. The couple serves up plates of artisanal breakfast, lunch and weekend brunch to crowds wooed, in part, by striking views of San Francisco's downtown. Breakfast lovers are rewarded with a selection of the traditional (house-made granola and yogurt, omelets, a fried egg sandwich and carrot cake muffins that are sold till they sell out, then done for the day) or the unique (Chinese breakfast is two fried eggs, pork shoulder, jasmine rice ginger and chili paste). For lunch try a classic grilled cheese, fried chicken sandwich or a lacinato kale salad. If brunch is your thing, be warned: the lines are long but worth it for the chance to experience fluffy lemon ricotta pancakes or eggs Benedict with Fra'Mani ham. If you’re feeling sassy, don’t forget to order something to drink: the beer and wine list is short but nicely informed by the couple’s other neighborhood venture, wine shop Ruby Wine. The weekday menu is also available for take away --- no such luck for brunch, though.
