What's new in SF?

  • k

I am a former Bay Area denizen returning in a few weeks for the first time in 2 years. We will be in town May 31-June 3 for a wedding (fortunately, the reception is a Chinese banquet, yum) but we have a couple of days (Thursday and Friday) free for the eating. We like everything, and are open to both pricey and less-pricey options. Any recommendations for new and delightful places we should visit? We'd prefer to stay in SF or the East Bay. Many thanks.

  1. What restaurants were you particularly fond of when you lived here?

      1. Nopa, A16, and Bocadillas are some great new restaurants.

          I'm actually not a big fan of A16. If you want great pizza, try Delfina Pizzeria which opened recently.

          1. re: gemster

            I understood A16's strength to be pasta.

        2. Quince opened in 2003, A16 and Bocadillos in 2004, so not new since the last time the original poster was here.

          1. Nopa, Farmer Brown's, Pizzaiolo, Range, Ici (ice cream)

              Bi-Rite Creamery's also new for ice cream.

              Ici's in Berkeley.

            2. Perbacco. Luella opened about 2.5 years ago.

              1. La Ciccia.

                Damn, so many great new places, it's hard to keep track.

                1. Bar Tartine. Great bread from their bakery and now that we're full on into spring, their salads should be good. Memorable appetizers include an excellent heirloom tomato with watermelon salad as well as monterey squid with pork belly.

                  1. Thank you so much -- this is great. .
