Four Golden Spoons

A surprising find in a colorful setting. For over 100 years, many have known of the Flower Market Café at 6th and Bryant for it’s terrific homestyle breakfasts and hearty lunch fare, but few have discovered the exceptional cuisine now offered for dinner. Proprietors Mark Bechelli and Robert Rossi began offering dinner service just over a year ago, recruiting renowned Executive Chef Salvatore DiGrande to craft an extensive Italian/Continental menu. Chef Salvatore (he prefers to be called by his first name) brings a long family history and over 40 years of San Francisco restaurant experience to the job.


Basque Bacon Wrapped Tournedos With Stilton Garnish

4 Filet Mignon Steaks, 1 ½ to 2 inches thick
Basque Marinade
Uncooked Bacon Slices
Garlic Salt

Place the filets in a large zip lock bag. Pour in approximately ½ cup of Basque Marinade. Close the bag, removing as much air as possible. Marinate for 20-30 minutes. Remove the steaks from the bag and wrap a slice of bacon all the way around the sides of the filets. You may need more than one slice of bacon to wrap the entire filet. Secure with tooth-picks. Dust the filets lightly with garlic salt, just prior to grilling or broiling to taste. Serve with a touch of crumbled Stilton Cheese as garnish.
