Table Stakes

The 5 pop-ups you need to know

By The Editors

Because San Francisco loves its new eateries, almost as much as it loves its protected bike lanes, we bring you Table Stakes: a series that answers man’s eternal question (“Uh, what’s new?”) and circles back once every lunar cycle or so. Bon appétit.


A season of change.

Warm weather may have kept the new restaurants unopened, but the pop-up scene is, ah, popping.

Thus we present this month’s Table Stakes, your guide to the most worthy of spectral eateries on our radar this month.

On deck:

  • A perennial rambler snags a permanent home

  • A fine dining supergroup takes its talents underground

  • Obscenely good fried chicken

And more.

So draw back your bow, adventurous chow hunter. And bring a date.
