The brainchild of two native San Franciscan chefs, Dell'Uva sprung from a joint love of food and wine, inspired by travels around the world. After finishing culinary school, Juri McCorkle set off on a journey that carried his palate from Vietnamese markets to Swedish harvests, learning new cooking techniques and ways of saying "These are onion tears" along the way. Returning to the states with a renewed sense of epicurean adventurism, Juri teamed up with chef Jason Marcucci. Together, the two dreamed up a food and wine venue reminiscent of cozy cafés found abroad. The result was Dell'Uva, where an extensive selection of domestic and imported varietals transports palates across the globe, from Napa Valley to Argentina. Diners tuck into tapas from a menu focused on locally sourced ingredients, along with artisan cheeses and charcuterie-cured meats. Dishes pair with themed wine flights composed of vintages from Bordeaux, bubbly wines from France, Italy, and Napa, and dessert wines. Reclining on the outdoor patio or inside amidst the warm tones of the bar and dining room, guests snack on house-cured rosemary balsamic olives, rustic pizzas, and rich desserts.
In 2008, literary-minded barkeeps opened the doors to McTeague's Saloon, named after Frank Norris's naturalist novel about an uncouth dentist living on Polk Street in the early 20th century. Thrillist praises the bar's nostalgic atmosphere, calling it an "homage to turn of the century NorCal … executed in exacting detail." Like McTeague's dental parlor, the bar welcomes customers with a giant golden molar hanging over the door. Inside, old-timey details include deep booths, exposed ceiling beams, and a redwood bar, and a glowing jukebox, TVs playing sports, and running water remind patrons of the modern world's more notable amenities. Knowledgeable bartenders expound upon a formidable selection of bourbon, scotch, and whiskey or fill pints from a vast selection of on-tap brews. Occasionally, the small stage hosts live concerts, delighting intimate audiences with guitar ditties, tuneful vocals, or protracted flossing demonstrations.
Beneath twin lanterns rests the entrance to a quiet punch house modeled after the classic British punch houses of the Victorian era. These are not punches of fruit or fist, but rather of rum, the chosen inebriant of Hobson's Choice. The bar stocks more than 120 varieties of this sugary spirit, including Old Grog, Myers's, and Neisson Réserve Spéciale, as well as rare and limited-quantity batches. Beneath a line of antique chandeliers dripping with sweet, sweet history, the staff fills glasses with specialty cocktails such as the Planter's Punch, a mixture of Coruba dark Jamaican rum, fresh orange juice, lemon juice, and grenadine. To chase these libations, they also serve food catered by the nearby Asqew Grill.
The Dark Room is a 50-seat performance space plunked in the Mission’s exact center, serving as a powerhouse of stand-up and underground theater for years. While not a black box, student-run space per se, guests definitely shouldn’t expect any frills at this former bar. Far from bad drapes and the standard comedy club’s brick wall background, this eccentric space pops with personality, including bathrooms plastered in historical tidbits from the SF theater scene from years past. Frequent shows include indie stand up sets, local talent shows and, lately, live renditions of classic TV episodes and a Sunday Bad Movie Night, which is something of a local tradition. For those looking to inquire, The Dark Room also doubles as a rentable space for rehearsals or shows.
