Satellite Republic, San Francisco & Napa
Specialty: Flatbread from the republic of Georgia, served out of a 1970s moped equipped with a tandoor oven, which is fueled partly
by grapevine clippings (“I live in Napa!” owner Boris Portnoy explains).
Catch the spectacle: Portnoy slaps his dough onto the walls of the 600° tandoor, the bread puffing up in seconds. “I love the showmanship of having an open kitchen,” says Portnoy, a former pastry chef who grew up in Moscow. satellite-republic.com
