Picks:

Wexlers San Francisco Watermelon Cocktail

Waterlime Cocktail ($9) with watermelon, lime, gin was a pretty balanced drink with restrained sweetness.

Wexlers San Francisco BBQ Scotch Eggs

BBQ Scotch Eggs ($11) Burnt Ends, House Made Hot Sauce, Sweet Tea Gastrique was a nice looking egg covered in ribs and deep fried. How can anything deep fried not be good? The egg was lacking in flavor and needed the salsa.

Wexlers San Francisco Slow Roasted Smoked Sturgeon

Slow Roasted Smoked Sturgeon ($21) Parsnip mash, Smoked lobster, bacon, and cornbread cakes, corn vinagrette was recommended by the server. Pretty good sized piece of moist fish that had a hint of smoke. The cornbread cake was a nice touch, especially with its bacon bits.

OK:
None

Pans:

Wexlers San Francisco Smoked Short Ribs

Smoked Short Rib ($16) Macomber Turnips, Mashed Potatoes, BBQ au Jus was smoky and very dry. The BBQ sauce was too subtle and too Californiaesque. This needs to be more rare and spiked with a good BBQ sauce.

Wexler’s had friendly service with no issues. Prices are what you would expect for a Financial district restaurant. The Southern BBQ theme needs more emphasis on dishes. This isn’t really a traditional BBQ joint. Cocktails and appetizers might be a good start if you want to sample this place. Try Pican in Oakland for a stylish atmosphere and very good Southern Food. Glasses of wine from $7, Bottles from $28.
