Delarosa is one of our favorite options for after-work drinks and apps near FiDi. The location on Yerba Buena feels like a little oasis away from the chaos of Market, and there are a bunch of outdoor tables for a lunch that’s much better than the desk variety. As a rule we tend to stick with the pastas and small plates (get the burrata and the crab arancini) over the pizza, which is just ok. There’s a Marina location that’s more about brunch, girl’s night out, and people/dog-watching.
