Go List: San Francisco
Chef Dennis Leary's 20-seat diner Canteen seems practically airy compared to the Sentinel, his new downtown take-out counter. There aren't any seats, but crowds make the stop in the morning for warm slices of coffee cake, then return at lunchtime for sandwiches. We loved: Leary's killer version of a Reubenhouse-corned beef on flatbread with Gruyère, caramelized onions and Russian dressing.
