This spot in the Ferry Building is connected to the specialty butcher next door, and accordingly they take their meat seriously. We like the lamb burger and the chili fries. Be warned though, the chili fries could be a whole meal by themselves - it’s essentially giant steak tips in some chili poured over enough fries to feed a small army.
