• Complimentary patacones when you dine at the restaurant

Just opened in February of this year, Mamo, in the Marina, is the only restaurant in the Bay Area that features Californian cuisine with a Colombian and Venezuelan flair. That might mean starting with something like burrata…with avocado. Or perhaps yucca fries…with truffle. Then move on to sous-vide pork…with arepas. Or bavette steak…with chimichurri. Executive Chef Freddie Blanco, who began his career as a dishwasher at the age of 16, most recently served as sous chef at Café Boho. At Mamo, he draws so artfully on his wide-ranging knowledge of the cuisines of Italy, Germany, Austria, Japan, and the Mediterranean that The Infatuation has named Mamo to its list of “The Best New Restaurants in San Francisco.”
