That new new.
Khai Restaurant – SoMa, High-End Vietnamese
Khai Duong is considered one of the world’s best Asian chefs, and after a 5 year stint in Vietnam, he has returned to SF and opened up an high-end Vietnamese restaurant in SoMa, offering a 10 course tasting menu for $95/person.
Renting out out SoMa’s Bonjour Patisserie space at night, this is quite the Cinderella story.
Mezcalito – Russian Hill
Mezcalito is one of my favorite new restaurants in San Francisco! It’s located right on Polk street in Russian Hill. It is a full restaurant/bar so you can come here to grab dinner at one of their comfy booths or snag a spot at the bar/communal tables for a more low key setting to enjoy a marg and some guac (the essentials).
Chambers Eat + Drink – Tenderloin
This spot is not a new addition to the SF food scene (they opened back in 2011), but they have debuted 2 new specials that are worth highlighting!
For those who aren’t familiar with Chambers – it is a swanky/trendy bar/restaurant located in the Tenderloin, even if you haven’t been here, there is a 99% chance that you have seen an instagram of their iconic “Be Amazing” lights (100% chance if you are a female in her 20s who loves yoga and goldendoodles).
I LOVE pizza. Nothing beats that first bite into a freshly baked slice, with just the right amount of Parmesan on top, but not every pizza is created equal. So here is a guide to the best pizza for every occasion. Enjoy 🙂
San Francisco is a haven for foodies. So many amazing restaurants within a few miles of each other #blessed. All these places are seriously amazing for one reason or another, but the one thing they do have in common is difficulty in getting a reservation. So read up, go online, and make your coveted reservations for 30 days out on a Tuesday at 9 pm….good food is worth it right?? But seriously if anyone can get a reservation to State Bird, I’m a great addition to the dinner table and my calendar is open.
Brentwood is the perfect area for young adults who are starting the whole family/real life chapter. You know those people who moved from Santa Monica, and used that 2 mile move to draw a line in the proverbial sand saying “I’m an actual adult now” not the post-college “I’m an adult” stage where you still call your parents for insurance/cooking questions and you keep talking about how you can’t believe you’re an adult. While I am in the latter group, I still think Brentwood is awesome. Awesome in all aspects minus parking tickets – anyone who has driven in Brentwood knows what I mean. Those parking enforcement people take pride in writing you a ticket the minute your time runs out. Regardless for those of us in the first “I’m an adult” stage, there are still so many reasons to venture into Brentwood.
Hayes Valley is a hidden gem of neighborhood, it is like the Marina matured a little bit past the fratty college stage, and blossomed into an underrated adult-ish haven where you don’t have to walk past the bar you stumbled out of at 3 am the night before (Brixton…guilty). Hayes really does have it all- chicken cooked to perfection at Zuni Cafe, sashimi on point at Domo, shopping at Rand & Statler and Azalea, steins of beer at Biergarten, the perfect setting for a glass of wine at Fig & thistle, and to top it off multiple options for post-dinner ice cream – Smitten and Loving Cup I am referring to you…what else does one need in life? I obviously recommend every place below but I have to reiterate everyone should go to Domo. Just go.
