Best Brownie 

LuLu Petite

The culinary riches offered along the Ferry Building's skylit nave are staggering in their quality and variety: gelato from Ciao Bella, cheeses from Cowgirl Creamery, caviar from Tsar Nicoulai, on and on and on. It's almost unfair that the best freakin' brownie in San Francisco is available here as well. LuLu Petite, a sidewalk cafe–like offshoot of the French restaurant South of Market, bakes a brownie that's moist, dense, and devilishly good au naturel — the chocolate has the richness and depth of black truffles or a great bourbon. But then the kitchen gilds the lily with a sheen of fig-cherry jam, discs of smooth white chocolate, and, if you wish, a light drizzle of caramel. Taken together, it's a life-enhancing experience. Luckily there are benches outside, on which the unwary snacker can sit and breathe in the salt air, recover her equilibrium, and, perhaps, move on.
