Ruby Wine Merchant is a tiny shop on 18th street that specializes in natural wines. It feels like you’re in your cool friend’s living room (you know the one), except instead of vintage records organized by year, it’s full of wine that the super friendly owners can tell you everything about as you’re drinking a glass. In case they don’t know something about a certain wine, you can come back on Fridays from 5-7pm when they do tastings with some of the winemakers who explain why wine is awesome, along with other mysteries of the universe.

Fool’s Errand is a wine bar in Nopa that’s great for waiting for a reservation on Divis or hanging out with a few friends.
Amelie in Nob Hill is a neighborhood spot with well-priced wine and French and Italian small plates.
A16 turns out some of the best pizza in San Francisco. The small plates are close to perfect, and you can actually get a reservation. There’s no catch. Just go.
