    Mezes

    2373 Chestnut San Francisco CA 94123
    This delightful place specializes in what we all like best in many Mediterranean restaurants: mezes, or appetizers, here served in "small plates" that are actually quite generous. Cover the table with plates of dolmas, taramosalata, tzatziki, unusual zucchini cakes, sausages, fried smelts, prawns - the list is long, and you'll More

    2362 Market San Francisco CA 94114
    There's an Italian spin to the menu at this reasonably priced, urbane fish house in the Castro. The bar, backed with an impossibly high shelf of glittering bottles, is friendly and busy, and the popular weekend brunch features a straightforward menu that's neither particularly Italianate nor fishy.

    215 Lincoln San Francisco CA 94129
    On a sunny, clear day, there's no lovelier spot for lunch than the glassed-in, red-umbrella'd outside space that gives La Terrasse its name, overlooking the bay and the Golden Gate Bridge.

    CLOSED until June 2011. Chef/owner Leland Jung first nurtured a love of cooking while watching his father make dim sum dumplings at his Chinese restaurant.
