The historical ~23 CLUB~ in Brisbane has a new chef as of six weeks ago: Steve Moran, a proud San Francisco native. The food will focus on seasonally available ingredients in simple preparations, including housemade sausage from an old family recipe, and burgers are served on a crusty French roll (oh so San Francisco). The new bar menu features quality, simple classics with housemade touches like brandied cherries. They feature a something-for-everyone range of musical acts, from country and western to zydeco to jazz, so be sure to bring your boogie shoes. There is also an outdoor patio for catching the last of the sunshine before the wall of fog moves in. The kitchen is open daily 3pm-10pm, bar 3pm-2am, though be warned that if the bar is slow, they may close earlier. 23 Visitacion Ave. at Mariposa, Brisbane, 415-467-7717.
