Best Thing We Ate Last Night: Warm Egg Salad Sandwich at Il Cane Rosso

Sometimes, nothing beats the comfort of enjoying a good ole egg salad sandwich. Luckily for us, the kitchen at Il Cane Rosso at the Ferry Building just happens to turn out one of the best egg salad sandwiches in the city. We stopped in for a late evening bite and grabbed one. With a closing time of 9 PM, the Italian-inspired all-day sandwich shop and rotisserie is one of the only food options open in the marketplace after dark. Chef Laurent Kiino starts with fresh Petaluma eggs, roughly chopped and mixed with a healthy dose of caper-and tarragon-studded garlic aioli, then piles the mixture high on top of a slice of Acme’s green onion slab, a focaccia-like bread that’s toasted on the outside, still pliant on the inside and gilded with a layer of anchovy butter on top. A slice of melted aged provolone and tangle of fresh greens provide the open-faced sandwich with additional complexity and just the right amount of crunch. It’s a simple, yet satisfying meal, and even better when you can tote it outside and enjoy it, along with show of the The Bay Lights, from one the cafĂ© tables set up on the promenade (1 Ferry Market Place, 415-391-7599)
