The Castro Gets a Bouncing Baby Le Marais Bakery

Problem: you’re craving a Croque Madame or some macarons but don’t want to go to the Marina or Fisherman’s Wharf. Solution: the new Castro location of Le Marais, which also has beer on tap. If you live near the Marina or Fisherman’s Wharf, you know... reverse all that.

GOOD AFTERNOON

Update Your Lunch Playbook Accordingly

One cannot survive on burritos alone. Okay, one probably can. Still, maybe consider shaking up your lunch game at Tahini, the new Mission spot for falafel, shawarma, kebabs and fries, all made to order for your grab-and-go delight. Which we assume is a thing.

Now open, Tahini, 2859 Mission St (between 24th and 25th), 415-800-8681

First, You Walk Through an Unmarked Door. Then, You Drink.

First, You Walk Through an Unmarked Door. Then, You Drink.

A while back, we promised you a clandestine Tron-themed bar from Coin-Op. That day has come, and there are two things you should know: 1) It’s behind an unmarked door and you’ll be given instructions on how to enter once you’ve made a reservation. 2) You may now carry on.

We Trust You’ll Know What to Do With This New Bar

There’s a new bar Called Miller’s Rest in the former Fly Bar space. It’s where you go for comfort food like Parmesan polenta sticks and flatbreads. It’s where you go for smoked maple Old Fashioneds with bacon garnishes. It’s where you go other times and for other things.

The Week of Negronis Is Once Again Upon Us

Negroni Week kicks off its fifth year on Monday, and that means more bars, more restaurants and more specials like:

—Negroni ice cream pie at Tartine Manufactory
—Frozen negronis at Laszlo
—Breakfast for Two (read: Cocoa Puffs-infused negronis served in cereal bowls) at Wildhawk
—Probably another round of breakfast negronis at Wildhawk

Joe Starkey is the tallest person in the room 90% of the time. He enjoys liquors that aren’t smoky, dive bars that are, and has a vague dread that someone, somewhere might be having more fun than him.
