Broadway Prime: A User’s Guide
Dry-Aged Prime Rib | Cut-to-Order Steaks | White-Linen Tablecloths | Casual Vibe
Antipasto: cozze al forno—wood-roasted mussels with sausage and lentils
Primi: rigatoni con polpette—homemade ravioli filled with lemon cream, spinach, and ricotta
Secondi: grilled Berkshire pork chop with tuscan bean ragu
Dolce: buttermilk panna cotta with red wine-poached pears
Where to Sit: Request a chair on what Michelin praises as a “post-card perfect garden terrace.” It’s even heated during the winter.
When to Go: Due to its location in the heart of wine country, the bistro gets busy with tourist traffic on weekends. Try stopping by mid-week to avoid a wait.
Prime rib: bone-in Broadway cut
Vegetarian entree: herb-seasoned, grilled portobello mushroom
Side: English baked popover
The menu lists cuts of meat according to size. Try a Peninsula cut for a smaller portion, or opt for the Broadway cut if you’re craving a heartier slice.
Feel free to leave the tie and suit jacket at home. Despite its white-linen tablecloths and wood paneling, Broadway Prime maintains a casual atmosphere.
Popover: a hollow roll made by baking light egg batter in a muffin tin. It can feature sweet or savory flavors.
While You’re in the Neighborhood
Before: Feel good about browsing the selection of gold cuffs, crystal-encrusted earrings, and heart-shaped pendants at Helen’s Jewels; a portion of every sale is donated to the American Heart Association (1233 Broadway).
After: Try a unique spin on a classic cocktail—such as an hibiscus margarita or a barrel-aged negroni—at Barrel House (305 California Drive).
Steelhead Brewing Co.: A User’s Guide

During warmer months, the outdoor beer garden offers respite from air-conditioned interiors.
The bar is fully stocked, and beer nonenthusiasts can opt for wine, a signature cocktail, or a handcrafted nonalcoholic spicy root beer.

While You’re in the Neighborhood

After: Steelhead closes on the early side, but the party can continue down the street at Barrelhouse (305 California Drive), which serves up craft beer, wine, and specialty cocktails until 2 a.m. every night.

When you live in a city with so much scenery, eating inside can feel a bit stifling. Here are five beautiful restaurant patios in San Francisco that allow you to order in the great outdoors.
Mission Rock Resort (817 Terry Francois Blvd.)
The restaurant group that owns South Park staples MoMo’s, Pedro’s Cantina, and Pete’s Tavern overhauled Mission Rock Resort in late 2012. Now, it’s a bayside escape with plenty of deck seating, calming ocean views, and easy parking. Try bites from the raw bar or fried seafood for lunch, brunch, or happy hour.
Foreign Cinema (2534 Mission St.)
The most popular tables at this Mission stalwart are in the romantic covered patio. In the evening, artsy or retro flicks are projected on the patio wall while sound can be played through drive-in–style speakers at each table. The movies, however, are a secondary draw compared to the Californian-Mediterranean food.
Waterbar (399 The Embarcadero S)
Waterbar is a perennial Top 100 restaurant, so you can bet on some memorable seafood with views of the bay, the Bay Bridge, and the Bay Lights—not to mention $1.25 oysters every day before 5:30 pm.
Bar Agricole (355 11th St.)
Opened by a collective of the city’s best bartenders and sommeliers, Bar Agricole is led by master drink maker Thad Vogler. Unsurprisingly, its cocktails are just as good as its seasonal food. The space’s award-winning design features plenty of redwood, concrete, and glass, plus a spacious patio that’s covered and heated during the winter months.
Biergarten (424 Octavia St.)
Biergarten takes its name literally—its only seating is outdoors, where all of its Bavarian-style street food is served from shipping containers converted into a kitchen and bar. Brews can be ordered by the half- or full-liter, but considering the long lines, it’s best to get the larger of the two before you squeeze into one of the communal picnic tables.

