  • Smokin' Warehouse Barbecue
    An electrical warehouse isn't the first place you might look for good barbecue. But for Smokin' Warehouse Barbecue owner Bill Lee, his warehouse was the perfect mix of expansive size and industrial chic. Since 2010, that's where he and his staff of 10 have spent their days slow-cooking cuts of meat, from barbecue-slathered chicken quarters to their specialty beef brisket. They spend up to 10 hours smoking and cooking each slab of brisket, helping to infuse the meat with zesty flavors without requiring cows to graze in fields of jalape?os. But the warehouse's chefs don't just follow classic barbecue recipes. They also play with ingredients to create unique hybrids such as chicken-tender sandwiches topped with barbecue sauce and burgers piled high with tender pulled pork and crispy onion rings. The fruits of their labor are sold from the warehouse as well as a food truck; follow the food truck's whereabouts here.

Where to Sit If you're feeling nosy: pop a squat near a window and people-watch If you're feeling social: have a seat at the long, communal table If you're feeling outdoorsy: step through the roll-up garage door and take a seat on the patio, or sit next to the door to enjoy the breeze while inside. If you're feeling shy: Book a private event in one of the cordoned-off dining rooms. Press Box “The mac ‘n’ cheese’s crust is crunchy and salty, the sauce tangy and fragrant with rosemary. This small ramekin . . . is big on flavor and is rich enough that it's actually the perfect serving size.” — 7x7 “Paragon Restaurant serves bar food near San Francisco's AT&T Park, but don't expect to find it offering the standard soft pretzel with mustard. Instead, Paragon chef Spencer O'Meara serves a house-made soft rye-flour pretzel with caraway seeds with a Mt. Tam cheese and pale-ale dipping sauce. . . . [It’s] high-quality pub food.” — Wall Street Journal While You're in the Neighborhood Before: Work up an appetite by bowling at the lounge-style Lucky Strike (200 King Street), located a block down Townsend St. After: Walk one block to catch a Giants game at AT&T Park. On home-game days, Paragon opens half an hour early.
