Greens Celebrates Golden Gate Bridge's 75th Anniversary Via Cookie

Martin Allred
Greens' Golden Gate Bridge cookies.
Greens executive chef/owner Annie Somerville collaborated with her pastry chef Sandi Sumaylo to create an official commemorative cookie commissioned by Fort Mason Center for the Golden Gate Bridge's 75th anniversary.

Burning bridges is always a bad idea, but eating them is good. Cook E. Monster devoured almost two entire bridges that they built out of Madagascar vanilla-enhanced butter shortbread and orange Royal icing -- and we could have happily devoured more. Royal iced cookies can be heavy handed, but the refined touch here is clear and appreciated in both the visual detail and the taste.

This isn't shortbread that's going to break a tooth and crumble all over your clothes. It's a light bite and you'll actually get to enjoy it all.

The cookie ($3.75) is available now through May 27 at Greens to Go, the restaurant's takeout counter up front. It will be featured at Greens that night at the restaurant's special dinner honoring the anniversary.
