To keep tabs on every San Francisco restaurant and bar opening is folly. But to keep tabs on the most worthy? Yeoman’s work, and we’re proud to do it. Thus we present Table Stakes, a monthly rundown of the five (or so) must-know spots that have swung wide their doors in the past thirty (or so). Bon appétit.
No time beats springtime.
Second chances. New beginings. Long-awaited comebacks.
In baseball, in life and in our hallowed Bay Area dining scene.
This month, five new restaurants got a chance to show off what they've got — from brine-fermented fries to a bigger, better Hawker Fare. Onwards and upwards, friends.
Enjoy the guide.
Aaron London from the deeply missed Ubuntu is back with a blondwood temple paying homage to inventive vegetarianism — and French fries fermented in brine.
Exquisite new Moroccan courtesy of the team behind Michelin-starred Aziza that doubles as the first-date destination in SoMa.
An Oakland favorite (Hawker Fare) gets a Valencia Street upgrade, earning must-drink status thanks to its upstairs bar alone.
Plus, a tribute to the Bluth family at the Hawaiian-inflected Liholiho Yacht Club.
So dine on, and drink well.
And come back again.
