The Food Lover’s Guide to Under the Radar San Francisco Treats


In addition to its status as a global hub for technology and art — as well as its stunning natural beauty — captivating San Francisco is also a melting pot of flavors from around the world. Home to many vibrant and unique neighborhoods with distinct cultural roots, a diverse community of immigrant chefs and all kinds of award-winning culinary concepts, you’ll quickly find there’s plenty to make your mouth water here. We’ve rounded up some of our top picks for dining out in San Francisco during your next stay.

Whether you’re visiting for a business meeting or a weekend getaway, Club Quarters San Francisco serves as the perfect place to explore the city from.

Over the years, San Francisco has nurtured a global food scene that’s out of this world. You’ll find it all here — mouthwatering soup dumplings, tantalizing Ligurian-style focaccia, the best burritos north of the border…the list goes on and on. There’s so much to try and it’s all so good you’ll be hard-pressed to save room for all the incredible options waiting just a quick stroll or car-ride away from your hotel. If you’re only in town for a few days, having a game plan is key — as is having a few top picks for every kind of craving.

One of the closest places to grab a delicious bite is Fish & Farm, adjacent to Club Quarters San Francisco and connecting through the hotel’s lobby. This local favorite supports the area’s farmers and fishermen by sourcing most of its meat, fish and produce from within a 100-mile radius. The menu features a great range of new American classics and global delights, including housemade pastas, Berkshire pork and more. And the wine list is chock-full of selections from California and small, biodynamic producers.

Head two miles west of Club Quarters San Francisco to Japantown for steaming, hits-the-spot ramen that pairs beautifully with San Francisco’s misty afternoons and cool evenings. Cozy Marufuku Ramen and Waraku Ramen are fan favorites. You’ll also find lots of great sushi counters manned by seasoned chefs that infuse each role with expert care and precision, like SaSa, which serves up an innovative dining experience based on traditional kaiseki cooking techniques. Kissako Tea is also a heavy-hitter — established a decade ago, it’s one of the best places to visit for made-to-order onigiri and sweet mochi.

You can choose from a slew of Michelin-starred restaurants in trendy Jackson Square, a five-minute walk away from the hotel. There’s the three-starred Quince, a fine-dining go-to for special occasions where you can choose from multiple tasting experiences and kick off your meal with caviar. And don’t forget the two-starred COI, helmed by acclaimed chef Daniel Patterson and known for its bold, contemporary tasting menus.

If you’re craving the perfect pizza pie, you can savor heaven by the slice at any of the pizza joints in North Beach. Piccolo Forno is a quaint and cozy trattoria that serves up a head-spinning selection of pizzas in addition to homestyle pasta dishes and traditional Italian entrees. And Tony’s Pizza Napolitana turns pizza-making into an art form — they serve 12 styles of it, cooked at seven different temperatures. They’ve also been mentioned by Eater, Thrillist and Infatuation for their great food.

For authentic Mexican eats, you can’t beat the options you’ll find in the Mission District, just three miles away from Club Quarters. This area boasts a slew of top taco spots, including trendy Tacolicious, late-night favorite Taqueria Cancun, the iconic El Farolito, and so much more. No matter what you’re in the mood for during your stay, San Francisco never disappoints in the flavor department.
