Deviled eggs at Causwell’s
| Christina C./Yelp

From 1950s cocktail-party staple to trendy appetizer du jour, deviled eggs done right have made quite a comeback. And why shouldn't they? Creamy filling, a finger-friendly presentation and plenty of room for creative toppings have helped the inexpensive and popular dish make its way to all sorts of menus around town.

“A deviled egg is almost like a really tiny sandwich,” explains Big Night group executive chef Jennifer Puccio (Marlowe, Leo’s Park Tavern, the Cavalier). “If you don’t build it perfectly with all the layers, the experience that you get could either be really exceptional or it’s just not going to be very enjoyable at all.”

Here, those really exceptional ones (ordered geographically, not ranked.).

Fog City

Revamped SF diner Fog City sports deviled eggs with more crunch than most: The secret is a topping of crisp quinoa and a crispy sliver of bacon.

Park Tavern

Copy Link

Park Tavern's smoked deviled eggs come correct with bacon, pickled jalapeño and chives. “Personally I think [for] the perfect deviled egg, the filling needs to be creamy, but it needs to have great acid,” says executive chef Jennifer Puccio. “It also needs to have texture. And then the same thing with the topping needs to pop.”

Causwells

Sure, everyone knows that Causwells is a go-to for burgers. But the secret to a balanced meal at this Chestnut Street favorite is a healthy dose of creamy deviled eggs to start.

La Folie Lounge

La Folie's lounge is a good spot for bar bites like truffle deviled eggs with vanilla roe, which pair nicely with their spicy Mediterranean olives and pickled vegetables.

The Brixton

The Brixton's deviled eggs are topped with a sweet scoop of crab, plus a filling that's got celery, shallots, Dijon mustard and cayenne.

Deviled eggs at swanky FiDi classic BIX go one step further with a truffle oil topping along with crunchy radish and chives.

Sauce: Belden Place

Hayes Valley’s Sauce is no more, but its classic menu items like deviled eggs with a studding of bacon live on at its Belden Place offshoot, which remains open.

Hopwater Distribution

A bar with 31 of California's finest craft beers on tap had better offer some salty, vinegary bar bites, and Nob Hill's Hopwater Distribution has that covered with their deviled eggs. Get them with either bacon jam or cured rock cod before the next round.

Prospect

Jalapeño and pickled Serrano ham top the devils at this SOMA favorite for after-work dinner and cocktails.

Octavia

Copy Link

This "deviled" egg from Octavia's Melissa Perello is in quotes for a reason: It's not what you might expect. Coated with fresno chile relish and spices, it's parboiled rather than hardboiled and served whole for a runny yolk when you cut into it with a fork.

Jasper's Corner Tap & Kitchen

Jasper's serves up a trio of deviled eggs, one with green goddess, one pickled, and one topped with salmon and asparagus.

Biergarten

Copy Link

Biergarten's pickled eggs boast a head-turning hue and a vinegary taste that goes well with both the creamy filling and accompanying stein of beer.

Deviled eggs with pork rinds for a crunch and Fresno chili for a bite are a must at Curio, a Valencia Street bar and restaurant inside concert venue the Chapel.

The Beehive

Copy Link

‘60s-inspired Valencia Street bar the Beehive (a replacement for Range from some of the same folks) takes its deviled eggs very seriously: They come in a trio with one pickled and one fried.

Magnolia Dogpatch

Copy Link

The reimagined Magnolia Dogpatch took its emphasis off barbecue and went all-in on light pub fare to go with fresh beer: The deviled eggs, with garlic chili oil and crispy bacon, are a great example of the new menu at work.

Son's Addition

Copy Link

Bacon kimchi deviled eggs with green onions and black sesame seeds are a delicate but decadent start to dinner at Son’s Addition, a casual fine dining charmer on 24th Street. Chef Nick Cobarruvias nails the balance between crunchy bacon, creamy filling, and tangy kimchi. Diabolical.

Blue Plate

Very smoky smoked trout deviled eggs are a classic at Blue Plate, a Mission/Bernal comfort food staple. They’re topped with castelvetrano olives, fried garlic, lemon, and pretty edible flowers.
