A San Francisco Girl's Down and Dirty Adventures in the Culinary Playground

I am using all of my willpower not to write a gushing post about Contigo, the new restaurant helmed by Brett. They don't open until Tuesday, but I had the privilege of attending one of their pre-opening dinners and holy fuckballs is it good. Now Brett is a friend of mine, and so you might be skeptical but I promise you, it is THAT good. I wouldn't be writing this at all if it wasn't.

I knew it would be, but I was wholly unprepared to be quite so blown away. Usually pre-opening dinners are a way to work out the kinks as it were, but I could see nary a kink in the 2+ hours I was there. That's something, considering our party of four tried 13 (yes, thirteen) different dishes.

I will save my real post for after they *really* open, which is this coming Tuesday. In the meantime, just go.
