Weekly Hot Tips – April 14
Weekly Hot Tips – April 14 – is another posting of my research on the latest happenings in San Francisco and the Bay Area.
San Francisco Restaurants
Chefs Feed gives us the lowdown on the top 10 places for Easter brunch here.
Ike’s Place – This guy had a lines long following on 16th near Noe, and he got evicted. He found a spot just up the street to remain a hot spot for sandwiches – on my list still. Turns out they have a secret menu of FIFTY sandwiches per Thrillist.
EaterSF does a monthly update on the top 38 places to visit here, and yes, you’ve seen it here before. So why is it 38? How could you possibly visit all 38??
Just when you think you’ve seen it all, enter a new taste. Prubechu (they don’t have a website but Yelp ranks them 4.5 stars) is a new restaurant at a 24th and Mission, specializing in the foods of Guam. Michael Bauer of the San Francisco Chronicle reviews.
And, just in time for Easter, Thrillist shows us the best brunches in San Francisco.
Charles Phan’s new British-themed restaurant is now open. Tasting Table tells you what to order.
Caribbean food seems to be trending lately. Palm House is new on Union Street just behind the second oldest palm tree in California. EaterSF will tell you all about it here.
Food and Wine
Basa Seafood Express – The San Francisco Chronicle does a weekly Bargain Bites and Bargain Bar Bites on Thursdays. I had no idea that this place is owned by a guy who also owns Sun Fat Seafood on Mission – a place I like to buy fish to cook at home. Turns out that he’s expanded Basa to include eating in, and the sashimi grade fish looks really great.
Panna – If you haven’t checked it out yet, please do. It’s a beautiful video how-to magazine with wonderful recipes.
David Lebovitz used to work at Chez Panisse. He now lives in Paris and chronicles his experiences in ‘The Sweet Life in Paris’, and now his ‘My Paris Kitchen’ gives you classic French recipes from a tried and true chef. I just got the book last week, and I really like it.
Olivier’s Butchery has reopened after a renovation, just in time for Passover and Easter.
Park for free in SF??? CARMAnation can do that for you. Check out Thrillist’s article.
Urban Putt is San Francisco’s new and only miniature golf course. They also serve food, and Zagat gives us the low-down.
Sausalito is always a nice day, starting with a ferry ride, art, great views and good food. 7×7 tells us where to eat.
