On the corner of Valencia and 26th (street, not avenue), there is a pretty classy little restaurant called the “South End Grill ‘n’ Bar.” I think the name is a reference to Boston because there’s a clover on the bar across the street, or maybe because it’s south of Market street?
In any case, this place didn’t look too busy last night. I was tempted to go in just so I could chow down on a $20 steak while drinking a $1.75 beer. Worth it? Might have been. Pair that beer with their $3 quesadillas, and you really have something!
