Best Restaurants for a Crowd: San Francisco
Paolo Lucchesi of Eater SF suggests:
When the new Academy of Sciences museum opens this fall, it’ll have a multi-cultural, kid-friendly, educational restaurant from Charles Phan (The Slanted Door) and Loretta Keller (Coco500) that would be perfect for Team Brangelina.
Until then, the best bet might be Spruce. Chef Mark Sullivan’s menu epitomizes the seasonal cuisine that San Francisco loves, yet is accessible enough for the kids. The converted garage’s flashy design (cathedral ceilings, fancy skylights) should please the architecture lover in Brad, and the entire clan could escape the paparazzi in one of the private dining areas.
San Francisco’s New Tastemakers
Shelley Lindgren (wine director and co-owner of the standout Southern Italian restaurant A16) and her husband Greg (mixologist and co-owner of three of San Francisco’s best, most inventive bars) share what they love to eat and drink in their city.
San Francisco Inspirations
Some of the best shops and restaurants at San Francisco’s dazzling Ferry Building Marketplace share excellent, eclectic recipes—from tenderloin steaks with sake-mirin butter to cocoa crème fraîche cupcakes.
