Tomatoes are the heart of summer. Here in San Francisco, we pride ourselves on the locally grown stuff–not those cookie-cutter, plastic looking tomatoes found on supermarket shelves. We’re talking juicy heirlooms, whether big, small, red, green, orange, yellow, round, flat, or lopsided.
Are you a brunch fiend, but tired of the standard bacon and egg plate? Are those hash browns leaving you more tired than inspired? Have no fear, “two eggs any style” can be much more exciting than what you’re used to.
The West and East Coasts are longtime seafood rivals: Who has the better lobster, the more superior oysters, or the freshest crabs? But there’s one thing we Westerners excel at, hands down, and that’s wild salmon.
Summer’s still hanging on, and although our gloomy San Francisco weather wouldn’t show it, that means summer fruits are still in season. We're specifically talking all those plump, juicy melons that are crowding farmers markets, and bursting with color and flavor.

Campari seems to have taken over the bar scene here in San Francisco, and we’re not complaining. This sweet-yet-bitter Italian aperitif pairs well in cocktails, or stands strong on its own.

We’ve rounded up a few of these exciting new treats:
The Fourth of July has arrived, which, to us, is yet another excuse for drinks, barbecues, park hangs, and picnics. While nothing quite reminds us of the fourth like a cold beer and a hot dog, it never hurts to have some more decadent options.
The weather’s heating up just in time for Pride weekend, which is sure to be even more sweet after the recent political rulings. So put on your multicolored short shorts, your feathered boas, and your mile-high heels, and get ready to celebrate our city’s most anticipated annual event. But what’s a celebration without the right cocktails and some festive treats?
