"Put Some Fable on Your Table."
By Brittany Doohan
Every story has a plot — and every restaurant has a story. The plot of this delicious tale is the opening of the new restaurant, Fable (558 Castro between 18th & 19th) in the heart of Gay San Francisco. Main characters chef/co-owner Jon Hearnsberger and interior designer Craige Walters collaborated together to make this buzz-worthy Castro District neighborhood bistro. Their concept portrays a “storybook modern” interior that features an open kitchen and counter, a cozy cabin-style dining room with bright pops of color, and a soon-to-come relaxing semi-enclosed patio area (Summer 2013), according to Tablehopper. So the interior is warm, whimsical and comfortable, but what about the food?
Fable’s got something for everyone: Help yourself to some delicious American cuisine ranging from savory pancetta and quince tarts to pot roast to vegan mushroom Sheppard’s pies and beet-loaf — while enjoying a variety of beverages, including beer or wine. And after all that heart-warming comfort food, you can’t forget the ultimate happy ending: Splurge it up with some bittersweet chocolate mousse, topped caramel whipped cream and chipotle sea salt.
Fable is a place for the people — a comfortable four-and-a-half star Yelp rating pushes the restaurant’s popularity sky high. Avid Yelper’s boast about the service at Fable and Chef Hearnsberger’s craft saying, “I've been following Chef Jon around for a few years now. Anchor Oyster Bar, Woodhouse etc. — I've never had a bad meal from him,” (Gabe T., SF) and “We sat at the bar and it was a nice opportunity to see how the kitchen staff works. They were very clean, careful, and precise. The chef seems like a good person, and the entire staff seems to really respect him,” (Zachary G., SF).
Gather your lovers and friends, and hop down to Fable in your beloved Castro, San Francisco for some cozy eats and sweet treats!
