Recs on recs?
Heading up to SF for the first time and a friend recommended the following places. I was wondering what your take on them was!
- Blue Plate
And for bars/lounges, she recommended:
- Rye (two words: basil gimlet!)
- Zeitgeist (lot of bicyclists/hipsters, but amazing beers on tap and great backyard patio area)
I liked the original SPQR, which was sort of Cal-Roman, but the new chef's style is too Frenchy for my taste. For moderately priced Italian, I prefer Cotogna, Incanto, La Ciccia, and Barbacco.
Otherwise, good places but not much variety. If you have any interest in Thai food, try Lers Ros.
