Fish and Farm in SF

Restaurant is small and cozy
Fried Chicken
This week when in San Francisco I wanted to try something new.  I tripped upon Fish and Farm when going through Menu Pages and sorting on Fish Restaurants.  Fish and Farm is an unassuming restaurants, it is next to the Mark Twain Hotel on Taylor Street.  We had dinner early so when we got there it was relatively quiet.  The restaurant is small and cozy with large brown leather booths.  Our server Sarah was very attentive and offered us some suggestions on the menu.  I was with my friends Stephanie and Mark and we were very hungry after a long hard day of work.  I immediately ordered 2 appetizers the Dungeness Crab Cakes and the Vegetable Gnocchi.  The crab cakes had a crispy top layer and were full of fresh chunks of Dungeness Crab as far as crab cakes go pretty good.  The Vegetable Gnocchi was a huge surprise, it had celery, mushrooms, carrots in a delicious white cheese sauce.  On to to the entrees Mark had the Roasted Loch Duart Salmon with a Mustard Beurre Blanc sauce which was cooked perfectly, Stephanie got the Fried Chicken ( I really wanted this but I was committed to Seafood). Their was a lot of food on this plate, the did not skimp on the portion and the Chicken was very moist.  I had the Seafood Cioppino in Linguine with Scallops, Salmon, Clams and Mussels.  The sauce was light and had some heat to it so the flavors were perfect.  Overall the meal was great, the service was perfect and the value was terrific.  I plan to go back again
