    Oh, this? It's just our favorite new bar by the Caltrain with playable Super Nintendo, a Frito pie served in a Fritos bag, and a dedicated shots-only bar. Yep. That's it.

    The bar menu is a must (homemade Cheetos!), but that barely scratches the surface of the food at this Top Chef-helmed restaurant in the TL, which's also doing a yolk beignet with Wagyu beef, lardo, and trotter sauce, and fried chicken with kimchi powder.

    28 TVs, actual, functioning bleachers for big games, and friggin' porcelain bathtubs they'll pull up to your booth and fill with ice and 24-packs. This sports bar is already shaping up to be one of the city's best.

    This American comfort-foodery is doling out serious burgs in Union Square. They're even taking it as far as putting potato chips in a melted cheese-cheeseburger, to bring back fond memories of childhood.

    This Financial District beer joint is one of the oldest in SF, but after a refurbishing, it's been able to keep all of its classic qualities while adding pleasing aspects like a drop-down projector screen, an improved food menu, and rentable lockers.

    Dirty Habit in Union Square is the perfect spot to kick back on a patio (with a casual fire pit and fountain) and take in the city lights.
