New Eats in SF
The food scene just keeps escalating, and there aren’t enough days to try all the tasty menus in town. So here are a few more to add to the list – recently opened, so of course, get there early.
Kaiyo on Union Street in Cow Hollow offers truly mouth watering Japanese-inflected Peruvian dishes. Nikkei is the official name of the tasty food and it first came about when Japenese workers went to Peru to build railroads in the 1880’s. Local ingredients are favored and some of the fav menu items are Hokkaido scallops, and Japanese Bluefin tuna. Make sure to arrive early for a spot on the heated patio. www.Kaiyosf.com
Give a huge welcome to this Portuguese fast-casual spot in the Mission. This is your new go-to spot for flame-grilled chicken with a kick. The name of this hot spot means “Pepper Sting”. Tailor the spicy factor to your own taste buds. The tantalizing meals will be complemented by the huge selection of Portuguese wine and beer. Get your spicy on. www.pirapica.com
Fred’s San Francisco at Barney’s
Watch out Neiman Marcus Rotunda, there’s a new lunch spot in town, and although they won’t have the iconic popovers, the menu is mouth watering.
The famous “Mark’s Madison Avenue” chopped salad, (from NYC) the “SF Club” with Dungeness crab, and “Fred’s Spaghetti” with shiitake mushrooms, asparagus, sun-dried tomato, and pesto sauce will have you wishing you tried on that Dolce dress before you ate.
Or you could just splurge on a glass of bubbly and the perfectly crave-able Belgian pommes frites. Fred’s certainly isn’t inexpensive (most dishes hover around $27), but if you’re the kind of person who lunches while shopping or finalizes deals over a fancy club sandwich, then that’s probably not an issue. https://www.barneys.com/store/san-francisco/R-store-256
