Potrero Hillís New Spot for Raw Fish, Small Plates and Sake
By Sarah Sung (Nov 14, 2008)
On a street with French, Mediterranean, Chinese, Southeast Asian and, of course, pizza, the only cuisine thatís been missing on Potrero Hillís 18th Street corridor is Japanese, until this year -- when Umi opened its doors. A casual, sit-down sushi spot, the restaurant is a welcome addition to an already globally cuisine-rich street. More
Same Grand Veranda, Slightly Better Food
By Tracie Broom (Nov 7, 2008)
These days, serving upscale Vietnamese cuisine is by no means a pioneer move. But when Le Colonial opened its San Francisco branch in 1998, the concept was still fairly new. $10 cocktails with fresh ingredients were considered art nouveau, and dot-com bank accounts didn't flinch at the downtown prices. A (somewhat cheesy) nightclub element has since been added to the program, but what's remained steady is the appeal of Le Colonial's breezy veranda, its elegant interior, and its approachable, easily shared menu. More
Burma Superstarís Sibling Shines
By sarah sung (Oct 31, 2008)
Opened in 2007 just down the street from its sibling restaurant, the ever-popular Burma Superstar, B Star Bar brings a more casual, contemporary sensibility in both food and design to Clement Street. This is the place to go when youíre looking for a good, low-key meal and a friendly atmosphere to catch up with a few friends. More
An Italian Escape in the Lower Haight
By genevieve robertson (Oct 24, 2008)
The Lower Haight isnít known for high-end dining or hot spots. But with the addition of Uva Enoteca, Molotovís is now sandwiched between some real polish with RNM on the other side. With Uva, friends and owners Boris Nemchenok and Ben Hetzel have created a jewel of a spot in the center of the gritty lower Haight. With pristine white walls, warm wood and an exposed brick wall, the space is both inviting and unpretentious. Even when packed, thereís an air of calm that pulls you in; you just canít help but want to sit at those glossy wood tables and swirl the crystalline glasses. More
Going up?
By Daniel Goldstein (Oct 17, 2008)
When Fifth Floor opened in 1999, on the fifth floor of the Hotel Palomar, San Francisco swooned over its luxuriously innovative food and decor. Dishes such as a playful poussin with foie gras jus showed off Chef George Morrone's honed technique and aptitude for fun. Over the next few years a generation of high-spenders were introduced to fine-dining and pricey Burgundy atop its zebra-striped carpets. More
Modern Takes on Seafood Canít Beat The Classics
By Gloria Tai (Oct 10, 2008)
Seafood has been a quiet but growing trend of late. To name just a few variations on this theme, there is the upscale new Waterbar on the Embarcadero, the shack-style Woodhouse Fish Company (soon to open its second location on Fillmore) and Fish (in Sausalito), the sustainably-focused Fish and Farm (in the Theater District), raw takes at Bar Crudo (soon to move to the Divisadero corridor), and the newly opened Nettie's Crab Shack (in the old Palmetto spot on Union). More
The Swankier Sister of the Potrero Hill original
By Michelle Chan (Oct 3, 2008)
Opened in Spring 2008 by the team that brought us Plouf and Chez Maman, Chez Papa Resto is the swankier version of the original Chez Papa Bistrot in Potrero Hill. Located in the newly-renovated Mint Plaza, the resto's large outdoor patio injects some life to what was formerly a sketchy alleyway, and its flavorful burgers (of Chez Maman pedigree) have downtown office workers declaring it their favorite new lunch spot. More
Where Dinner Becomes the Show
By Sarah Sung (Sep 26, 2008)
Upon entering Elizabeth Falknerís new theater-scale SOMA address, you feel as much "on stage" as the local celeb chef/owner herself, with her easily recognizable platinum buzz cut. Named after the prominent American film auteur Orson Welles, Orson has been luring adventurous diners since its February 2008 opening, featuring an avant-garde menu full of boundary-pushing recipes -- from peppery chocolate pizza to maple-bacon ice cream. More
Hayes Valley Wins a Casual-Chic Sushi Counter
By Gloria Tai (Sep 19, 2008)
Hot trend of late: the casual, Japanese bar food scene. (Think O Izakaya and Sebo.) While the sushi offerings in these "Japanese tapas" bars are of the familiar, Americanized kind -- with ingredient flair and additions that seem to have no business in sushi -- the feel is Tokyo intimate. Domo joins the club, offering a chic, casual, and reasonably priced option for a quick sushi fix in Hayes Valley, just around the corner from sushi purist zone Sebo. More
Jazzing Up the Fillmore
By Sarah Sung (Sep 12, 2008)
This massive, 28,000 square-foot, multi-story restaurant/bar/jazz club -- the West Bay sister to the original Yoshi's in Oakland's Jack London Square -- debuted in November 2007 to huge hype, resulting in a mix of rave and blah reviews for its upscale Japanese menu. Having now established itself as a frontrunner among the cityís dinner-and-a-show offerings, Yoshi's has settled in as a defining force within the blossoming Fillmore Jazz District. More
