    Red Crawfish

    611 Larkin San Francisco CA 94109
    Red Crawfish is the city's best Vietnamese-Cajun crawfish house, a West Coast restaurant trend more viral than an OK Go video. During the day, it sells only Asian fare, but at night, the room becomes a garlic-and-chile-perfumed steambath, packed with tables covered in butcher paper and discarded shells. Crawfish, shrimp, More

    Taste of Formosa

    2428 Clement San Francisco CA 94121
    Though it also does Chinese-American takeout and more substantial entrées - both of which you should avoid - Taste of Formosa's strength is its dolled-up versions of Taiwanese street snacks and xiao chi, or "small eats."

    The latest deli spot from sandwich genius Adam Mesnick, the man behind SOMA's Deli Board, focuses on cold, Philly-style hoagies (different from a submarine because it uses soft, flat rolls instead of crusty Italian rolls).

    Its name celebrates the repeal of Prohibition, so it's no surprise that 21st Amendment's brewpub is the opposite of a secret subterranean speakeasy: with its large windows, bright wood accents, and open floorplan, this South Park restaurant and microbrewery couldn't be more forthright about its upscale, beer-loving raison d'être.
