San Francisco’s biannual restaurant week is here! The land of foodies is happy to serve its best to the hungry, the budgety…well, anyone who immerses in SF’s progressive dining scene. From June 1-15, hipsters cannot complain about the preppy, obnoxious Marina kids shoveling into their neighborhoods, while heading to North Beach will not be the only place in the city serving indulge-worthy pastas.

With so many restaurants to choose from, where should you go? (Unfortunately, not every restaurant is worth the hype.) Lucky for you, many of us on #TeamJST were born and raised in the bay. Here’s our local breakdown to keep things real simple. Top fives for lunch and top fives for dinner. Here we go:


Absinthe Brasserie & Bar

Neighborhood: Hayes Valley. 398 Hayes Street San Francisco 94102 (map, website)

The lowdown: Get an oyster shooter to go along with your meal. This place makes a killer combo!
