No Other Italian Like It In The Mission

Flour + Water

It’s ironic now that I’m living in San Francisco to think it was in Miami Beach at Food & Wine’s Sobe Festival where I met Chef Thomas McNaughton the Chef of Flour + Water. Looking back on it now, he was quite memorable at the time since he was probably 27 (quite young for such an accomplished chef) and from San Francisco. The fact that he was from San Francisco (where I was contemplating moving to from New York City) around that time may be why I remembered him or maybe the delicious food or his good looks. Probably a combination of the three! 

Well…. three years later, I’m now a SF local and Flour + Water is one of my favorite spots. I frequent it as much as I can, or as often as I can get a reservation which is every few months. Each time I visit I’m still in love with the delicious rich food, the laid back chill atmosphere and the awesome vibe Thomas and his team have created. 

A few of my favorite dishes on the Menu at Flour + Water include the below. Hopefully you’ll fall in love with Flour + Water as much as I have and enjoy a lovely dining experience if you get lucky enough to score a resi or have the patience to do a walk in visit (which I’ve heard works for small groups). 2401 Harrison St, San Francisco, CA 94110

A delicious salad to start. The lettuce is so green and gorgeous!
Flour + Water
 The delicious wood oven pizzas. They are so soft and delicious you have to try them!

 Zucca Pizza

Such a gorgeous spread on the table from a recent Wine Club Dinner I hosted in Flour + Water’s Dough Room
Flour + Water
Teleme Sparpinocc with aceto Balsamico.  This isn’t always on the menu, however, a few times I’ve requested it they have one or two available from events in their private dough room so it’s worth asking….. It is beyond delicate, with a light cheese pasta in a Balsamic Reduction. Love!!!

 Campanelle with brasied pork, golden snow peas & lemon basil

Hen Involtino beyond juicy and delicious I highly recommend this dish.
Flour + Water
Roasted Carrots with Pistachio, Sultano and Lemon Verbena

Strawberry panna cotta with cornmeal shortbread and rubarb

 Chocolate Budino with espresso cream and sea salt. It’s a deliciously light yet rich chocolate dessert. Delicious!

    Thanks for the recommendation. I’m in the city quite often and with so many restaurants, it’s hard to choose which one to pick to eat at! Will be trying this one soon. 🙂
