palio d'asti

So tomorrow is St. Patrick’s Day and San Francisco will be undoubtedly covered in shamrocks, green glitter and faux-leprechauns, thanks to a full calendar of St. Patty’s events. But at Palio d’Asti, Irish traditions will mix with Italian as the restaurant celebrates “Italian Father’s Day.”The menu includes eight starters, such as house pickled vegetables, venetian style grab stuffeded deviled eggs and polenta home fries. Then there will be three risottos: braised lamb, Tuscan-style spicy seafood, or wild smoked mushrooms. Next are the main courses of spicy prawns, rosemary and garlic crusted lemon chicken, slow roasted pork loin and to get in the St. Patrick’s Day spirit, a platter of corned beef and cabbage.  Dessert will be an offering of assorted pastries.

The pre-fixe meal is $65 for adults and pay-your-age for children under 13.

You can make reservations via OpenTable or by calling 415.658.9295.
