Three Tasting Menus That Won't Break the Bank

Carolyn Alburger | June 18, 2013 | Story Restaurants

Southpaw’s $35 four-course Southern tasting menu is served at the kitchen counter. Think smoked goat with salsa verde, pineapple relish, and fry bread (pictured) and a strawberry-cayenne sundae with salted caramel for dessert. 2170 Mission St. (near Sycamore St.), 415-934-9300

At Roxy’s CafĂ©, chef Manny Torres Giminez serves stunning plates like arugula vichyssoise and yucca gnocchi. Twenty-five dollars buys four courses, which change nightly based on the markets. 2847 Mission St. (near 24th St.), 415-375-1185

For just $24, Berkeley Indian mainstay Ajanta will fill your table with four courses of vegetarian Indian deliciousness, including one of the fluffiest samosas in the Bay Area. 1888 Solano Ave. (at The Alameda), 510-526-4373
