Bacon Time at Lafitte in San Francisco

Bacon Flight at Lafitte

Sure, you've indulged at restaurants in wine flights, beer flights, and even dessert flights. But when's the last time you've succumbed to a porky-licious bacon flight?

You can at Lafitte at Pier 5, just blocks from the Hilton in San Francisco's Financial District.

As part of its "Cocktail Hour'' that began in December (and which actually stretches for three and a half hours, from 3 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.), the edgy, waterfront restaurant named for a pirate is offering specialty cocktails and beers, as well as charcuterie and an amazing bacon flight ($10).

The latter creation from Chef Russell Jackson is a plateful of four different bacons: Zoey's apple smoked, Hobbs' thick cut, Golden Gate Meat artisanal, and the Fatted Calf's smoked version.

Pull up a stool and get ready for an oinking good time.
