Bay Area Restaurant Hopping
There’s a new craze in the Bay Area, and it’s called restaurant hopping. Particularly popular for first dates, anniversaries, birthdays, or just to switch things up, San Francisco, Oakland, Berkeley, and other area residents have been opting to dine at a handful of restaurants… all in one night. No, this isn’t about binge eating. Rather, it’s a tapas-style approach. It’s a way to make an evening of some of the best dining in the world. Also, if you prefer Asian fusion cuisine, for example, but your sweetheart enjoys the finest of French food, this is the ideal way to ensure that everyone is happy.
You might try Absinthe Brasserie at 398 Hayes Street at Gough in San Francisco. They’re known for their savory raw oysters. Next, you might share the halibut ceviche with cherries, white soy, and seaweed at Dirty Habit on 12 Fourth Street between Mission and Market. Or, if seafood isn’t your style, the Canelo Bistro & Wine Bar offers some of the area’s best in Spanish tapas. The grilled dandelion green and gem salad, the patatas bravas with Szechuan peppercorn and toasted pumpkin seeds, and the hand carved aged jamon Ibérico are a few of the regular’s favorites. Have you tried Bisou Bistronomy? From the escargots en croute to the Kobe steak tartare, it’s difficult to go wrong.
In a place as wonderful as the Bay Area, even diners with food restrictions can make a night of restaurant touring. For the vegetarian foodie, Greens Restaurant on Marina Boulevard offers summer squash pupusas, mesquite grilled brochettes, fire roasted poblano chili, and much more. Souley Vegan, Encuentro, and Herbivore the Earthy Grill are other veggie delights. La Meditteranee, which has a small handful of locations, and Skool, located at 1725 Alameda Street, are ideal for the gluten intolerant.
The lists go on and on… and we haven’t even discussed dessert!
