The renovations of San Francisco's Cliff House have been completed. The grill where you could get execrable hamburgers is gone. The gift shop where you could buy plastic crabs and cheap China-made cookie jars in the shapes of Victorian Painted Ladies is gone.
In their places are:
- A very, very tasteful (and much more expensive) giftshop.
- Restaurants that serve dishes with names like:
- Bouillabaisse "Thai style."
- Pan-Seared Day-Boat Scallop Salad. (How you pan-sear a day boat is something that I will never know.)
Is this progress?
