After months of trying to get a reservation, I finally had the chance to eat at Wayfare Tavern, Tyler Florence's new restaurant, in downtown San Francisco. The reservation was made a month in advance, and I have known for the past three weeks what I would be ordering.
Yes, making a reservation a month in advance may seem a little overboard, but for those who live in San Francisco this is a relatively normal protocol, especially when you want to go somewhere new and hot and eat earlier than 9:30 p.m. So after staring at the menu online for a month, I finally got to eat this much anticipated meal, and let me tell you it was DEFINITELY worth the wait!
Not only is the food amazing, but the decor and service is absolutely charming. I couldn't have imagined a better way to spend my birthday, than tucked away in a tavern, by an open fire, eating delicious food with Marc. Thanks Tyler Florence (and Marc of course) for making my birthday wishes come true.
