Best Charcuterie in SF

I am soliciting the help of the hounds out there in SF! My wife and I are coming out in 2 weeks, and I would like to use the vacation as an excuse to try my first charcuterie plate.

Does anyone have a suggestion for a restaurant (in the city) that has TOP NOTCH charcuterie?

Thank you!

  1. Now that you mentioned it Phunny, I'd like to know too! A great bundle would be wine, charcuterie, and cheese. YUMMY! Waiting anxiously :)

      for pure salumi/meats, I like the one at Zuppa a LOT. If you're looking for more than cured meats I defer to others...

      564 4th Street, San Francisco, CA 94107

    2. If you want it with a view get take out at Boccalone in the Ferry Building. Here an old post where Pane liked the one at Spruce even better.
      If you make it to Oakland, Adesso.
      Adesso (Oakland) for the sheer number and quality of house-made salumi.

      Edit: Boccalone menu

      1. I recently enjoyed the Charcuterie plate at Des Amis, the newly opened French bistro on Union Street at Buchanan.

        1. Perbacco and Barbacco (same stuff); Boccalone is a spinoff of Incanto, where you can get a platter; La Ciccia; A16 ...

            Yeah, house-cured charcuterie/salumi has been a (welcome) trend.
