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,..

Dottie’s True Blue Cafe

Dottie’s True Blue Cafe is one of the hottest breakfast spots in the city.  There are lines there all day long.  People were worried that when Dottie’s True Blue moved from the Tenderloin to a block from Mission and 6th, another dangerous area, that they wouldn’t survive.  Absolutely not so...

Zeke’s

You know I love dive bars.  Zeke’s is where we almost always go prior to the Giants games at home.  The food and booze is inexpensive, the ambiance of a perfect dive bar with sports broadcasts blaring from all over the venue, and the service is outstanding.  Once the fine..

Local Kitchen and Wine Merchant

I thought I had purchased a Groupon for Local’s Corner. I really like that place. We went there for brunch only to learn that my Groupon was for Local Kitchen and Wine Merchant!! Fortunately for us, there was a Sunday Giants game, so we decided to head to Local Kitchen..

Trou Normand

Trou Normand opened only months ago, and they’ve been at the top of my ‘to-eat’ list even before their opening, mainly because Trou Normand is the new sister of one of my favorite San Francisco restaurants, Bar Agricole.  The second reason is to see what the design looked like since Bar..

Mikado Sushi

After a long day at Sunset Celebration Weekend, we decided to order in, and light fare was what was needed after that amazing burger.  We’ve ordered from Mikado Sushi many times and have always been impressed with the freshness of the food AND the taste, so that’s the call we..

Double Play

I LOVE dive bars, and Double Play is just the place.  Like its competitor, Il Pirata, down the street, there’s something for everyone here.  Lots of  TVs showing off the latest games.  There’s a full bar with everything for everybody.  Beers are on tap and in the bottles.  BTW, don’t..
SOMA Street Food Park

SOMA Street Food Park

It could be just one of those days when you and your partner can’t agree on what to eat??  SOMA Street Food Park has pretty much anything you could dream up.  Your partner wants pizza and you want falafel??  No problem.  Burgers and ice cream?  No problem.  Roasted chicken?  No..

Una Pizza Napoletana

My friend, Tracey, told me about Una Pizza Napoletana when Anthony Mangieri mysteriously moved his wildly famous pizzeria from Manhattan to San Francisco. From what I read about the man, my first impression was arrogance. He works 5 days a week – no problem – but his website says that..

Mission Rock Resort

When it comes to storied histories of San Francisco restaurants, Mission Rock Resort has an amusing one.  Set in a not-so-cool down on the wharf in a long forgotten, undeveloped area, it sits looking out at a large ship drydock facility and probably the cheapest small boat harbor in the..
