Bullitt

Bullitt brunch

Bullitt brunch is served at one of our favorite bars, right in the middle of Polk in Russian Hill. If you haven’t already, give our review of their Wing Wednesday a read (or just go try the wings; they’re great). It’s a medium-sized space with a long bar and high tables alongside the wall opposite it. It’s also got one relatively large table, but generally I’d say you’re better off here with a small group just because of the setup. There are plenty of TVs, so this is a great place to catch brunch and some Saturday or Sunday morning football.

The Bottomless

They keep it simple here – just good old fashioned bottomless mimosas for $20. No carafes, but the place wasn’t very crowded when we got there and the service was good, so no complaints about speed. The mimosas came in mason jars (the preferred glassware of basic people) and were well made, with mostly champagne and a little bit of orange juice.

The Food

As with some of our other favorite sports bars in SF, the food is too good to be described as “bar food.” It’s not a huge menu, but everything is well done. I tried the breakfast totchos (tater tot nachos, for the uninitiated), which were very simple but excellent – just cheese, guac, salsa, jalapenos and special sauce on top of tots. A friend and I also split the Wake and Bacon, their grilled cheese sandwich. That was, again, simple but delicious – egg, cheese, bacon on some nicely buttered toasted bread. It also came with tomato soup, which definitely tasted homemade; too creamy and flavorful to come out of a can. Last up was the breakfast burrito, which was my least favorite of the three dishes but still solid.

The Service

We were there on Saturday at about 12:30 and the place was maybe half full. Our waitress was pleasant and reasonably fast, and the mimosa refills generally came before anyone’s glass went empty.

Overall

Bullitt brunch has way better food than you’d expect at what is just a good, old-fashioned neighborhood sports bar. The only downside is it’s not the best place to accommodate huge groups, but if you’ve got a few friends who want to get some food and plenty of drinks while watching the game, this is a great place for that.

Uva Enoteca

uva enoteca

Uva Enoteca is on Haight St. in Hayes Valley, and while it bills itself as a wine bar, it also has some excellent small plates and pizzas. The space is small, so make sure you make a reservation, especially if you’ve got a large group. We had a reservation at 1:15 and arrived on time, but because there were a couple of large tables still drinking bellinis, we had to wait about 20 minutes to get seated.

The Bottomless

$15 for 2.5 hours of bottomless bellinis, though I doubt they’d cut you off. Brunch service stops at 3, so we weren’t able to test the limit. Still, they brought us out a carafe at about 3:15, so they hardly seem like sticklers for the rules.

The bellinis come by the carafe, and each carafe is a bottle of champagne and a can of peach juice. A little sweet for my taste, but certainly not bad. At one point we had to wait a few minutes for refills, and the waitress informed us they just needed to chill more champagne. Besides that, though, our glasses never hit the bottom.

The Food

The brunch menu at Uva Enoteca is somewhat limited, but there are still solid breakfast and lunch options. Our table skewed towards lunch, mostly getting pizzas. I went for the kale pizza with no kale, which sounds counterintuitive, except that it’s really a sausage pizza with kale on it. It was excellent – fairly thin and very crisp, and the mozzarella was clearly very fresh.

We also had a boar bolognese lasagna at the table that get rave reviews and a side of biscuits that were freshly baked, flaky and drizzled with honey.

The Service

There were only a couple of people working in the front of the house, but they were nonetheless very attentive. The waitress/hostess sat us at the bar while we waited for our table (and apologized for the delay), and she got our mimosas started plus gave us complimentary biscuits. Thumbs up.

Overall

Uva Enoteca offers a nice, upscale experience in an intimate setting, and the staff is pleasant and attentive. The food is excellent, with ingredients notable for their freshness, and the bellinis come out quickly and are reasonable priced. This is definitely one bottomless brunch to try.
