Opening Alert: Bon Vivants Unleash Trick Dog Tonight

We promise, no more tricks. After much anticipation, San Francisco’s premiere cocktail consultants The Bon Vivants plan to open Trick Dog, their latest cocktail bar and late-night food haunt in the Mission tonight. The new bar, which is named after co-owner Josh Harris’ vintage piggy bank, features beer, wine and a signature handcrafted-cocktail list modeled after the Panetone Color Guide wheel (shown above) that showcases housemade drinking vinegars, syrups and other tinctures. In addition to the elixirs, the kitchen also offers imbibers a full menu of eclectic bar snacks overseen by Zagat 30 Under 30 recipient Chester Watson that’s available nightly from 5 PM-1:30 PM nightly.

According to Watson, highlights on the opening menu include beer nuts cooked in Miller High Life, Heston Blumenthal-inspired twice-cooked fries, fried-to-order cracklings, chicken-fried sweetbreads, as well as larger entrees such as a Scotch egg wrapped in brandade with beet confit and salmon roe and The Trick Dog, an unapologetic homage to San Francisco’s private Olympic Club hot dog/burger, featuring a rectangular burger served on a hot dog bun, along with desserts such as housemade Fernet Mint Chip Ice Cream. 

Destined to be the neighborhood's newest hotspot, Trick Dog is located in a converted warehouse in the same 20th Street-Florida complex that already houses the trendy Salumeria and Central Kitchen and juxtaposes industrial elements such as cast-iron and wireglass with mismatched vintage bric a brac, including the actual Trick Dog Piggy bank located behind the hundred-year-old marble bar that is accented with cast-iron plates and wooden banister posts reclaimed from The Warfield music hall.

Trick Dog: 3010 20th St, open daily from 3 PM- 2 AM, 2010 20th Street, 415-471-2999
