Fondue Happy Hour at Fondue Cowboy
Join Kym Pesola for Fondue Happy Hour at Fondue Cowboy! Reserve your seat on Nommery! RSVP here: https://nom.ms/d660OOwYjR While doing a search for fondue restaurants in San Francisco (I was looking for the one on Van Ness only to find it is now closed), I ran upon Fondue Cowboy - a Western theme fondue restaurant and. Always being up for theme restaurant and bars, I have to see what this place is about. Enter Nommery! There is not much more at Fondue Cowboy than what's in the title, a few salads, beer and wine, so I thought it might make a good happy hour destination. About Kym For a living I work for a recently acquired energy startup. For fun, I study piano at the Conservatory. Love cooking in my mini kitchen and binge watching the latest TV shows. But don't get me wrong, health and fitness are just as important to me. There is nothing I love more though, than planning my next vacation and traveling to obscure places. I'm outgoing and can pretty much start a conversation with anybody. Lived all over: OR>WA>VA>NC>DC>CA About Fondue Cowboy At Fondue Cowboy (c. 2010) in SoMa, first-time restaurant owner Dave Mur throws a curveball at the traditional fondue restaurant setup: There's nary a chalet or snow-covered Alp in site. Instead, you'll find a uniquely San Francisco take on the usual melted delights, all with a decidedly Western twist. The vibe: Inviting tones of brown and black, and wood paneling, along with a few strategically placed items of cowboy paraphernalia (check out the handsome saddle tucked away in a corner near the kitchen) sleekly play up the restaurant's spaghetti Western motif while managing to avoid being kitschy. The crowd: A convivial meet-up spot where you'll find professionals having a post-work drink and nosh, couples enjoying a lingering date night and friends looking to get their fondue on before gearing up for a night out on the town. Best seat: The padded banquette seats, beneath the watchful eye of a large portrait of Clint Eastwood, offer a great view of the entire space. Killer app: Fondues are designed to serve two. On the savory side ($24 each) are options like the Traditional - made with Gruyere, Emmenthaler and a hint of nutmeg. The less-conventional Rawhide features Dolce Gorgonzola, Emmenthaler and bacon. Dippables include bread, roasted potatoes, cornichons, apples, grapes, broccoli and olives. Signature drink: Despite the lack of a hard liquor license, the restaurant offers a solid selection of wine-based cocktails ($8 each), including the sake-spiked Cucumber Cooler and the Pomegranate Margarita, which uses agave wine instead of tequila. Also on tap: Beer ($6-$12). As for wine, two whites and three reds are available on tap and can be ordered by the glass ($8-$9), half-liter ($20-$23) and liter ($39-$44). Wines by the bottle are also available. Bonus: The cowboy theme continues with classic Westerns playing on the flat-screen TV above the bar. 20% gratuity on tables of 4 or more. 4 credit cards max at a table.
