Academy Café

55 Music Concourse Dr. , Caifornia Academy of Sciences
San Francisco , CA , United States
(415) 876-6121

The wildly popular dining venue at the new California Academy of Sciences, in Golden Gate Park, is one of the city’s latest shrines to sustainable agriculture, courtesy of local food heroes and good-pal chefs Charles Phan (Slanted Door) and Loretta Keller (Coco500). Where else can you load up your tray with juicy Niman Ranch pork carnitas tacos, Phan’s famously feathery Vietnamese steamed chicken buns, and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches updated with organic almond butter and house-made jam? Don’t fret the $25 museum admission to lunch here: surely you want to see the eco-sleek sci-fi setting that starchitect Renzo Piano has created for the designer butterflies and lizards.
