Restaurant Details

The years have been kind to Farallon, whose over-the-top under-the-sea décor, fresh and wacky in 1997, now feels like a classic. The vaulted ceilings and huge sea-urchin light fixtures at this Union Square restaurant are almost worth the (hefty) price of admission alone. Chef/owner Mark Franz calls his seafood-heavy menu "coastal cuisine": It remains impeccably fresh and seasonal (no menu in town turns over more rapidly than this one) and beautifully conceived and prepared (Franz treats his numerically fewer meat dishes with equal respect and skill). Pastry chef Emily Luchetti's desserts evolve more slowly, but are admirable successors to the delights that come before. One of San Francisco's best restaurants.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
