Blissful Gracias Madre

The Chefs: Elizabeth and Gracias Madre

The Menu: The stellar taco plate, with black beans, fresh tortillas, sauteed greens, summer squash, and extra cashew cheese.

The Goods: Yes, I know that yesterday's post also featured Gracias Madre. Not to sound like a broken record, but we really love this place. Plus, today we had the extra excuse of out-of-town guests who'd never been, which was reason enough to head for our go-to impress-the-guests restaurant. Associate Editor Jennifer Chen and I had the pleasure of dining with Christy Morgan, author of the just-released Blissful Bites, and Jamey Scott, founder of Dallas Vegan and the Texas State Veggie Fair. Christy is finishing up her book tour, and the two Texans just had time for a quick tour of our offices after lunch before scooting off to see more of the city, this being Jamey's first visit to SF. We got to hear about the future plans for the TSVF, which sound fantastic, and about Christy's ideas for her next book. It's always great to see friendly faces, especially when they're attached to people doing such great work! Happy weekend, everyone!

Oh, I LOVE GRacias Madre. Feel free to post as often as you want! I only get there once a year, so it's nice to live vicariously through others who live closer!!
