  • Mission Cheese
    Mission Cheese: A User’s Guide Artisanal American Cheese | Wine Bar | Craft Beer and Cider | Housemade Pickles | Farmhouse-Inspired Decor Sample Menu Appetizer: charcuterie plate of shredded duck, housemade pickles, and quince butter Entree: mac & cheese with clothbound cheddar, washed rind cow’s-milk cheese, and toasted breadcrumbs Wine: zinfandel, County Line, Russian River Dessert: milk and cookies, baked to order Where to Sit: the bar. Crafted from a single slab of wood, it’s the epicenter of Mission Cheese. You’ll get to see the cheesemongers in their element as they select cheeses from the glass cooling cases. While You’re Waiting Grab a copy of the current drink list. The wine, beer, and cider offerings update frequently. Look at the pickling jars lining the shelves and guess what’s in each one. You’ll see all kinds of house-pickled veggies, such as carrots, cauliflower, and California-grown olives. Inside Tips Treat yourself to a cheese flight. Between the rotating selection and the cheesemongers’ whims, it’s unlikely you’ll ever get the same flight twice. The iced coffee isn’t chilled hot coffee. It’s cold-brewed for at least 12 hours using beans from Fort Bragg–based Thanksgiving Coffee Company. Vocab Lesson Cheesemonger: an expert in cheese. Cheesemongers also tend to have great knowledge in other forms or dairy, such as butter and cream, as well as in breads, fruits, and other foods that help bring out the flavors in cheese. Levain: French for “leaven,” the word is sometimes used interchangeably with sourdough. While You’re in the Neighborhood Before: Peruse vintage furnishings at The Apartment (3649 18th Street), a resale shop known for its funky, eclectic selection. After: Indulge in small-batch confections at Dandelion Chocolate (740 Valencia Street), which calls itself “a bean-to-bar chocolate factory.”

  • The Richmond
    The Richmond Restaurant & Catering Company: A User’s Guide Upscale American | Five-Course Tasting Menu | Affordable Wine List | Special-Event Catering Sample Menu Appetizer: crab cake with spinach salad Entree: bone-in honey-mustard pork roast with mashed potatoes and seasonal veggies Dessert: warm chocolate-and-peanut-butter torte with housemade vanilla ice cream Where to Sit: If you're looking for a private spot to whisper sweet nothings to your loved one or to your dessert, ask for a table that's curtained off from the rest of the dining room. When to Go: While it's usually closed for lunch and all day Sunday and Monday, the restaurant can be booked for private parties. Inside Tips Diners receive an amuse-bouche. Instead of using food that’s been flown, trucked, or catapulted in from out of state, many ingredients come from local farms and ranches. The Richmond prides itself on its affordable wines from small, family-run wineries, but if it doesn't offer a bottle you'd like, you can bring up to two of your own and pay the $20 corkage fee. Have the restaurant cater your next event. Starting at $70 per person, packages include a four-course tasting menu, mobile bar, and all the linens, chairs, and silverware you’ll need. Vocab Lesson Amuse-bouche: a small, complimentary dish served before the first course. Sweetbreads: mellow-tasting, smooth-textured morsels taken from a lamb or calf’s thymus gland or pancreas. While You’re in the Neighborhood For the science lover: The California Academy of Sciences (55 Music Concourse Drive) showcases all things scientific, from an albino alligator to an interactive skull exhibit to a verdant 197,000-square-foot “living roof.” For the art lover: Yoruba crowns, contemporary American paintings, Mongolian rugs, and Dutch sculptures are among the artistic treasures on display at the de Young Museum (50 Hagiwara Tea Garden Drive).

The wild decor makes it a good spot for a first date because, according to UrbanDaddy, you "won’t lack for things to talk about." Loló gets its style sense—and name—from co-owner and artist Lorena "Loló " Zertuche. When to Go: You can celebrate the end of the week—or mourn the upcoming weekdays—with lunchtime cocktails served 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday–Sunday. Brunch is also served on those days, from 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. High Praise "A meal at Loló is an otherworldly experience that overloads the senses in the most delightful way." — SFGate "The gorditas, in a mezcal barbecue concoction, were deep, earthy and sweet, improved by the satisfying crunch of cabbage slaw." — San Francisco Examiner Vocab Lesson Ceviche: fresh, raw fish marinated in citrus juices and various seasonings. Mezcal: a distilled Mexican liquor made from agave plants that possesses a smoky, peppery taste that’s often masked with sweeteners and flavoring. If You Can't Make It, Try This The owners also run Loló Cevichería (3230 22nd Street), which focuses on ceviche, along with some Loló menu favorites.

The Vibe: Spruce is housed in a restored, 1930s-era garage, and its large space features a private dining room, a café, and a restaurant embellished with ostrich-leather chairs. Awards and Acclaim Awarded one star by the Michelin Guide Named one of the country’s best new restaurants by Esquire Praised by Gayot for its “imaginative dishes borne of impeccable pedigree” Vocab Lesson Charcuterie: a meat-centric platter usually consisting of (primarily pork) sausages, pâtés, and other prepared meats. Sweetbreads: mellow-tasting, smooth-textured morsels taken from a lamb or calf’s thymus gland or pancreas. While You're in the Neighborhood Before: Browse high-end men’s and women’s consignment apparel at Goodbyes (3462 Sacramento Street).

Dim lighting softly illuminates the full bar, and framed black-and-white art add subtle panache to the walls. When to Go: Tuesday night for wine tastings from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Where to Sit: one of the comfy couches that speckle the laidback space. If you and your party are looking for a bit of privacy, however, request the long, bench-lined nook that can be set apart from the main room by curtains. Inside Tip If you plan on bringing a date, which many Yelp! reviewers suggest, be sure to stop by on Wednesday from 4–7 p.m. That’s when Wine Jar holds its weekly “Date Night” special, giving out free cheese plates with the purchase of a bottle. While You’re in the Neighborhood Before: Catch up on buzz-worthy indie flicks by catching a matinee at the Sundance Kabuki Cinema (1881 Post Street) After: Put that wine-induced euphoria to use by grooving to one of the live blues, funk, or soul acts at Boom Boom Room (1601 Fillmore Street), a cocktail lounge and venue modeled after the old-fashioned juke joints of yore.
