Weekly Hot Tips – July 7

Welcome everyone!!!  Weekly Hot Tips – July 7 is a compilation of the many weeks of news that I’ve been behind on.  Thank you for your patience!!  You’ll find news about San Francisco restaurants and new restaurant openings, food and wine as well as activities around the bay.

San Francisco Restaurants

Best tacos in the Mission???  Thrillist delivers the top ten here.

Best sushi in the City??  Thrillist delivers another list.  I think Maruya should have received more than honorable mention.  Believe me, Ichi Ni is at the top of my list!!

5959-abstractBrunch??  Don’t you love it, especially in the summer?  Here’s Thrillist’s ‘list‘ by ‘hood.

Private $498 (seriously this is a deal) test kitchen dinners at Saison on Saturdays in their private kitchen.  Check it out here.

You’re going to see me at Palm House very soon, mainly because it’s getting some really good press, and the chef is a very good friend of Pam who I’m just getting to know.  AND, Thrillist says they have one of the best new burgers in San Francisco.  Burgers are my downfall.  I just love them, almost as much as dive bars!!

6026-abstractZagat discusses the eight best hot dogs in San Francisco.

Dave Cruz was the chef at Ad Hoc, and now he has a six-month popup worth a try according to EaterSF.

The 33 best beer bars in the country according to Thrillist.  I’m going to need this information in 8 months and 24 days.

The best beer gardens in San Francisco according to Zagat

Zagat’s top fried chicken joints.  I just LOVE fried chicken.  I used to ask for my mom to cook it on every birthday.

Japanese!  Get ready people!!  Michael Minna is partnering in two Japanese restaurants at 101 California which has been haunted for years.  Best of luck you guys!!!  I really mean it!!  The parklet, so to speak, at 101 California ALWAYS has people milling around, so this may be the time for this kind of change.

Food & Wine

80-red-crab-vector-1113tm-v1Have you spent time in New York at one of Marcus Samuelsson’s eponic restaurants??  TastingTable delivers for you his favorite sandwich.  It involves crab.  Read on…

Swedish food is becoming a San Francisco trend.  TastingTable delivers a wonderful Swedish midsummer menu.

State Bird ProvisionsMy buddies from State Bird Provisions have signed a deal for a cookbook according to EaterSF.  Can’t wait to read this, as they have some really innovative food.  May I be an editor or beta tester pretty please????

It seems sacrilegious in the summer to be telling everyone that the best homemade burger is NOT grilled, but TastingTable thinks otherwise.

Asian-style porcetta?  Bring it, AND thank you TastingTable!!

CocktailsHawthorn is a new subterranean cocktail lounge at Geary and Kearny, perfect for after-shopping stops…

EaterSF updates their outdoor dining map just in time for you to enjoy the San Francisco summer (in a sweatshirt)!


If you haven’t been to the Street Food Festival, you really need to go this year, as it may be their last according to EaterSF.
