The best tiramisu in San Francisco
It's so lovely to be in the Bay Area. Driving up the 280, from the South Bay to San Francisco, on an absolutely gorgeous day makes me miss my Cabriolet oh so much. I had to sell my car when we moved to Manhattan last year. Being in California always reminds me of those sunny days when I had the top down all the way to work, despite the bad hair day that inevitably followed the morning commute.
I had an early dinner tonight with some close friends at Steps of Rome in North Beach. I usually don't like this touristy part of the city, but the traffic situation was out of control because of the gay parade so we didn't venture to parts of town (Haight Ashbury) that would have taken longer to get to.
Steps of Rome is a casual Italian trattoria that was voted Best Italian in 2004 for San Francisco. The most memorable part of my meal tonight was tiramisu - it was by far tastier than the ones I've had in many other places in the world. It was just the right level of moistness - not too gooey or too dry. The sweetness was perfect as well. As was the creaminess. And the freshness. What can I say? If you are ever in San Francisco, you have to stop by Steps of Rome and taste their tiramisu. It's like finding a bit of heaven on earth.
