Hoffmann’s is a neighborhood restaurant on the border of the Mission. The food is consistent, good, and creative where it counts. They deserve to have more business than they seem to be getting, but I’ll note they’ve been a savior on Friday nights where we didn’t feel like dealing with Friday night crowds.
I’ve returned to the grilled romaine salad a few times. Grilling brings out flavors you’d never know about from eating Caesar salad, and it retains a fresh, rather than carbonized, crunch. Ripe avocados and buttermilk dressing match the mellowness of the romaine.
I also like the Gruyere, Butternut Squash & Crispy Sage spaetzle. Good, slightly nutty, flavors and the texture is more fulfilling than mac and cheese.
Last night they had a pork belly special, that was deliciously paired with pomegranate seeds and farro.
