Very good ambiance and service. Good food with vegetarian options. We really wanted to enjoy the Jazz music but were seated away from the area and couldn't hear it. If you plan to enjoy the music, ask to be seated accordingly. More

Its a small space with a huge flavor profile. Best pork chop I have ever had, period. All of the food that we tried, and we tried a good portion of the menu, was fantastic. I don't know how they do that corn but it was amazing.. and the paella was perfect. We'll be back. More

Japanese | Mission, San Francisco

Easily one of the best meals of my life. There are only 13 seats, all at the counter, so everyone has a front row seat to watch the chef (who is an absolute master of his craft) assemble each piece. Although most dishes are served as a single composed bite, the quantity was more than sufficient, with a huge variety of flavors and textures. We had several opening courses, followed by 14 unique maki, then 2 more savory courses, then a simple and refreshing dessert of yuzu sorbet and hojicha tea. The fish was fresh and flawless (selected by the chef each day - word is he will do his best to accommodate requests if you call ahead). The rice was perfect, one plain and one seasoned in a way I’ve never encountered anywhere else. The chef was quiet but warm, friendly to those who wanted to chat and ask questions and respectful of those who preferred to savor their bites in silence. The omekase (the only option) is expensive at 180/person, but worth the splurge if you’re celebrating a special occasion or just want to have a really memorable dinner. 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.
