I had some of this at my favorite French Bistro, the Cafe Divine, on Washington Square Park in San Francisco.
I was recommended having this appetizer along with gazpacho and some crusty bread on a hot night.
This magical cafe has large scale artwork and jazz music, great french pastries and an amiable atmosphere. Outside, a large park fronts a gorgeous chapel in the heart of San Francisco's North Beach Italian neighborhood. The park is a restful haven, full of running doggies and small babies playing underneath windswept pine and eucalyptus trees.
The weather today is a perfect Mediterranean, moist and breezy, warm with overcast clouds.
