Top 5 San Francisco Restaurants

A guest post by Chelsea Marrs from Chow Down USA.

Growing up in a big time foodie city like San Francisco, it’s so hard to pick a favorite restaurant or dish! I’ve been to countless venues, from Michelin-starred to holes-in-the-wall, and thought I would share my favorite joints with you, along with what makes them so unique and special to me. 

Brunch at Kitchen Story


Famous for their millionaire bacon and mascarpone-filled, deep-fried French toast, Kitchen Story is the place to go for all you sweet toothed foodies like myself! But fair warning: It may leave you with a serious case of sugar shock and a food coma. Proceed with caution.





Flatbread at The Vestry 

Located in the sunny, hipster, foodie mecca that is the Mission district, The Vestry has seating (inside a chapel!) as well as outdoor seating. They specialize in artisan flatbreads like the bacon & apple dish you see below. As a pizza fiend, I’ve had my fair share of pizzas over the years, and this one definitely takes the cake.




Unique Plates at Frances

With a Michelin star on its resume, it’s no wonder that Frances continues to amaze its diners with impossibly unique dishes like the squid ink tagliatelle below. Come here for a romantic date night, then head to the nearby Castro Theater for some great entertainment!




Southern Cookin’ at Hard Knox 

Get your chicken ‘n waffle fix at the Hard Knox, and bring your appetite! Instead of bread, diners start with a scrumptious platter of cornbread muffins. Plates here are generously portioned, and the staff is incredibly friendly. Choose from southern comfort entrees like jumbalaya rice, fried catfish and country fried steak – each of which comes with two huge sides of your choosing. This is really rare in SF, which is usually so health conscious. But sometimes you just need some comfort food!



Deviled Eggs and Poutine at Jasper’s Corner Tap and Kitchen

Conveniently located near Union Square, Jasper’s Corner Tap and Kitchen goes above and beyond when it comes to devilled eggs and poutine. They have a huge selection to choose from, and the presentation is utterly Pinterest-worthy. And the best part? Everything tastes as good as it looks!



And there you have it! There are a thousand other incredible restaurants in the city, like State Bird, Per Diem, and The Indian Oven, but these are some great places to start. I love restaurants with something special or different to offer, and these all encompass that quality in their own ways. I hope you find them as delicious as I do!

  5. I love Il Pollaio on Columbus in Little Italy - Half roast chicken daily special with fries and salad, and bread of course - VERY reasonably priced - always busy, not many tables, and constant stream of takeaway visitors.... http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Restaurant_Review-g60713-d379129-Reviews-Il_Pollaio-San_Francisco_California.html
