Beckham-Mania

As if it weren’t hot enough in San Francisco, David Beckham turned up the temperatures in Union Square on Wednesday when he rolled through town to unveil his latest—and may we say greatest—fall ad campaign for Emporio Armani Underwear. The Los Angeles Galaxy soccer star kept the anxious crowd waiting for nearly an hour before he showed up to say a few very brief words of thanks, and then sign autographs for his adoring, squealing fans—many of them sporting a version of Beckham’s number 23 jersey.

Soon to Come: La Mar Cebicheria Peruana

As the economy worsens and real estate in San Francisco continues to hold steady, you’re going to start to hear a lot about the new “cool” neighborhoods. Hunter’s Point and Excelsior, I hear, are up and coming. Dogpatch is where everyone who’s been priced out of the Mission buys a house. Mission Bay? Just listen to the buzz about the light rail. But if we’re talking restaurant-wise, there’s evidence to show that no neighborhood is quite as hot right now as the Embarcadero—and we have a celebrity in our midst to prove it.

Romantic Dining: A Bar For Two

People are always asking me for restaurant suggestions, and more often than not, it’s for a romantic occasion. Funny thing is, I rarely recommend what I consider date-worthy myself. Instead, my mind goes to something a bit more traditional: a white tablecloth, a candle, a quiet, back table for two—something a little Lady and the Tramp (you know, the spaghetti kiss and all).

But if you really want to know what I find romantic? The bar.

Sebo in Hayes Valley: A Japanese Triple Play



Few dining opportunities make me happier than the Japanese triple: a glass of sake, a Japanese beer and some fish. This photo was taken at Sebo in Hayes Valley. The beer, Orion, one of my favorites in the world, is brewed on Okinawa, in the south of Japan. The sake was Wakatake Onigoroshi (I believe . . . it was ordered for me), a Junmai Dai Ginjo. I had two. And the fish . . . it was the first of many bites.
