Myriad boasts an impressive menu of savory and sweet dishes of various sizes, making it a great place to order a variety of mix-and-match dishes to share among a group. Trish Tracey, the brains behind Myriad, hopes to create a shared, family experience around the table. While this is Trish’s first solo venture, she has held several impressive positions in the Bay Area. She served as Executive Chef at Roti Bistro in San Francisco, created small plates and tapas at Ramblas in the Mission and ran the kitchen at ThirstyBear Brewing Company. It’s clear that Trish’s ‘myriad’ of experiences have combined perfectly to inspire this new venture.
Trish carefully curated Myriad’s globally-inspired menu by taking classic recipes from around the world and adding a personal kick. The deviled eggs come adorned with salsa verde, breakfast radishes and crispy shallot. We recommend pairing these tasty treats with the market salad, which is topped with a toasted cumin-lemon vinaigrette.
One of the most interesting and delicious dishes on the menu is Shakshuka, a Middle Eastern dish containing poached eggs, green onions and tomato. This incredibly healthy and protein-filled dish is a must-have at Myriad. Trish’s recipe kicks this classic dish up a notch by including spices such as cumin, coriander and smoked paprika.
If you have a sweet tooth, you’re in luck. Myriad’s five-spice challah French toast is topped with bacon bourbon maple syrup and pecan mascarpone. Cooked perfectly and topped with pieces of bacon, this dish melts in your mouth. Make sure to pay attention to the specials, as the pastry chef has some tricks up his sleeve. You may just be able to order a homemade ‘pop-tart’ filled with blueberry and cream cheese, topped with sugar of course. And don’t forget donuts! If you can manage to fit more food in your body, you must order the basket of bellwether ricotta zeppole with cardamom sugar. These delicious little treats have a slight citrus taste in the midst of perfectly warm dough.
For visitors hoping to pair their brunch with a light cocktail, Myriad is the place. The menu is stacked with artisan cocktails that pair perfectly with the meals. Try the Ruby Slipper (prosecco, lilet blanc, grapefruit and elderflower), The ’75 (prosecco, punt e mes, white vermouth, lemon and ginger) or the Sandbar (Madeira, orange, grapefruit, pimento bitters and prosecco). The wine list is impressive, which includes both locally sourced and international options, and there is also an impressive variety of both draft and bottled beer.
Beyond the food and drink, the ambiance of Myriad is quirky, fun and cozy. The staff is incredibly warm and inviting, which will make any guest feel at home. The space has a rustic and industrial yet warm atmosphere, making the space perfect for a Saturday or Sunday morning.
