EATING: The new brunch menu at Corridor in San Francisco // CRAVE: That fried chicken sandwich!
After one year in business, Corridor has successfully solidified its spot as one of the many innovative, upscale restaurant offering delicious Cal-American cuisine in San Francisco. Capitalizing on its success, the restaurant has focused efforts on combining its sit-down and cafe options into one Corridor restaurant and just launched a new Saturday-only brunch menu. The restaurant belongs to the Hi Neighbor Hospitality Group, the same team that operates other San Francisco gems such as Trestle and Stones Throw. The new brunch menu offers a mix of high-end comfort food, sinful breakfast sandwiches, and thick butter fried pancakes. Whether you’re popping in for bottomless mimosas or catching a bite before a jazz show, make Corridor your Mid-Market go-to.
Start your brunch off with a tropical pineapple lime mimosa, fruity bellini, or go all in with bottomless mimosas for the table.
Corridor is situated on the corner of Van Ness and Fell Street, making the most of a location with huge, sweeping two-story windows that let in beautiful, natural light.
Must-order dishes include a salty corned beef hash with poached eggs and deliciously creamy soft scrambled eggs.
The soft scrambled eggs are prepared with seasonal vegetables such as roasted mushrooms and asparagus and finished with goat cheese.
Salmon fans will enjoy the elegant smoked salmon duo with sieved eggs, capers, red onions, and toast.
One of the best items on the menu is their trademark Monkey Bread. This pull-apart bread is the perfect blend of savory spices, chives, and cheddar cheese, served with a side of herb dip.
For guests more interested in lunch items, the smoked trout and farro salad offers a blend of confit potato, dill, and horseradish vinaigrette.
Vegetarians will enjoy the 5 Pea Salad with peas, mint, preserved lemon, a dollop of ricotta and a crispy slice of brioche.
In the mood for fried chicken? Don’t miss the fried chicken sandwich with a flawless blend of cabbage and romaine slaw and the chef’s secret hot sauce.
The Maine-Style Shrimp Roll is a hearty, but light option. Shrimp, avocado, and Old Bay aioli on a griddled brioche come together for one savory sandwich.
Of course, every brunch needs something savory and something sweet. Opt for a plate of Neopolitan-style donuts smothered in chocolate and slices of strawberries with a hint of vanilla cream.
Guests should also get a butter fried pancake for the table to share. This thick pancake is perfectly moist, topped with a pat of butter and maple syrup. If you’re feeling extra ambitious, get it stuffed with chocolate, hazelnuts and bananas!
Snag a seat at the modern bar or request a table upstairs for a more intimate, private setting.
