Couched on the Yucatan Peninsula sits Tulum, home to one of Mexico's most stunning Mayan ruins, a biosphere reserve, and a steadily growing tourism industry that captures the beauty of the Caribbean coastline (without the spring break-soaked madness of nearby Cancun). With archeological wonders to explore, water sports and yoga galore, obsession-worthy eats, and some seriously stylish digs, Tulum is nicely set up to make a visiting San Franciscan feel right at home... well, perhaps a paradise-like home-away-from-home.
Plus more new drinking destinations and In-N-Out in Alameda.
What to eat this week on the Peninsula.
Because nothing says spring like a big ol' crawfish boil.
This week, it's all about the much-anticipated opening of Starline Social Club in Uptown Oakland. Okay, it's about mom, too, but we think she'll understand our excitement.
This week, Patxi's Pizza and Off The Grid's seek South Bay domination. Plus, Chinese food in Burlingame and bubble tea in Millbrae!
Plus, chef change-ups in St. Helena, Trestle opens in Jackson Square, and a preview of forthcoming veg-centric restaurant, Citizen Fox.
Spring is in the air, and we feel like celebrating. But sometimes, the after-effects of celebration can be painful. Cure what ails you with a hearty hangover brunch, rib-sticking Sicilian cuisine, a hot cup of deep black Joe, and more.
