Morocco's Restaurant's chefs and owners have created a menu that embraces more than 200 years of Morocco's multicultural history. Boasting influences from across the Mediterranean Coast, the chefs craft dishes with flavors from countries as far away as India. Appetizers such as shrimp pil-pil or Moroccan-spiced roasted peppers simmer in zesty sauces, and entrees such as chicken kebabs, lamb and vegetable cous cous, and fresh fish filet all come covered in cilantro with sides of jasmine rice and vegetables.

However, food isn't the only tradition they brought from Morocco. The calendar of events features nightly live Moroccan music and belly dancing throughout the restaurant, and live acoustic guitar plays while servers freely pour the house sangria. Even blues music finds its place in the restaurant, with most songs inspired by a singer who dropped his kebab on the floor.

Sherman Cellars serves as the exclusive tasting room for the red, white, sparkling, and dessert wines from Creekview Vineyards, a small-production winery. Many of these wines emerged with gold, silver, bronze, and best-in-class awards in 2011 at such events as the San Francisco International Wine Competition, Monterey Wine Competition, and Grand Cru Wine Competition. The Cellars' wine educators exhibit their detailed knowledge of the wines as they provide guided tastings of each varietal's flavor and bouquet in an intimate atmosphere, and also point out historical facts such as which grapes descended from dinosaurs. The wines they pour at each tasting draw their styles from a range of global regions, but have all been crafted from local grapes. Many staffers are also pairing aficionados, and channel their passion into regular tasting pairings, which introduce chocolates and wine-infused truffles from local chocolatiers in Napa and Saratoga.

Vegetarian House’s name is slightly misleading—but only slightly. The menu is indeed vegetarian, but it’s also 100% vegan and organic. That means vegetable broth pho that swaps out tripe for tofu and soy protein. Eclectic dishes from Asia and the Middle East round out the menu, and many feature noodles made from scratch.

In a neighborhood known for its diverse residential architecture, it makes sense that one of the most beloved taverns looks more like a house than a bar. And to many, it's always felt like home: the historic building originally served as boarding for Italian immigrants, and in its current state, it has adopted a crowd of sports-loving regulars who come out for Sharks Nights and 49ers games.

As early as 9:30 a.m. on football Sundays, Henry's opens its double front doors so people can gather at the gleaming wood bar, in one of the dining rooms, or if they've violated a schoolmarm's rules, facing a corner. There's breakfast in the morning, but the restaurant is most known for its barbecue. Entrees range from teriyaki chicken to 20-ounce porterhouses and come paired with a baked potato and garlic bread. The food has built such a reputation over the past 50 years that it's attracted special guests such as Jimmy Fallon and Man v. Food's Adam Richman.

Its name may contain the word "museum," but The Tech Museum of Innovation prefers not to wallow in the past. Since its earliest days in 1978, it has exhibited the timeless principles of science while also celebrating the latest in technological achievement. In doing so, the institution inspires visitors to apply that same spirit of creative problem-solving to all aspects of life.
