One of the perks of solo dining is walking right into a Michelin starred restaurant without a reservation! I had an incredible experience at @statebirdprovisions tonight in San Francisco including more dishes than I can count (check out my Stories). This squash mochi with shaved black truffle, Brussels sprouts and Maitake mushrooms and fried sourdough with burrata were definitely two highlights! Have you been before? It’s a must-try in SF! || #theghostguest
