Delancey Street Restaurant, SF, CA
Good view, atmosphere, and a great CAUSE!
Delancey Street Restaurant, on The Embarcadero in SF, is a place every local should visit at least once. It is a very nice restaurant with a Bay view, excellent atmosphere, and pleasant service. The food is good and prices are surprisingly low. What we really like most, however, is the CAUSE — helping ex-convicts become honorable citizens through practical, self-supporting, self-help.
On our most recent trip we ate a nice brunch on the restaurant’s outdoor patio. The highlight was an orange-flavored creme brulee, possibly the best we have ever tasted.
The restaurant also has three private dining rooms if you happen to be looking for a nice, well-priced venue with decent access & parking for a private event.
Both Delancey Street Restaurant and Crossroads Cafe around the corner are part of a training school run by the Delancey Street Foundation — the nation’s biggest, best, self-supporting, self-help organization for assisting ex-convicts and drug abusers. Here people with no place to go are given the attitudes and vocational training needed to make for themselves a decent life.
Delancey Street Foundation is an impressive philanthropy well worth supporting, at the very least by enjoying their services. Do check out Delancey Street Restaurant for a pleasing and surprisingly inexpensive dining experience!
