Raindrops on roses - favorite things?
I've just moved back to SF after 6 years away. Here are some of the things I missed and now can have all the time (okay maybe not all the time, but hopefully often enough.)
Since I'm always looking for suggestions, please add your favorite things to the list and please be specific.
These are things that you dream about or would miss if you move away. If you go to ABC restaurant and would like to try something else on the menu but can't bring yourself not to order XYZ, put it on your list.
Arizmendi - brioche knots
Blue Plate - meatloaf!
Delfina – grilled calamari with white bean salad
El Farolito - el pastor burrito and strawberry or watermelon aqua frescas
Liguria Bakery – pizza foccacia bread. Eating on a bench in Washington Sqare Park
Mario's Bohemian Cigar Bar: sausage sandwiches on foccacia
Park Chow – gingerbread cake with pumpkin ice cream
Swan Oyster Depot - combination salad, fresh oysters, and Anchor
Special romantic occasions at El Paseo in Mill Valley. In spite of the name, it's loaded with French country inn charm.
Also loaded with ambience (l6th century English pub) is the Pelican Inn at Muir beach.
Pier 15 in San Rafael for brunch with friends out on the deck where you can look at the boats and birds.
Picnicking with out-of-towners at China Camp on the bay in San Rafael. BYO or buy sandwiches and beverages at the coffee shop there. Wear your swimsuit and hang out on the beach.
