I came with my boyfriend for an anniversary dinner and I'm so glad we chose Straw. We had a reservation for Sunday night but didn't really need one (though it might be busier when there isn't pouring rain out). We shared sweet potato tots for an appetizer (I love their BBQ dipping sauce) and then he got The Ringmaster and I got the Fried Chicken n Waffle Monte Cristo and we split both. Oh my God. So sweet, so meaty, so everything. Everything was amazing, but I'd choose The Ringmaster over the Monte Cristo next time - there was just so much waffle I was stuffed before I was halfway done with it.
My favorite thing, though, was the drinks - I got the Big Dipper (vodka-infused sake, lemonade, strawberry and a Fun Dip rim, YUM) and my boyfriend got the Cotton Candy Cocktail, which is a MUST. They bring you a glass overflowing with blue cotton candy and then pour a sake-champagne mix over it so the cotton candy melts down right in front of you, and the final product is like a delicious bright memory of youth... plus booze.
Service was also friendly and great, and I love that they bring you a little book and crayon at the end of your meal. This is definitely a place I'll re-visit, if only to prove to people that SF isn't all fancy healthy salad restaurants - we do the opposite quite well too :)
