For Me, It’s Not…

“It’s no longer The City. It’s not the fog-lined streets Herb Caen described as a woman putting on her slip and sneaking out in the pre-dawn shadows of Sunday morning. It’s not the foghorn quieting conversation over cocktail hour. It’s not finding comfort in all the similarly octagon-tiled bathroom floors of Pacific Heights.” (Pridgen/DPBSports)

My City That Was...

Having lived in “The City” for three years after spending significant time there throughout two decades preceding, the idea of moving back occasionally crosses my mind.  Then when I read articles such as this quoted above, I’m reminded that my occasional idea is not exactly a good one, sadly enough.  While there seem to be more ways that ever to say “it’s not,” perhaps the hardest one of all, personally speaking, is to say:  “It’s not for me (in more ways than it is).”

But then, change comes to everyone and everything, as fortunately and unfortunately very little remains the same forever.  On that note, check with me in five years for an update to my thoughts on living in San Francisco.  That change might come sooner than we think.

When in Inverness…

Vladimir's Czech Restaurant

A unique, unexpected and tasty surprise it is.  Quietly tucked away along Marin County’s Sir Francis Drake Boulevard, just a few miles northwest of Point Reyes in the little town of Inverness, lies a family-run dining establishment that’s been around for quite some time.  Suffice to say, it immediately called to me.  Once the menu was before my eyes on the front door, I knew this would be the site of my evening’s meal.  In the end, disappointment was nowhere to be found.  The garlic rabbit proved as delicious as it sounded.  As such, I highly recommend the Vladimir’s experience, whenever you might wander into the area.  Just be sure you have cash or a checkbook, as credit cards are an unknown concept.  Fortunately, friendly service is not!

Doing It Right.

The portions are large and the temperature hot!  While unfortunately this cannot always be said for many popular dining establishments, thankfully one of my San Francisco favorites knows what’s important.  My previous glowing review stands, even if liver is no longer a daily option.  From the rich and hearty beef bourguignonne to one sizable and flavorful marsala pork chop, my menu exploration will most certainly continue.  I highly recommend your own visit the next time you find yourself on the Marina-Presidio border.  It’s refreshingly clear that now after 40 years of practice, Liverpool Lil’s leads the way in doing it right.
