Park Chalet

Park_Chalet_dining_room
Park Chalet brunch was one of my main inspirations for putting together this site. Not because it had an especially inspiring bottomless brunch – the opposite, in fact. I found this place an an old list of bottomless brunches in SF, and after we all trekked all the way across the city and waited to sit down at our table, our waitress told us that they no longer offer bottomless. Ergo, the need for an up-to-date bottomless brunch site.
Still, the ride had been long and I was hung over, so we decided to just buy drinks the old fashioned way. This made Park Chalet brunch one of our more expensive ones, but the food was great and the setting is lovely. Park Chalet shares a building with Beach Chalet (you’ll find both in Golden Gate Park across from Ocean Beach), so when you go inside you’ll want to head straight back. The restaurant lets in a ton of natural light and opens out onto a large lawn where you can sip your cocktails and wait for a table. There are also frequently live bands during brunch time, and it all adds up to a great experience.
The Bottomless
Nothing to see here, folks. 
Park Chalet is a brewery (in conjunction with its sister restaurant, Beach Chalet – apparently there’s also a Lake Chalet in Oakland, but I’m not willing to venture that far), so it’s worth trying their sampler of eight 4 ounce beers. They’ve also got some very refreshing specialty lemonades (blueberry pomegranate and guava strawberry) – technically they don’t have alcohol, but the fine folks there are more than happy to dump some vodka in for five bucks.
The Food
I had the fish and chips, which were light, flaky and fresh. Other selections included some calamari and poke to start – both excellent – and the crab roll, which was nicely buttery and rich. You’re by the water, so just make sure you get yourself some seafood and you’ll do just fine.
The Service
Our waitress definitely disappointed us by telling us of the demise of their bottomless, but it’s tough to hold that against her. She also asked about my hangover (which was severe) to the table, which got a laugh. Beyond that, she was quick to get us food and refills and generally pleasant.
Overall
It’s tough for me to recommend Park Chalet brunch given their lack of bottomless, but the place does have plenty going for it. There’s live music, great seafood entrees and some refreshing drinks, all in a beautiful setting.

Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem

drteeth-front
Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem (or just Teeth if you’re Googling) is a bar in the Mission at 19th and Mission. In case that name sounds familiar, that’s because it was named after a famed Muppet band. It’s got a fantastic back patio that’s quite good-sized and is great on a sunny day. There’s cornhole sets outside and a shuffleboard table inside.
The Bottomless
$16, no time limit. Just regular old-fashioned OJ mimosas, and no carafes. Still, the champagne/OJ ratio was good and the refills came quickly.
They also have Bloody Marys by the pitcher (which are pricey) and a few other reasonably priced cocktails – Irish coffee, michelada and a mendota (beer and grapefruit juice – it’s actually pretty good).
The Food
The wings were great – we got the buffalo and BBQ, and the buffalo ones had just the right amount of kick. We also shared some breakfast totchos (tater tot nachos), which were smothered in cheese, meat and the usual nacho accouterments, and I got the breakfast burrito, which was decent sized and well done.
Nobody was willing to order the jelly donut fried chicken sandwich, a fact I remain disappointed about to this day. If you’ve tried one, please tell me how it was. 
The Service
Great – the waitress was attentive and made some good food suggestions, and she was happy to bring things out over a few courses so we could meander and play cornhole and shuffleboard while we made the most of the bottomless. Speaking of bottomless, my glass never went empty, so a big thumbs up from me.
Overall
If you’re in the Mission and it’s a nice day, go sit on the patio, order some totchos, play a little shuffleboard and have a nice leisurely brunch here.
