Prospect comes from the team that brought us Boulevard, the oft-lauded staple of the SF food scene. Located in the Infinity Towers, the spacious restaurant was filled with well dressed older diners that really made us felt out of place. But let’s get to the food:
For a cocktail, we shared the Cora (11) tequila, pomegranate-ginger molasses grapefruit, creole bitters, and lime.
For the appetizer, we shared the creamy polenta with a slow poached egg and crispy cheese. I forgot the original name of this dish but that was basically what it was. Although I LOVE my polenta and my poached eggs, unfortunately the textures were to similar and the two entities were lost in the dish. The crispy on the other hand was nice salty-bite to the extra creaminess of the dish.
This duck (28) came prepared three ways, a pan seared duck breast, a sou vide thigh, and a duck roulade with figs and nuts. All three were tasty but in ranking I love the roulade (love the sweetness of the figs, the crunchy of the nuts, and the salty of the duck), then breast (juicy and moist), and finally the thigh (a little too fatty and not as savory as the others).
While the duck’s portion might leave something to the imagination, the Berkshire pork chop (28) filled the whole plate. The pork chop was moist, succulent, and flavorful fully living up to the expectations.
The espresso ice cream sandwich dessert came free for the birthday boy! These were delicious although I wished for a little bit more coffee flavor (but that could just be my coffee-loving bias!)
