New restaurants in San Francisco.

It's a new month, which means it's time for your cheat sheet on five brand-new places that just opened around town. Grab a reservation before everyone else does. 

4 Wine Bars With Food Worthy of Pairing

It’s time to say goodbye to the same old charcuterie and cheese plates at wine bars. Really, is that the only thing we can eat while drinking wine? Uh, no. Here are four places that have food menus that are just as appealing and varied as their wine lists. Have at it. And come hungry.

All over the city, new restaurants are confidently offering a different style of menu: family style (or at least they’re listing a few big dishes built to share). Instead of everyone ordering their own plates, now you need to come to a quorum at the table about what you want to order. It's about shared enjoyment. Come together, right now, over food.

Special Menus to Celebrate Lunar New Year

The Lunar New Year is today, and many places all over the city are hosting dinners and events to celebrate the occasion, making special dishes and treats. Welcome to the Year of the Ram/Goat/Sheep!

Valentine’s Day is rolling into town, on a Saturday no less, when most restaurants will be converted into a sea of two-top tables and serving overpriced tasting menus.

But I say if you’re single and like to mingle, here are some ways to make it a fun night out, sans red roses.

7 Perfect New Year's Day Brunches

The city on New Year's Day is all about the walking wounded—some folks will spend the day recovering in bed, and others are ready to head back out there and get in the game. For the latter group, here are some places open for New Year's Day brunch. Just don't forget to tip big; your poor server or bartender is probably in worse shape than you.

It’s Eggnog O’Clock at These SF Bars

Time to loosen that waistband a notch or two, folks, because eggnog season is here. Of course, our local bartenders know how to do it up right. Even if you don’t like the idea of egg in your drink, we have a couple egg-free options.
