Dear Good Lunchers,
This week we’re proud to announce we’ve teamed up with one of the coolest new restaurants in North Beach. In fact, Doc Ricketts is carrying forth the tradition of a deeply restored classic San Francisco spot that goes back to the city’s Barbary Coast days. The original owner back then-marine biologist Ed Ricketts-was friends with John Steinbeck and even inspired several characters in his novels. Before this space became the more recently known Purple Onion (the former club which helped launch many comedic careers, including Robin Williams and Zach Galifianakis), it was originally an underground bohemian salon space run by Ricketts who hosted all sorts of gatherings for artists, thinkers, and entertainers. Today, it’s gotten the perfect modern treatment dishing up simple, but refined Northern California cuisine for both lunch and dinner, while preserving this notorious space. The owners are aiming to make this “the best food and drink offerings of any live performance venue in town.”
As we’ve recently announced, part of our new service is being able to help you secure and organize venues for off-site events. This is a truly original spot in the city, with a smart and sophisticated makeover, and one to keep in mind the next time you’re looking to treat your crew to a special event.
On the other hand, if you’re just looking for a really tasty lunch menu that is upscale but not overly gourmet, then Doc Ricketts is a perfect option for an elevated lunch delivery. The restaurant takes a modern California approach to the French brasserie, serving up classic fried chicken and pulled pork sandwiches with some new fine touches, a burgermade with short ribs(!), and sophisticated twists on hearty seaside salads
and earthy soups. However, one of their claim-to-fames is their charcuterie, a delicate sampler of cold cuts made especially in-house for those who love the divine salty bites of cured meats.
Just login to our website and browse their menu, there are some awesome choices here. As always you can call, text or email us and let us know what you need.
