    Refined California-French in a casual setting. Menus are always intuitive based on what's available. -Laurine Wickett, Top Chef

    Thanks to Nick Balla's ahead-of-the-curve Eastern European menus, this rustic neighborhood staple continues to be one of the hottest reservations in town. [Eater 38 Member]

  • Serious Eats

    Nic Balla and Cortney Burns churn out a constantly changing menu, inspired by Eastern Europe but sourced locally (and often fermented in house), accompanied by Chad Robertson's stellar loaves.

    On the weekend, sample the open-face smørrebrød. A sourdough sprouted rye pairs perfectly with Quark cheese and a tapenade made from pickled green walnuts: Read more

    Bar Tartine’s menu is an evolving theater for Chef Chad Robertson’s restless enthusiasms. The latest? Sweet Kamut toast grilled to a chewy crunch with bottarga, dried mushrooms, and dulse seaweed.

    It's classy, it's dark and it's delicious. Bone marrows are off the hook. Bring a date and show her how you bone down marrows.

    Chicken- delicious. Stay AWAY from the orange gimlet that tastes like dish soap gone bad.

  • Max T.

    Their Smørrebrød make the Danish dish more accessible without compromising authenticity or quality. Delicious grown-ups brunch.

    Simply you can't go wrong! They have very nice food, spiced up with some Hungarian style. Brunch recommendations: paprika cheese spread, potato flat bread, smoked potatos. The bread is also gorgeous!

    Cranky waiter + 1.5 hrs to get food...yikes! After the waiter picked up our check he said, "can they just leave now". Disappointing service food was good though.

    The Lentil Croquettes at Bar Tartine For a sort of Hungarian/Indian take on falafel, chef Nicolaus Balla fries bright green balls of sprouted lentils that are then paired with house-cultured kefir.

  • Clara D.

    The large sharable plate was neither large nor sharable. Disappointing.

    Unsurprisingly the bread is awesome. Also recommend the potato flatbread - fried goodness with sour cream and dill. Get apple half and half (apple mint soda and iced tea) in custom ceramic glasses.

  • Lien T.

    Really enjoyed the scarlets, smoked potatoes and cheese dumpling. Was less impressed with beef tartare which was ok (and didn't compare to Auberge's that I had recently)

    Lien Tran · January 5
  • Sammy G.

    Wow--food was all delicious and service was great. Brisket toast and potato flatbread were the highlights!
