A Garlic Restaurant

— 1991 —

San Francisco's first restaurant to celebrate the
euphoria of garlic.

Ancient Roman soldiers dubbed the pungent herb garlic "the stinking rose". They believed garlic made them extremely strong and extra virile and rubbed their bodies with garlic oil before going into battle.

The Stinking Rose: A Garlic Restaurant is known for seasoning its garlic with food.

North Beach, Little Italy of the West.
