So primitive that when a nice person pulls some tantalizing grilled sirloin from the flame and brings it to you, it won’t even come with a beer Negroni.
Unless you ordered one.
Rub your hands together briskly for TBD, a great-outdoors-minded new spot that’s what a campfire would be if it were a pretty nice restaurant, opening next week in SoMa.
First and most importantly: yes, TBD is the name. The permanent name. Tomorrow it won’t suddenly be called “The Place That Looks Like a Campground,” or “Flo’s.” So now, please focus on the ram’s heads. You’ll be met with a gentle camping vibe amid all the sleekness, with oil lamps, wool blankets, a 1,200-pound eucalyptus trunk and, most importantly, that well-tended fire—so this is for when you’re on a date of the non-fancy variety, or with a bunch of friends. Of the non-fancy variety.
And most everything you’ll care about comes from the grill or the hearth—they’ll get you pork andouille and lamb belly and roasted duck cassoulet. Call a day ahead, and they’ll even do a whole roast duck, side of beef or rotisserie turkey. Any of which will fill in the gaps between your beer Negronis, beer Old Fashioneds and beer margaritas.
