The latest from the restaurant group behind Absinthe Brasserie and Arlequin Wine Merchant is the fast-casual spot Arbor in Hayes Valley. This all-day burger and sandwich joint is also pumping out healthy-ish salad bowls topped with things like grilled garlic butter shrimp, falafels, and more. Even though this place is a quick-eats spot that’ll likely make your already Very Efficient Day even more efficient, the food ranges from pretty good to just OK, including tomato-onion-jam-filled smashburgers, buttermilk fried chicken sandwiches, excellent curly fries, mac and cheese, and an underwhelmingly dry eggplant gratin. Because we’re in a neighborhood with high-end luggage and performance apparel stores, this place looks like a simple yet curated Pinterest board, filled with cane walls, light wood, and peach-y paint. If you have some time to spare, head to the garden patio, shared with their sister bottle shop next door, for wine and spritzes.
