Last week we spoke to chef-partner Tony Ferrari about the opening of Hillside Supper Club (300 Precita Avenue) in Bernal Heights, and tonight is the big debut. It's a cozy spot with a simple and modern look, and they had a little neighborhood gathering last night so we snapped a few photos. And below is the opening menu, from Ferrari and co-chef Jonathan Sutton.
Note that there are fourteen wines by the glass and two beers on tap (including the excellent Honey Saison from Almanac Beer Co.), as well as seven other beers by the bottle.
