(the address for the day and the year to celebrate, with a generous per diem)
To celebrate Danielle's birthday, the SSP gals hit the latest talk of the
SF restaurant scene for a fun lunch at Per Diem restaurant in the Financial District.
Per Diem’s stunning floor-to-ceiling dark woods, exposed concrete, steel beams, wood-wrapped marble bar, large pillars, and a historic-alluding chandelier encased
in an over-sized glass lantern are among the restaurant’s striking features,
all of which illuminate a traditional, cozy atmosphere.
Per Diem’s head chef, Adam Hinojosa, formerly of Osteria and Café des Amis,
came to our table to wish Danielle a happy birthday and to say hello to our fabulous crew.
Roasted cauliflower soup
Roasted Pear and Chickories with bacon lardons, Shaft bleu cheese, sherry vinaigrette
Buccatini with Schmitz Ranch pork ragu ala arrabiatta, shaved pecorino, crispy basil leaf
Margherita pizzetta with burrata, cherry tomatoes, fresh basil
Tagliatelle with mussels, chervil breadcrumbs in saffron broth
Truffle and Tomato Brisket lasangetta with bloomsdale spinach and house made ricotta
Desserts didn’t miss a beat, including a deliciously creamy and tangy panna cotta!
We give Per Diem and Danielle 43 stars for being beyond spectacular.
Happy Birthday Danielle!
