Suppenkuche

Suppenkuche

San Francisco, CA

Awesome German food and enormous portions, their schnitzel is the best around.

Absinthe Brasserie & Bar

Absinthe Brasserie & Bar

San Francisco, CA

I prefer the bistro like bar at Absinthe over the more formal dining room. It's cozy and casual. The cocktails and food are always stellar and the bartenders and waitstaff friendly and approachable.

Sebo

Sebo

San Francisco, CA

One of the better sushi spots in the city--very exacting sourcing, with sustainability as a priority. Best seat in the house is at the counter--feels like sitting at your friend's kitchen counter. Omakase is the way to go if your wallet agrees. Have tasted some extraordinary seafood here.

Miette Confiserie

Miette Confiserie

San Francisco, CA

Miette's Hayes Valley mothership is worth the pilgrimage for the made to order organic cotton candy alone, but if you're downtown and can't make the trek, pop into its exquisite Ferry Building storefront for some cake-gazing, one of each macaron (or at the very least, the chocolate orange and hazelnut), a lemon tart, and an eclair.

I like this place. The first few times I visited I didn't like the menu. I think the menu doesn't really make the items looks appetizing, but maybe that's just me. Once I started…
