What I Ate: Montesacro Pinseria-Enoteca

Montesacro - Roman Pinseria-Enoteca - Mid Market

Montesacro, is a killer spot in San Francisco’s mid-market area and I just had a chance to preview their menu.

From the Pinsa to the Panzanella salad Montesacro is a gem and a MUST anytime you are around the Twitter building or feeling lazy and just want to order it on Caviar.

Now, let’s talk Pinsa!

Pinsa is a flatbread that was once prepared by peasants living outside the imperial walls during the Roman empire. Montesacro is the first “Pinseria” in the United States.

It presents a modern take on Pinsa that is made with a blend of rice, soy and wheat flour imported directly from Rome, All GMO-free. It is low-fat, low-calorie and easy to digest.

AMAZING

The first Pinsa we dug into (above) featured an egg and I am a firm believer that all Pinsa’s should feature an egg!
