Delfina

Delfina 3621 18th St. San Francisco, CA 94110 Yelp I think Triple F mentioned Delfina to me a long time ago, so it’s not really the new kid on the block per se.  The place is known for their simple Italian fare, namely pastas and pizzas.  Sometimes, great restaurants can lose their luster just by…

Zuni Cafe

Zuni Cafe 1658 Market St. San Francisco, CA 94102 Yelp Besides Tartine, Zuni Cafe is  another one of those must-try San Francisco places, that have been on my bucket list for some time now.  It’s most well know for its roasted chicken.  How can roasted chicken be that good?  I don’t know, so I’ve always…

Alexander’s Steakhouse

Alexander’s Steakhouse 448 Brannan Street San Francisco, CA 94107 Yelp I’m not a huge steak lover, but Alexander’s Steakhouse has been on my radar for a long time.  When a location popped up in Pasadena, I was pretty excited.  However, the reviews weren’t very strong and I didn’t want to pay a lot of money…

Tartine Bakery

Tartine Bakery 600 Guerrero St. San Francisco, CA 94110 Yelp When visitors come to LA, sometimes I roll my eyes at the list of places they plan to dine at.  Pink’s Hot Dog, Langer’s, The Original Pantry, The Stinking Rose, and the list goes on and on.  There’s something to be said about knowing a city…

Zushi Puzzle

Zushi Puzzle 1910 Lombard St. San Franciscos, CA 94123 Yelp Triple F has raved about Zushi Puzzle for years now.  She loved the place so much, she became a regular.  We were seated at the bar and chef/owner Roger was getting chummy with Triple F, like they’re just the best of old friends.  I exaggerate, but…

Koi Palace

Frances

Frances 3870 17th St San Francisco, CA 94114 frances-sf.com Yelp I was about ready to burst with my last and final meal for my SF summer trip.  Luckily, I pulled through and did not disappoint my fellow dining companions Triple F and Running Man, nor my dedicated readers/followers.  I always take one for the team….

Lazy Bear
