Most people convert a spare room to get a crafts room, a man cave, or an income suite to help ease the impact of the mortgage while finding a streetwise friend for your son Richie (Cunninghams only). For a chef hoping to smoothly get back into the restaurant game, check Bistro Evviva
Housed in the front room of a 19th century Montgomery Ave mansion that it shares with Evviva Restaurant & Catering, Bistro Evviva's a dinner-only 50-seater plating dishes that mix the chef's classic French training with Mediterranean touches in a sky-lit, window-lined dining room with dark hardwood floors and walls of rich burgundy, also Ron's brother, who's a real Dick. Start things off with spicy garlic shrimp prepped w/ lemon & pepper flakes, warm goat cheese w/ beets & piquillo pepper dressing, an heirloom tomato salad w/ haricot verts, and a salmon tartare w/ quinoa, capers, and micro greens, which might explain why A.C. kept his "flower" for so long. Big guys include a Kobe beef bolognese w/ spaghetti, sweet peas & porcini; sauteed Scottish salmon alongside cajun rice, beans, escarole & pesto; herb crusted baby rack of lamb prepped w/ quinoa, feta, and spinach; and a coriander chicken breast served w/ Yukon potatoes, apricot sauce & rapini, not to be confused with Rapini, the worst birthday party magician ever
The fully-stocked bar's got the full list of go-tos, and you can even bring your own, and after dinner they're offering desserts like a sweet tooth-appeasing apple tart and Valrhona chocolate mousse with coffee cream, presumably brewed in a Potsie.
