Back to Back
This natural wine bar in Nob Hill is a date night specialist. Natural wine and music playing on vinyl set the mood. Snug seating arrangements where you can “accidentally” brush knees under the table are plenty. And the wood-fired pizzas and small plates like wagyu tartare and braised short ribs are what you want to share when you disclose to your date that you hide a comprehensive Lego collection in the back of your closet. Focus your attention on the pizzas. They’re about the size of a frisbee, with charred crusts that are miraculously puffy. We love the “That’s Hot, Honey” covered in pepperoni—it’s a nice segue into going down a Paris Hilton rabbit hole for the rest of the night.
