Organic foods/ free range meats in SF restaurant

Hi Everyone,

I am looking for a place for an out of towner and just can't think of this off the top of my head. They want somewhere very typical SF/ California with organic meats veggies etc. Sunday night dinner so no One Market and they have been to Globe before (despite the farmer's market menu Sunday I do want to try and diversify). They are staying on Nob Hill and want to dine somewhere within a mile or two.

Thank you so much for your help!

    1. Yeah, Zuni's the closest I can think of.

      1. Oops! They've been to Zuni already too! Also, not quite the distance they were hoping for. Anything else? Or somewhere that comes across as such? I know Kokkari is "meat" intensive!

        1. I've never eaten there (other than tasting their mango lassi beverage from their Ferry Building outpost table), but Alive! on Lombard is just 1.5 miles from Nob Hill and serves mostly organic veggies, albeit uncooked. No meats though.

          I can't exactly agree that an organic meats/veggies meal is "very typical SF/California". Certainly fresh, seasonal, produce, seafood, Asian-inspired and such are seemingly more prevalent ideas which come to mind, but saying organic is "very typical", despite it's local popularity, would be a rather imprecise stereotype of the many foods we enjoy here.

          1. Tablespoon on Polk Street & Vallejo very much a local but SF dine.
