The Outerlands

In the middle of the Muni rails lay a corner bistro-like restaurant with wooden interior that a hippie vibe. I'm not quite sure if it's just called Outerlands or THE Outerlands but they are known for their organic menu. My friend Jena took me for my birthday and tonight we went again.

Tables were already set with glases, water and a candle in a jar.

 We ordered our favorite: savory bread pudding. Last time it just had mushrooms, gruyere and chives but today it came with chard, carmelized onions and gruyere. The pudding was made with those really crusty artisan breads.
 The poached asparagus with pork shank, pea shoots with a lemon meyer vinaigrette.
 Braised shortribs with greens, garlic risotto and artichoke hearts.

 Strawberry shortcake with coconut cream.
 Honey-Lavender panna cotta with a delicious sugar cookie wedge that was still warm.
It was kind of expensive but to eat good organic food like that was worth it.
