Negroni Week runs June 2nd-8th in restaurants and bars throughout San Francisco, and around the world.
Despite San Francisco’s well-earned reputation for cool and foggy summer weather, we also enjoy warm and clear days that are perfect for picnics. Beer is the ideal beverage choice for many picnic foods since the same cooking process that gives malt its caramel flavor also gives meats and vegetables theirs.
The concept of a female bartender, though hardly a new one, has been something of a novelty during the last decade's craft cocktail explosion – a movement dominated by men, often with mustaches. But in San Francisco, female bartenders and bar managers are now commonplace in the city's nicer drinking establishments.
Order the Qishan minced pork noodles from Terra Cotta Warrior (415-681-3288) in the Outer Sunset, and you’ll be presented with a piping hot bowl filled to the brim with a soul-warming, spicy-sour broth. Just below the surface you’ll find a single, seemingly neverending noodle.
Dine About Town, aka Restaurant Week in SF, is returning for a second round this year from June 1 - 15. While the idea of prix-fixe two- or three-course lunches and dinners from some of the city's best restos is usually something to celebrate, sadly, not all the menus are worth getting too excited over. That's why we perused all of this year's participants to bring you the crème de la crème of restaurant week menus, so you can know what's worth putting pants on and hitting the scene for.
