If you’re searching for an excuse to leave the house this week, you don’t have to look too far. Spring has arrived, restaurants and bars across the city continue to reopen, and there have never been more exciting things to eat and drink in SF. So take a break from rewatching old seasons of Survivor and check out these six pop-ups, new openings, and special events.

La Cocina Municipal Marketplace

The women-led food hall from kitchen incubator La Cocina opened on Monday, April 5th, and currently features food stalls helmed by six incredible female chefs (get to know each chef here). Whether you’re in the mood for spicy peanut stew from Teranga or a chilaquiles meal kit from Mi Morena, you can stop by this week and check out the long-awaited marketplace. They’re currently open weekdays from 11am-2:30pm.


Anchor Public Taps

Anchor Brewing recently reopened their massive outdoor taproom in Potrero Hill - so if you’re looking for a place to grab a beer with your roommates, a date, or a third-tier friend you haven’t seen in 13 months, this is a good option. They’re reservations-only right now, so make yours here.

If you’re looking for somewhere to properly celebrate your birthday from December of last year, or just want to treat yourself to a fantastic omakase, make a reservation at Ju-Ni’s brand new outdoor omakase bar, open for dinner service Wednesday to Sunday. It’s $138 per person, and reservations are pre-paid on Tock. They just released seats for the month of April (keep an eye on their Instagram for updates) - and spots go quick, so be sure to snag one soon.


Understory

Understory is a new worker-led restaurant and bar from Oakland Bloom, a volunteer-led nonprofit that supports immigrant, refugee, and women of color chefs looking to start their own food businesses. Every Sunday, they feature a different pop-up by Oakland Bloom chefs, and they also have a rotating menu from Thursday to Sunday (this week’s is Moroccan-inspired), all for takeout only. While you’re at the Old Oakland spot, grab one of their cocktails, like a pandan cold brew or hibiscus margarita, and add boba to any of them.


Frolic & Detour Bakery

One foolproof way to make your week better: get a box of cookies. Enter Frolic & Detour Bakery, a cookie-focused pop-up that does monthly events and weekly pick ups at Fig & Thistle Market or Saint Frank Coffee. This week, order a box with a dozen cookies - the flavors range from masala chai molasses and birthday cake to chocolate espresso passionfruit. Pre-order here by 4pm for next-day pick up.


SF Restaurant Week

SF Restaurant Week starts this Friday and runs through April 18th - so if you’re looking for ways to support restaurants and enjoy some great deals, keep on reading. Some of our favorite spots, like Flour + Water, Lily, and Burma Superstar, will have special takeout and dine-in lunch and dinner menus for $15-$65. Check out the list of participating restaurants here.
