Top chefs turn out tasty sandwiches from a Dogpatch loading..
The movement headlined by Mission Street Food and blown out of the water by Broken Record--namely, top-notch chefs cooking out of ad hoc spaces for plugged-in foodies--gets another player in Kitchenette. Operating out of a loading dock at the back of a warehouse, with a card table for a counter and a few benches set up in the parking lot for seating, this lunch-only spot may be the most improvised restaurant yet, which only adds to the coolness factor for the indie-eater crowd who come here. The food (which comes from alumni of Foreign Cinema, Incanto, Chez Panisse, etc.) changes daily, but expect top-shelf, organic ingredients in street-food-inspired sandwiches like a Fatted Calf pork and fennel sausage with stone-ground mustard and pickled cherry bomb pepper relish on an Acme roll, or a fried fish roll made with local cod, avocado salsa, jicama, cilantro, fresh and dried chiles and lemon aioli. If you need a white tablecloth, or even a table, to enjoy your food, or even a table, but foodies who are also fans of D.I.Y. pluck and SF-style startup mentality will want to add this to their list.
