John’s Grill

John’s Grill has been around since 1908.  The last time we were there was election day for a lunch party hosted by our former mayor, Willie Brown.  We decided to head back to John’s Grill for lunch. I love the ambiance of old restaurants.  There’s a quaint bar in the..

Balboa Cafe

We met our real estate agent on the way out of town to the Sonoma Coast.  Fridays are tough Marin and Sonoma traffic, so it’s best to get out of town early.  By the way, what the heck is with the gridlock traffic in San Francisco?  It appears you can’t..

The Ramp

The Ramp Restaurant has been around for years.  I’ve always been a fan of Mission Rock Resort, so this week was my first visit to The Ramp.  Fortunately for me, I don’t have to go to a restaurant three times before writing a review like Michael Bauer of the San..
