My Favorite SF Restaurants

The only criteria I'm using is that a food or drink experience I had was good enough to tell people about. By no stretch of the imagination are these recommendations for healthy eating (though some of them may lean toward the healthier side).

    I thought all SF Mexican food was a disappointment until I found Nopalito (I'm from SoCal and part Mexican). Amazing sit down Mexican food. Carnitas and mole should not be missed.

    Best sushi I've had outside of Tokyo. Very legit though, so expect to order lots of fish you've never heard of and you'll be disappointed if you're looking for rolls.

    Probably my favorite seafood restaurant in the city. The crudo plates are fabulous, as is the seafood chowder. Come to think of it, it's hard to go wrong.

    I don't often eat pasta, but when I do I prefer Locanda.

    Chef Daniel Patterson is a culinary genius. The food is very intellectual, but not in a way that detracts from the taste. Very fancy, so expect to drop some cash for this special occasion spot.

    By far the best Indian food in the city. It's South Indian style, so don't expect tandoori. But the ingredients are all very high quality and the dishes are seasonal and consistently awesome. Great drinks too.

    Really high-end Morrocan food that brings a tear to the eye. Definitely worth the trip to the outer Richmond.

    Consistently amazing food, even the chicken will blow your mind. Fabulous cocktails (some of my favorites in the city).

    My favorite casual restaurant by far. They cook exactly like I would if I had all day to prepare dinner. Oh, and on Tuesday nights (and any lunch/brunch), they have the best burger in the city.

    One of the most innovative restaurants I've ever tried. Michelin caliber food on dim sum style carts. The type of place that makes me want to never leave SF.

    Absolutely delicious Korean/Japanese fusion. It's casual and there's nothing bad on the menu.
