I had been very fond of Bacar...had. I have been on the search for San Francisco's best Pork Chop, and until recent history, Bacar had held that title. Last Friday (5/18) I had gone to Bacar expecting to enjoy one of San Francisco's culinary treats and was devistated to find the Pork Chop missing form the menu. Then I politely asked the waiter, "Where's the F#%$ing Pork Chop?" The automated responses began. "We have a number of wonderful choices on the menu which are just as good as the Pork Chop."
What a load of cr#p!
The Pork Chop was a work of art. A draw to that otherwise non-descript yuppie hang out. Sure the Cocktails are good, but this is San Francisco, there are great bars all over the place. Sure the live Jazz is a nice touch, but it is not essential to the overall experience. What makes a restaurant is the cuisine, and this places menu has been given its deathblow.
The ownership of Bacar had better find a way out of this pickle, as their defining dish has left the building. I understand when a talented Chef leaves an establishment there will be change. And in this case, the Chef left with not only the Pork Chop Recepie, but the entire future of Bacar.
Thanks Bacar for mentioning that the Chef had left. Thanks for being up front about the menu change.
Oh yeah, your trying to salvage your business, and kept this little tid bit of information to yourself.
Until the Pork Chop returns in all its glory, me and my Pork Chop loving minions will be dining elseware.
