This week's Founder Fridays is brought to us by a food innovator – Lisa Fetterman of Nomiku. Nomiku makes a home immersion circulator that is sweeping the nation of hardcore at-home cooks. We've had some of this home immersion circulated stuff, and man is it good.
Unsurprisingly, Lisa is an avid consumer of the #EEEEEATS in restaurant form as well. She probably writes it off as R&D; spending. Genius. Have to say we did not know you could get drinks at Saison, but I guess we don't want to feel sad that we can't afford the real meal. And apparently Rintaro is where the "food elite" hang out. We are not plugged-in enough to know that.
So if you're looking for some perfectly cooked home chicken/steak/lamb/what have you, check out Nomiku. Lisa is giving the Infatuation team $100 off with the code NOMFATUATION, so now it's practically a necessary buy. Looking forward to even more 63 degree eggs around town.
Lisa's "Perfect For" Picks
Cockscomb (564 4th St.) - "The food here is like "Game of Thrones" with a roasted pig's head on the menu. Chris Cosentino is a rebel skater celebrity chef who actually still sweats behind the line. It feels like he's having fun doing and my taste buds benefit. Come here absolutely ravenous."
Saison (178 Townsend St.) - "I'm sad that most people don't know they can sit at the bar at Saison for delicious drinks. They are mostly reasonably priced, and you will be able to pay your rent after a visit. It's also a great way to access their vertiginous wine cellar. The bar is elegant and quiet, and it is the perfect place to talk business."
The Progress (1525 Fillmore St.) - "The family style dishes are perfect for 6+ people. The chefs can size the entrees depending on your group size and the flavors there are dazzling. Dining there is like watching a Russian gymnast during the Olympics, she makes it look easy."
Breakfast With Old Friends
Plow (1299 18th St.) - "If you stay over at my house from out of town, I'm taking you to Plow in the morning. We'll put our names on the list and catch up for an hour while we wait for our table. The meal will be as comforting as your presence."
Izakaya Rintaro (82 14th St.) - "This is where the food elite find their respite. Rintaro is one of the only real izakayas I've been able to find in SF. Our dearth of good ramen, Korean food, and izakaya fare was making me miss New York like crazy until I bit into a juicy and fat piece of chicken butt and the day disappeared around me. I locked eyes with my sweetie and we nodded in satisfied unison."
