Trou Normand is great place to eat cured meats and sip crafty cognac cocktails.
Bar Agricole is one of the great utility players in the SF dining scene. Perfect For many occasions.
Del Popolo’s pizza is just as good at their brick and mortar Nob Hill spot as it is from their roving truck.
Trestle is a go-to date night restaurant - simple food, upbeat surroundings, and a streamlined menu will get the job done.
Come to Kokkari Estiatorio in the Financial District to feel like a big shot. Maybe even throw on a suit and tie. It's a Greek temple of lamb.
Down to talk loudly and eat a ton of burrata in the Mission? Get yourself to Beretta for excellent Italian small plates.
A solid North Beach brunch option, which, get this: actually takes reservations. Don’t sleep on Park Tavern.
Nopalito in Nopa always leaves us wanting more. We can’t shake the feeling that it’s aiming higher, and missing.
We’re still on the lookout for a SoMa go-to, near the ballpark. Marlowe is a base hit but not a home run. (Clever, we know.)
Trick Dog is an awesome cocktail bar that is sometimes overwhelmed by the masses. Go on a quiet night and you’ll have an awesome time.
With both food from the 50s and kale, in a pseudo country club environment. Presidio Social Club works out better than we’d have expected.
