American. At the busy intersection of Market and Church, Home is a small refuge of comfort. The covered outdoor patio and bar is an intimate spot for happy hour cocktails in the Castro and signature dishes like Macaroni and Cheese and Iceberg wedge salads make Home a broken-in, neighborhood haunt.
Within any melting pot of cultures, diversity is bound to be present. And diversity, my friends, can be a good thing especially when it comes to food and, in this case, comfort food. In San Francisco in particular, one's idea of comfort food may differ greatly from his neighbors. To me, a midwestern transplant, comfort food equals mac and cheese and pot pies. To a person of Indian descent, a spicy curry might be the first thing that comes to mind. To a friend of Latino descent, any dish containing pork and chiles would most certainly do the trick. So where to go to make everyone happy? Where else, other than Home. And with the recent kitchen take-over by former sous chef, Jeff Banker, expect things to get even more diverse at Home. - Heather Thompson
