Farewell Favorites: Flying Saucer
It might be difficult for non-foodies to imagine what was the big deal about the Flying Saucer, but followers of San Francisco's restaurant scene will attest to its good eats. One of the Mission District's most popular restaurants in the 1990s, the menu featured French cuisine with Asian, Mediterranean, and California influences. Dinner by chef Kenneth Aldin might have included caramelized pear salad, Thai high crispy calamari, sage roasted rack of lamb, and persimmon tart. Owner Jason Teplitski closed the place in 2001 citing the usual cause - economic realities of the day.
