Eat + Drink
In the February print issue of 7x7, which is the annual Big Eat Issue and out this week, I take you on a tour of some of the city's most unique and beautiful desserts featuring out-of-the-ordinary winter citrus. Of course, this being the height of citrus season in local farmers' markets, you'll also find tons of great cocktails around town featuring the freshest of the fresh blood oranges, Meyer lemons, and more.
In this week's food-scene news, the Mission's Roxy's Cafe calls it quits, Mama's in North Beach is opening a new market and a second location nearby, Bun Mee debuts a second location in the FiDi, and Fifth Floor says goodbye for good.
Ownership and address changes in Marin mean new dining experiences, with scores of meaty treats at a BBQ outpost that has Texas brisket, cheese bread, baby back ribs and a righteously good happy hour. In Corte Madera, the dining scene has an updated source for big Danish breakfast and lunch fare.
Our city is chock-full of interesting people and wild personalities. Overwhelmed by the coolness? Every week we'll pick one standout local we'd love to be friends with to answer seven essential questions about their life in San Francisco.
It’s a new year, and there are plenty of new places to visit for one of SF’s favorite pastimes: brunch. All the crazy-gorgeous weather we’re having should make it very easy for you to roll out of bed and hit one of these places up.

Restaurant Week is one of the best times of the year in the East Bay. Not only do local chefs get the chance to show off what they got to the SF residents and tourists who flock to our shores for the special occasion, but also people on a budget (aka me) get the chance to dine at gourmet spots for an incredibly affordable price.
