The Grubstake: Restaurant Info 23 July,2015Check, Please! Bay Area

  • Kevin Cooke

    I love this place! The fact that they’re open so late is awesome.

  • Thomas A. Goulart

    I would greatly appreciate your recipe for caldo verde. I am also interested in where I may locate the chifnade machine you used for the kale. Of course I usually cut it with a knife. I use chourico at home, but will try the linquicia. Thank you for the episode on food network tv. I first thought you may be from New England as my hometown of Bristol, RI was about 50% Portuguese growing up.

    Thank you for your assistance.

    Love, luv, Grubstake – best place to go after the city shuts down and you have a belly full of alcohol. Always great service and reasonably priced.
