  • Mr. Pickle's Sandwich Shop
    Mr. Pickle’s Sandwich Shop sits amid the bustle of downtown Millbrae’s shops and restaurants, its green wooden sign luring hungry pedestrians with the promise of gourmet sandwiches. Inside, chefs rise to expectations, layering thick slices of bread and crunchy rolls with deli meats, cheeses, and unexpected ingredients such as cranberry sauce, pesto, and marinara sauce. An arsenal of specialty sandwiches stands at the ready with attention-grabbing names such as Baby Hawk (pastrami, bacon, and swiss) or Tony Soprano (salami, ham, mortadella, and provolone), in lieu of lackluster titles such as “ham sub” or “some bread with some stuff in it."

  • The Sixteen Mile House
    Sixteen Mile House: A User’s Guide * Keywords:* Lovingly Prepared Prime Rib | Beef Dry-Aged In-House | Local Seafood | Marinated in History | Birthday Favorite Sample Menu To start: build-your-own salad, tossed tableside Steak: slow-roasted prime rib, topped with béarnaise sauce Seafood: fresh shellfish and fish cioppino Sides: creamed corn and baked potato When to Go: If you’ve got your eye on the prime rib or the catch of the day, stop in from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. for an early-bird discount. Otherwise, come on a Friday or Saturday evening to pair your steak or seafood with live music. Inside Tips You’ll enter through the bar, but then you’ll walk through the bar area to the dining room to be seated. If you’re dining with kids, ask if there’s a table by the giant aquarium—they’ll be mesmerized by the clownfish. Past Lives: The original Sixteen Mile House was built in 1872, serving travelers on their way to and from San Francisco (which stood about 16 miles away). In the late 1960s, plans to tear the building down prompted the formation of a local preservationist movement. It wasn’t successful, but in 1970 a pretty good replica opened just down the road. Since 2007, it’s been owned by the ultra-hands-on restaurateur Peter Liu—look for him behind the bar or at the host’s stand. Vocab Lesson Béarnaise: Essentially a hollandaise with different seasonings, this popular steak sauce consists of a base of emulsified butter, egg yolks, and vinegar flavored with shallots, tarragon, and pepper. Cioppino: A fish stew that originated in San Francisco, it’s made with the catch of the day, typically a combination of fish and shellfish. While You’re in the Neighborhood Before: Learn sewing skills via a take-home project such as an embroidered scarf or robe at The Sewing Machine Place (239 Broadway). After: Kick back and wind down with a relaxing foot massage at King Body & Foot Massage (600 El Camino Real), which stays open till 11 p.m. If You Can’t Make It, Try This: Peter’s Cafe (10 El Camino Real)—it shares an owner and an old-fashioned sensibility with Sixteen Mile House, but focuses on more-casual diner classics starting at 6 a.m.

  • Zen Bistro
    With more than 40 different specialty rolls in their repertoire, you'd almost expect to see all of the ingredients jotted down on the sushi chefs' palms. For the volcano roll alone, they have to wrap spicy tuna and asparagus inside a sheath of salmon and avocado before crowning it with snow crab, crunchy tempura flakes, and scallions. If anyone is up to the task of building these impressive amalgamations from memory, though, it's the sushi masters at Zen Sushi Bistro?they boast a combined 20 years of experience, and make it a point of pride to present each of their dishes as a piece of art. This commitment to distinctive menu items and attractive presentation is what helped transform this once small corner sushi joint in Sacramento to a full-grown restaurant in downtown Millbrae. Here, Zen Sushi Bistro surrounds its guests with an elegant atmosphere to match its unique creations, boasting seats along a sushi bar, blue ambient lighting, and framed autographs of the yellowtail fish starring in the popular Fong & Fong roll.
