Restaurants reviewed: Zare at Fly Trap [now The Fly Trap] (San Francisco), Barrio Fiesta (Milpitas) and Flora (Oakland).
Mac: “And dessert — their caramel pudding is justly famous: a white dish filled with velvety caramel and topped with sea salt crystals.”
Kristine: “The Burger ($16), which was grass-fed and house ground, was juicy and had that charcoal, backyard barbecue splendor.”
Brad: “‘Carter Beats the Devils’ is the Flora version of the margarita. The combination of Tequila, Mescal and the chili made for a smooth drink with a bit of a kick.”
