A Hamburger Today David Kover 11 comments

Over the course of several visits to Zuni Cafe, I've found a lot to like in their patty—I just wish they'd stop serving it on that darned focaccia bun. More

NectarineGate: Zuni Cafe's $8 Nectarine Dessert Is Actually $4.50

Erin Zimmer 17 comments

Earlier this week, we told you about a supposed $8 Blossom Bluff Nectarine on the dessert menu at San Francisco's Zuni Cafe. Ridiculous surcharge for a single piece of fruit, right? A Zuni Cafe representative chimed in to clear up the misunderstanding: It should be $4.50. "The only $8.00 item on the menu was a pot de crème." Ridiculous still, but maybe less ridiculous?

After the jump, a tasty video from the Chronicle.... More

I must admit I was in a lousy mood yesterday when I started to make my Zuni Roast Chicken and Bread Salad. The Giants had once again looked awful, this time against the Packers (somebody please get the Giants a new coach, please, I am begging you), and I am not one of those people who cooks for therapeutic reasons. Zuni Cafe chef-owner Judy Rodgers believes that multitasking is essential to successfully cooking her food, but I quickly found out that I, for one, cannot handle doing two things at once in the kitchen, especially if both require split-second timing....
