Roka Akor

Every now and then, I get really excited about a new restaurant opening in SF and Roka Akor was definitely one of them. I was able to try it out on its third night of opening and I can say that the anticipation was well worth it. In fact, my expectations were blown away. I had expected a few glitches since...

Bossa Nova

Coisas bonitas, povos felizes, alimento delicioso. (Beautiful things, happy people, delicious food.) This is what you will find an abundance of at Bossa Nova. Bossa Nova combines intimacy, vivacity, and flavor - it exudes Brazilian charm. I hadn't been here in a while, and it was the first time I...

Chez Papa Resto

J'adore Chez Papa. So sexy, so cozy, so yummy. Mmmm!!! While we had a large group of 12 dining here, it's also a great date spot. The cocktails are incredible, the food is scrumptious and the service is top notch. It's all about fresh ingredients here. My halibut came with fern fiddleheads - amazing!...

Foreign Cinema

One of the most fabulous places in the city to have brunch. Sunlight pours into the space, and even if you are dining inside, you still feel like you're out in the courtyard. Mimosas are definitely in order, and although they aren't bottomless, just indulge and order 2 or 3 rounds. The famous organic...

Tradition

The guys from Burbon and Branch really hit a home run each time they open up a new bar in the city. Tradition is probably my favorite of all the locations because it's intimate and spacious at the same time. It's not as loud and crowded as Rickhouse or Local Edition and you don't have to make a reservation...

Gitane Restaurant & Bar

Gitane is tres sexy in every way. The ambiance, the staff, the food and the cocktails are all incredibly sexy. It's the quintessential date spot in SF. While I didn't bring a guy here, I did bring another cute date - my gal pal - and we were both impressed upon entering the restaurant tucked away on Claude...

Lolinda

Amazing remodel of the former Medjool space. A sexy dimly lit Argentinian steakhouse now, Lolinda serves up tasty tapas and excellent craft cocktails. The rooftop is still under renovation, but it should be ready and popping off during the warmer months. Prices are very reasonable; $9 for two bone...

Twenty Five Lusk

25 Lusk epitomizes industrial chic. A place you'd more likely find in NYC than SF, it's the perfect spot to hit if hip and sexy is what you're in the mood for. The exposed beams and brick walls of this massive former meatpacking space are complimented by the futuristic floating metal firepits and sleek...

La Mar Cebicheria Peruana

One of the best restaurants in SF - certainly the best Peruvian. Definitely do the cebiche sampler, the octopus skewers (I've never had octopus prepared so well), lomo saltado and lamb shank. Actually, do everything and anything, because everyone in our party of 14 absolutely loved what they got....

Hakkasan

Hakkasan is hot! A sexy and modern upscale Chinese restaurant that's great for dates or a fabulous girls' night out. The large bar area is a perfect meeting spot to grab some fancy cocktails and dim sum.
