Eat this Now: Arizmendi Bakery's Vegan Foccacia

By no stretch of the imagination would I ever be considered anything close to a vegan. A more apt self-description would be a meat-eating, estranged sister of a vegan. But every once in a while, I stumble upon something…

Sous Chefs Take Center Stage at Marla Bakery's "Sousdays"

5 Frozen Cocktails for Summer

When I see a frozen cocktail on a menu, I have instant tunnel vision, becoming blind to all other artfully crafted drinks. A perfectly balanced Negroni made with housemade vermouth? Don't care. But a refreshing blended beverage dispensed from a machine? Don't…

Find For $5: Herbed Garlic Knots at Presidio Pizza Company

Admittedly, nothing about this makes much sense. The Presidio Pizza Company is located at Pine and Divisadero, a location that cannot, by even the furthest stretch of the imagination, be considered the Presidio. And while it does indeed sell pizza…
