Step Inside Hog & Rocks, Now Open in the Mission
- Jay Barmann
The new 19th Street eatery and watering hole, Hog & Rocks, allowed in its first Mission faithful last weekend, and it’s looking like the kind of concept that will be easy for most of that demographic to like: it’s airy, a little loud, the food is cheap, and the drinks are strong and fairly cheap ($6 wine on tap, $7 for cocktails, $9 for the New Orleans-style Hurricane, with a donation to the oil spill cleanup included). Beyond the oyster and ham bar offerings, chef Scott Youkilis’s menu is simple but still inventive and tasty, with a fish pie we wholeheartedly recommend, and a few nods in an East Coast direction like an Italian grinder, and a griddled patty melt.
