Contemporary French / American | Marina / Cow Hollow / Presidio, San Francisco

Wow. So, this place was pretty new, but literally the second we stepped inside, a friendly, courteous staff was there to welcome us and seat us very quickly. We were on the early side of the night, so it was pretty empty, but our server was super knowledgeable about the menu, was super friendly, and made us feel like we definitely made the right choice, for an anniversary dinner. Food? AMAZING. Go here! More

Discover San Francisco

Farm-to-table is everywhere now, but it was here first. Just north of San Francisco, the values-forward counties of Marin and Sonoma offer an abundance of sustainably sourced produce. Of course, there’s more to eat in the Bay than leafy greens alone—don’t miss the mainstays like Cioppino (a seafood stew best eaten with thick-cut garlic bread), Mission-style burritos, local oysters and Neapolitan pizza where pizzerias around town war for the ultimate version. The city has long been home to distinct international flavors, so for authentic dim sum, Chinatown tops the charts. The Mission is ablaze with longstanding taquerias, steakhouses and a new wave of artisanal bakeries and coffee houses. And the Fisherman’s Wharf, while touristy, is the spot for Bay caught seafood. From there, we recommend walking to Crissy Field for Golden Gate Bridge gazing and sparkling sunshine.
