THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Show Dogs Restaurant Review

: Located smack-dab in the middle of one of San Francisco's dodgier districts, Show Dogs is a hidden winner. The restaurant was born into a good lineage --- it's the scrappy little brother of the elegant Foreign Cinema in the Mission. Yes, it's a sausage joint, but chef-owners Gayle Pirie and John Clark have brought exacting standards to this triangular storefront with a narrow outside patio. Show Dogs draws an eclectic mix of hipsters, dressed-up theatergoers and everyone in between. Choices include the house wild boar sausage with red wine poached cherries, house mustard and arugula. The burger on a pain de mie bun is nicely cooked and topped with special sauce, while the fried chicken sandwich, served on the same soft bun, is anointed with tangy slaw. Meat-avoiders can try the Field Roast vegetarian sausage. But it's the side of onion rings that shines: slim, crisp and salty, they need no dip. Beverages include a small selection of beers on tap, most locally produced, as well as a few California wines and artisanal non-alcoholic options.