Sushi is not hard to come by in San Francisco, but so much variety means that finding the perfect sushi spot can be a challenge. Here are our picks for the five freshest, most innovative sushi restaurants in the Bay Area.
1. Cha-Ya (762 Valencia St.)
Vegetarian sushi anyone? While that may sound like an oxymoron, Cha-Ya is redefining what sushi means, veggie- and vegan-style. It’s cash-only here, and the wait can be long, but the food is inventive and the service is great. Even meat eaters should enjoy the Cha-Ya Roll: tempura-battered asparagus, avocado, yam, and carrot with Cha-Ya’s special sauce.
2. Minako Organic Japanese Restaurant (2154 Mission St.)
Never tried fried “veggie eel” before? This place has you covered, and it accommodates most dietary restrictions. There’s a vegan menu, a gluten-free menu, animal-product-free tempura, and sushi made with brown rice.
3. Roka Akor (801 Montgomery St.)
The presentation at Roka Akor is out of this world: sushi served on a landscape of salt rocks, ice, bamboo boxes, and light (that’s right, your sushi plate will glow). The tasting menu is a must-try and incorporates a wide range of different fish.
4. Tsunami Sushi Panhandle (1306 Fulton St.)
Tusnami’s classic california rolls are half off during happy hour, but the restaurant is most famous for its combination rolls. Try the Mama San with tempura shrimp and spicy tuna or the Magic Mushroom roll with salmon, snow crab, and enoki mushrooms. Also, consider adding some zing to your meal with sake or wine.
5. Akiko’s Restaurant (431 Bush St.)
Located in Union Square, Akiko’s serves up superfresh sushi—the menu changes daily based on the availability of ingredients. The kitchen focuses on serving sustainable, organic, seasonal, and local fish at high-end prices. The omakase menu will run up to $100 per person, but for sushi die-hards, it’s worth it. If you’re not feeling fish, there are non-sushi items on the menu, too, including teriyaki meats and udon soups.
San Francisco is a city with many different vantage points: between the Bay, the Golden Gate Bridge, and the various eclectic neighborhoods - there are so many sights to take in!
Here are 5 restaurants with stunning views and some of the best ways to see San Francsico:
#1: Greens Restaurant. Located in a converted warehouse in Fort Mason, Greens was a pioneer in establishing vegetarian cuisine in the 80s. One entire wall has floor to ceiling windows, which is perfect for enjoying spectacular views of the SF marina, Golden Gate Bridge, and the hills of Marin. Their meals, made with locally sourced produce and enhanced by wonderful wine pairings, offer an epiphany for meat eaters and vegetarians alike.
#2: Top of the Mark. Built in 1939 and located at the top of the Mark Hopkins Hotel, this bar, lounge and restaurant offers 360 degree panoramas of the San Francisco cityscape. The menu includes an intoxicating selection of 100 martinis along with wines, beers and other spirits. They also have a three course prix-fixe dinner offered with an amuse-bouche and wine pairings.
#3: Slanted Door. A modern Vietnamese restaurant overlooking the San Francisco Bay, located in the Ferry Building and right on the waterfront, this hot spot blends Vietnamese cooking with local SF ingredients. The wine list is Riesling-driven, and other drinks include fresh squeezed juices and hard-to-find Chinese teas. All of their meat is sourced from local farms in the SF Bay Area.
#4: Waterbar. The Waterbar gives diners amazing views of the Bay Bridge while serving up top-notch seafood. Built in 1969, it was converted from a longshoremen’s bar into the restaurant it is today. A favorite among locals, businesspeople and tourists, The Waterbar will not disappoint in its views of the waterfront!
#5: Sutro’s. Located inside the famous Cliff House, Sutro’s features stunning views of the cliffs overlooking Seal Rocks, the Pacific Ocean and Marin coastline. A stylish-casual restaurant, with floor-to-ceiling windows, Sutro’s menu changes seasonally and is focused on the finest organic produce, fresh seafood and local ingredients that are farmed using sustainable practices.
