Californian | Santa Rosa, Wine Country

This was our second food and wine adventure at St. Francis, first time with their new chef. In a word, it was FABULOUS! Each of the 5 courses was designed around the selected wine for that course, not the other way around. The menu was inventive, fresh and beautifully presented. The wines were also delicious. Reservations are required and they are closed Tues/Wednesdays but this is a highlight to any wine country experience. More

Wow! If there was a way to give more than 5 stars for any of these categories, we would! The food was divine, the service was outstanding (the friendliest staff at a Michelin Star restaurant that we have encountered!) and the ambiance was perfect. It’s too pricy to go often, although we can’t wait to go back for another special occasion! More

Middle Eastern | Nob Hill, San Francisco

Chef Mohamed has been cooking professionally in San Francisco since 2004. In 2009 he introduced SF's first-ever Yemeni Restaurant to help diners discover the food of his country. He uses homemade spices, with herbs grown and dried by his family in Yemen and flown in for use in Yemeni's kitchen. So the flavors in Yemeni's marinades are unlike any you will taste outside of Yemen because they are unique to the family tradition. For lovers of exotic cuisine, you can enjoy Vegetarian or Meat Saltah, Lamb or Chicken Mandi, Lamb or Veal Haneed, Ghallaba Beef or Chicken, Lamb or Chicken Agda, and Lamb Liver. There are many options for vegetarians including lentil soup, and Arabian mezaa (falafel, baba ganoush, hummus, tabbouleh). A traditional Yemeni breakfast is also served throughout the day! Beverages include traditional Yemeni milk tea or traditional red tea, Vemto pomegranate drink or fresh juices. More

Discover San Francisco

Farm-to-table is everywhere now, but it was here first. Just north of San Francisco, the values-forward counties of Marin and Sonoma offer an abundance of sustainably sourced produce. Of course, there’s more to eat in the Bay than leafy greens alone—don’t miss the mainstays like Cioppino (a seafood stew best eaten with thick-cut garlic bread), Mission-style burritos, local oysters and Neapolitan pizza where pizzerias around town war for the ultimate version. The city has long been home to distinct international flavors, so for authentic dim sum, Chinatown tops the charts. The Mission is ablaze with longstanding taquerias, steakhouses and a new wave of artisanal bakeries and coffee houses. And the Fisherman’s Wharf, while touristy, is the spot for Bay caught seafood. From there, we recommend walking to Crissy Field for Golden Gate Bridge gazing and sparkling sunshine.
