We were recommended to go here by our Airbnb host and we're so glad we did. The food is fantastic, all very fresh, innovative and so tasty. It is a bit privy at $58 per person but you get 4 generous courses for that. They're...More

We stopped in for a pre-dinner appetizer (wish I could have stayed for dinner). The house Chardonnay was great, bread and cheese spread and chopped salad to share we were in heaven.

Visited because I had a ham and cheese croissant craving. Glad I did. While the weekend line was long, it did move and the people watching was fun. The food was wonderful, buttery, flakey, moist yum.

This restaurant is quite possibly my favorite in SF (and perhaps the world). All the inventive ingredients (black garlic, various stocks, farmers cheese, all seasonings) are hand-prepared (see their cookbook) and combined in surprising ways that are more than mere fusion. Something like Hungarian meets...More

This is a wonderfully cozy little place that made me feel really at home sitting at the bar. I'm new to the city but immediately made great friends with the staff and the others seated at the bar. I would highly recommend their plum soup.

Mission District
From burritos to bicyclists, the Mission is the
foundation for all things hip in the city. Cultural
attractions, an independent arts community, sumptuous
street murals and a high density of bars and cafes
make this neighbourhood a magnet for young people.
While terrific inexpensive food is abundant, its
top-of-the-line restaurants now compete with the
city’s best for fashionable diners. Indulge as the
