You’d just been bounding along aimlessly, tumbling through Italian restaurants and thinking ravioli dishes couldn’t possibly just be one giant pie-size orb of eggy, spinach-y, ricotta-y deliciousness.
Hard to imagine that was the same person as the one staring back at you in the mirror today.
And now, meet Plin, the much-anticipated new Italian spot from the man behind Seven Hills, opening Friday in the Mission.
It’s almost kind of comical, really. A shareable orb of Raviolo al Uovo. A couple rounds of Ambassadors (gin, lime, lemongrass syrup and Thai basil) from the full bar. An Alioto in the kitchen. A turquoise banquette beckoning in the distance. This spot is a date spot in such a way that makes other date spots now seem like... alleged date spots.
In the event that you’re curious what else they have here: sure, okay. It’s good to ask these kinds of questions. Because they also have fried lobster. And seafood lasagna. And chicken-liver-mousse lollipops.
They take three licks.
