The popovers here are to die for as is the "healthy" friend chicken (and I'm from the South). The bibb lettuce salad also excellent. Service was very good.

Dined here with my parents and we all had a great experience. The hostess and wait staff were excellent- friendly, accommodating and polished. The food takes a creative twist with classic fare - diners start the meal with popovers. The fried chicken was delicious and...More

Financial District
The Financial District lies just east of Chinatown but
can seem a world apart given it’s San Francisco’s
version of Wall Street. The rush of business people
make up a hectic weekday and add to a frenetic pace of
life, but visitors who spend a few hours walking the
narrow streets will be rewarded with fine examples of
historic and contemporary architecture, including the
iconic Transamerica Pyramid. After business hours,
