Sheba Piano Lounge
1419 Fillmore, San Francisco, CA 94115
Steve Nelson Trio Jam Session at Sheba Piano Lounge: Don't let the hokey exterior fool you, this place offers a comfortable, even classy setting in the heart of the Fillmore. Perhaps Meatless Mondays will draw you in, as all Ethiopian restaurants seem to have great vegetarian menus. This one costs more, but delivers the goods (they've even made the injera upscale), as does the cocktail list. Half the house cocktails are made with Ethiopian spiced bitters - and even the others are suitably named, such as the Abyssinian Storm (which is essentially a Dark and Stormy, but a really good one) - or you can order Tej, traditional honey wine. Note: This is not for the budget drinker. As for the piano lounge, expect a soloist early in the week, but midweek to weekend nights is when a trio completes the ambiance.
