Half of a great restaurant experience is working with your server to make sure you order the right things ours was Katie and she was a very good food guide. Bar Tartine is a family style restaurant which happens to be my favorite kind because I can share without getting in trouble. We started with the brine pickled root veggies mostly colorful Beets and Carrots which was a good palate cleanser. This was quickly followed by the Smoked Potatoes with Black Garlic which was the memorable food we had eaten in months. It is one of those seemingly simple dishes that you can still taste one week later because it left it's own signature on our palate. We had ordered a spread of Cultured Squash in Sunchoke Oil which accompanied the most amazing bread I had had. The bread baked at Tartine had the moist texture of a great bread pudding and was so sweet and flavorful. The bread needed no topping it was great by itself. Next up was Kale with Sunflower Tahini, Rye and Yoghurt this is a healthy dish I have a hard time remembering without a picture prompt, it was good but it was not as memorable as other parts of the meal.

So if you have a chance to get into Bar Tartine you should grab it this a great experience with a nice local vibe.
