Your morning coffee shop. Your happy hour watering hole. An arsenal of restaurants for your three squares.
Today we’d like to turn your attention to a place that’s more like the Swiss Army knife...
Welcome Radish, a new café/eatery/bar bringing a little bit of Southern flair to the Mission from 8am to 11pm, opening Thursday on 19th Street.
Given that it’s just two blocks from Dolores Park and set on a corner in the sunniest part of the city, Radish feels like the type of spot you’d drop by before or after a leisurely day.
When it’s warm out, you’ll want one of the sidewalk tables and some Radlers (a German-inspired half lager, half sparkling lemonade drink). Otherwise, the long, slightly curved bar is a safe bet. Overlooking an oversized painting of flamingos, it’s a good starting point to wake up to house-roasted, single-source Brazilian coffee, or opt for one of 10 craft brews on tap—like the limited Bruery ’09 cellar barley wine and Eel River Jamaica Red.
Depending on when you go, you could get steak and eggs as well as donuts or french toast à la mode (right: topped with ice cream) in the morning, po’boys at lunch and shareable small plates at night like shrimp corn dogs and Cats and Puppies—that’s fried catfish and hush puppies.
In case you weren’t sure...
