Ferry Building, SF, Il Cane Russo bistro -- Summer tomato bisque and the famous San Francisco Sourdough...Divine!!

Ferry Building, SF, Il Cane Russo bistro — Summer tomato bisque and the famous San Francisco Sourdough…Divine!!

Back from a weekend trip to San Francisco. Met my lovely Dad there. He lives in Sacramento, CA. He loves good food, too.

Saturday morning we paraded around the SF Ferry Building and sampled and sampled. He bought this ‘off-the-hook’ toffee covered in dark chocolate, almonds, and cinnamon. We couldn’t stop eating it.

The ‘meal highlight’ was provided by Il Cane Russo bistro, which offered seating on the wharf. As we ate the full activity of Bay — the boats and the bridges — surrounded us. It was ‘the perfect lunch.’

My sandwich -- pulled pork on sourdough, top with greens and aioli. (I think I made little piggie noises.)

Dad’s sandwich looked like mine with the sourdough but his was filled with a tomato and  feta combination. Lucky guy!

Greek salad with heirloom tomato. In the back you can see the 'pot o polenta.' Normally, I wouldn't order polenta, but I ended up helping Dad finish his off.

My Daddy, as we enjoyed our good fortune and great lunch spot out on the Ferry wharf.

How can you not want chips put in a cute little bag?? With a cow stamped on it, no less.

I wanted to take the whole plate of cookies, but I saved room for the dark chocolate toffee we had later.

I just had to make note of this beautiful fruit/flower arrangement.
