Tapas/Small Plates. Medjool is just one of the restaurants helping to revitalize up and coming hotspot, the Mission District. A swank and sexy bar gives way to a crowded dining room handing out Italian, French, Spanish, Moroccan, Tunisian and Middle Eastern small plates to share with companions. Options range from a Middle Eastern mezze plate featuring hummus, baba ghanoush, and tabbouleh; to the Tunisian tombo tuna with egg briouats. A separate cafe menu serves food all day long. You can come to the Medjool restaurant for an espresso and an omelette in the morning or a panini at lunch.
Medjool, in the heart of San Francisco’s colorful Mission District, has taken the sun-drenched flavors and seductive aromas of the Mediterranean and added a decidedly California flair. With its cutting edge architecture and a seductively new take on “comfort food”, Medjool is truly an oasis in the middle of a revitalized neighborhood.
Like its namesake fruit found in the tombs of the Pharaohs, Medjool Café, Restaurant and Bar transforms what was once the food of royalty and makes it affordable for everyone with “small plates” inspired by the diverse cuisines of southern France, Italy, Spain, Morocco, Tunisia and parts of the Middle East.
