Original Joe’s

My buddy, Paul, decided at the last minute to head out to San Francisco for New Year’s.  I hustled on back from Timber Cove to spend the day with him.  Paul’s a life-long Chicagoan and White Sox fan but recently moved to Nashville, so Original Joe’s sounded to me like..

Takuya

Always a foodie for me. I love reading everything I can get my hands on about the latest trends, new restaurants, and different and unique ways to cook. So, the San Francisco Chronicle’s Inside Scoop announced a soft opening of Takuya, a Japanese hot dog place on Irving between 8th..

Central Kitchen and Trick Dog

Central Kitchen and Trick Dog I walk by Central Kitchen and Trick Dog on the way to the Giants day games.  Central Kitchen is a beautiful space, and I’ve been dying to go.  I went to Trick Dog when it first opened, and with a little time before our reservation,..
