New SF Eatieries
Yummy new eating establishments are always popping up and we found a few we love.
Vegan food that even carnivores will like can be ordered and devoured at new Union Street eatery – Wildseed. The restaurateurs encourage you to eat in a way to help our planet – meaning eating plant based food that is incredibly delicious. Some favorites are the beet and orange pate with grilled sourdough, ceviche of king trumpet mushrooms, Mexican corn cakes, and warm chocolate cake Wildseed is filled with plants and some of the old 1980’s gold and brass (everything old is new again!) and the result is warmth and comfort., Superb cocktails abound so try the Holy Basil – you won’t be disappointed.

And now for the carnivores – Verjus is a wine bar, bistro, and bottle shop from the restaurateur duo behind three-Michelin star Quince and the oh-so popular Cotogna . It is a Paris Bistro -meets-San Francisco-via-Downtown Manhattan wine bar that manages to represent the best aspects of both casual and fine dining. It’s a little tricky finding a seat but when you do you’ll be able to enjoy natural wines, an ever-changing menu of house-made charcuterie, cheese, as well as larger plates like a pithivier (a glazed puff pastry filled with varying types of shredded meat) and steak slathered in butter before popping into the retail shop before you leave to grab a bottle or two to enjoy later. Vegans may want to skip the eats and drink the wine! Verjuscave.com
