400 Haight Street, San Francisco, CA
Status: Now Open
Former Broken Record/Firefly chefs James Moisey and Shane LaValley opened RickyBobby for dinner service on Wednesday night. There's no sign outside, but you can look for this red painted facade with huge windows. The full menu just went live on their website, though Moisey wants you to know that things are bound to switch up a little each night. The lobster mac n' cheese and burger with bacon ground into it have been the crowd favorites so far.
Down the line, Moisey and LaValley hope to trick out the menu here with a touch more "technique and effort" than they were able to at Broken Record. Think dinner-esque plates like a rib-eye with Manchego scalloped potatoes. A big part of this is keeping prices affordable enough that you can have dinner here on a random week night.
And about the name, Moisey says he and LaValley are definitely fans of Talladega Nights, but they chose the moniker more as "a knickname" for the restaurant out of a desire to avoid anything pretentious-sounding. Hours are 5:30 to 11 p.m. daily. Beer and wine are coming soon.
