Dunsmoor - Glassell Park

Tidy graffiti work! Gotta applaud the clean handstyle.


Turning a space that had been vacant for decades into a restaurant causes homelessness, right.

The point of the gentrification spear is bohemians, who make the neighborhood attractive to yuppies, who create a market for upscale businesses such as this one.

I’m glad someone else caught this.


Warrior: Winner winner! This is the best restaurant north of the 5 (except Morihiro). They are doing everything right. All the dishes we tried are well conceived and well executed. Ingredients are excellent, especially the heirloom tomatoes, the sweet bay scallops, and the albacore. Interesting wine list focused on lesser known (and/or less expensive) regions. Also love their apple cider by the glass.

Peony: I really enjoyed the meal tonight. The restaurant exceeded my expectations because we haven’t had much luck visiting new restaurants this year. We got to sit in the wine bar while waiting for our seat. It was a good experience. I can’t quite identify the style of the food, but all the dishes taste interesting and original, and the flavor and texture combinations work really well. I think the chef has a good palate.

Was anyone banging on the windows screaming about gentrification while you ate?

Nope, no issues.

Baby albacore ?

I’d say Brian Dunsmoor’s style is Southern influenced, cooked over wood coals, with seasonal ingredients. Loved his food when he was at Hatchet Hall, and I’m glad he’s got his own place now!
