Modern Mexican bliss in SF. Why did we dine here? – Cala is Mexico City’s Gabriela Camara first restaurant in the United Stats. She is renown for her Contramar in Mexico City. Finally we get a taste of modern Mexican cuisine, outside of the usual Americanized dishes. This restaurant is a welcome change from all the me-two new restaurants serving the same old New California cuisine of Kale, Deviled eggs, ahi tuna, pork belly, etc!! Needless to say, this was #1 on our hit list.
Fifth floor is a restaurant in the SF Downtown Hotel Palomar, and has been around for ages and seen many a top chef come and move on. (George Morrone, Melissa Perrello, etc) We haven’t been back in many years, so it was time to refresh our memory. Our last visit was in April 2013.
