Perbacco San Francisco exterior decor

One of our favorite Italian restaurants in San Francisco. Perbacco is a popular Italian restaurant in San Francisco’s financial district that opened in 2006. We had been to their sister restaurant next door Barbacco recently, and felt it was high time that we came back to Perbacco. Chef Staffan Terje focuses on Piemontese, Ligurian, and Venetian regional Italian dishes. “Perbacco” translated is an Italian word to accentuate positive comments.

One of the top restaurants in SF.. Quince is a high end restaurant in San Francisco’s Jackson Square area, near the Financial District run by chef-owner Michael Tusk. He graduated from the Culinary Institute of America, has cooked extensively in Europe, and used to work at Stars, Oliveto, and Chez Panisse.  They serve California cuisine with northern Italian influences as well as Alice Waters inspired freshness. This restaurant focuses on local, organic, seasonal ingredients and moved to the space vacated by Myth, after a six year stint at their cramped location on Pacific Heights.

Taylors Automatic Refresher San Francisco 1

Gott’s Roadside formerly Taylor’s Automatic Refresher is a classic burger joint with 2 locations in the Wine country and one in San Francisco. They were forced to change their name in 2010. We have dined at the San Francisco Ferry Building location and the Napa location next to the Oxbow Market. This place serves burgers, sandwiches, and the like. They have a pretty big beer and wine menu for a burger place. We’ve eaten burgers here several times, which are average, and it was time for a change.
