Knockout

Knockout

San Francisco, CA

A go-to spot for live music, DJs, and cheap imbibing on Mission Street. You may find yourself in the photo booth after a few too many Hamm's + whiskey specials. Cash only.

Acme Bread

Acme Bread

San Francisco, CA

Follow your nose to this busy bakery, where fresh-baked loaves of organic olive bread and walnut levain will have you eating your gluten quota for the year in a single sitting, right out of the bag. Get an epi loaf for sure--and try not to eat every single bread 'leaf' before you've even left the building.

The Sentinel

The Sentinel

San Francisco, CA

Satisfying made-to-order limited edition sandwiches. Carnivores will love the roast beef or the meatball.

Lolo

Lolo

San Francisco, CA

This place is a riot of color and playful style. The menu of Mexican dishes just keeps getting better, from the tinga to the classic (and must-order) taco tropical. Fun date spot, and the margaritas are delish. Friendly staff, fun crowd.

Maverick Restaurant. This is by far my favorite place for fried chicken in the city! The restaurant may be small (highly recommend making reservations) but their food is packed with big, bold flavors. The southern fried chicken is served with potato pave, swiss chard and an incredible red eye gravy. Portions are generous. The best part is the fried chicken tastes just as good for leftovers the next day.… read more


flour + water. Wood-fired artisanal pizzas are the name of the game at this instant Bay Area classic, but the pastas are if possible even better. You can't get simplified, perfectly executed rustic Italian food better anywhere on the west coast. … read more


20 Spot. Cozy Mission place off the main drag--cool mid-century vibe, choice wines, and the small plates are inventive (don't miss the deviled eggs and cheese plate).… read more
