Fillmore and Fell Area

I am renting a house near Fillmore and Fell (Central North? Alamo Square? ) for a week in September for my sailing team (10 people). I do not know the area at all and would appreciate input on proper restaurants in the area. Specifically, those within walking distance of the pad or anything that is adjacent to Fillmore since we'll be commuting to the Marina on the MUNI #22. Thanks in advance!

      Hayes and Vine closed years ago. There are better Middle Eastern places closer than Mediterranee.

    2. That's pretty close to NOPA and Nopalito and a few nice cafes.

      560 Divisadero St, San Francisco, CA 94117

      306 Broderick St, San Francisco, CA

      1. I don't know what a "proper restaurant" is in your book.

        Walk down to height and fillmore (3 blocks the short way) and you've got Thep Phanom and Indian Oven, Memphis Minnie's, the Toranado, and a huge number of other places.

            These days there's a line of 30+ people when the place opens. They continue to take orders, which stack up, so they tell you when to come back to pick up your burger. Unless you show up in the first group of orders, there can be a 2 hour wait. Which is fine for locals or people passing the time in Toronado, but I never recommend the Tuesday burger to anyone anymore.

        2. If you wanted to buy food and cook there are really good grocers near by:

          Falletti Foods (Fell and Broderick) and
          Whole Foods (Fillmore and Haight)

            Note that Haight Fillmore Whole Foods is a funky neighborhood convenience / liquor store, not a branch of the Whole Foods chain. I'd be happy to have it down the block but it's not remotely in the same class with Falletti Foods.

          2. There are dense clusters of restaurants along Divisadero north of Fell (aka Nopa) a few blocks east and along Haight ("Lower Haight") a few blocks south.
