Hey, you. Yeah, you. Step away from the Easy Mac.
We’ve found a fresh, healthy alternative to that rectangular box: Square Meals and Batter Bakery, opening today on Polk.
Chef/owner Alison Mountford’s meal delivery service now has a home, complete with reclaimed wood tables, an ever-changing chalkboard menu, and bright red lamps above the open kitchen.
Everyday boxed and sit-down options change weekly and with the market (think ginger soy skirt steak or cranberry-and-pine-nut-topped grouper), while breakfast (ginger cranberry scones) and dessert (caramel apple tart, holiday shortbread) from fellow tenant Batter Bakery fill in the food pyramid.
No need to get desperate.
Square Meals and Batter Bakery, 2127 Polk Street, between Broadway and Vallejo Streets (415-674-1069 or squaremealssf.com).
