Looking for midweek SF place to chill during the day with glass of wine maybe something to eat in or outdoor

  • m

I often find myself looking for a casual place to relax read a book and have a glass of wine just looking for suggestions like the idea of outdoors on a nice sunny day. Any thoughts>

        1. oysters and a gimlet at zuni, outdoors, is a decent way to read the financial times. i like the people watching/food/drinks. you pretty much own the table so there's no rush.

          comfortable shoes.

            market street is not too frantic up by zuni. the outside tables and chairs are comfortable and service is, well, roman in it's pace. wines are decent. i like it. pet a few doggies if you get a chance since they are used to owners who like a slow lunch, outdoors, at zuni, too.

          2. Waterbar near the Bay Bridge has a nice outdoor seating area, right on the Embarcadero. It's a pleasant place to look out at the bay and the bridge while enjoying a glass of wine.
