Perbacco: Chic and upscale Italian spot with amazing homemade pasta dishes.
Bi-Rite Market: Stop here on your way to Dolores Park to grab some food for a picnic. Great selection of prepared food as well as produce and other grocery items.
Bi-Rite Creamery: Across the street from the Market, come by here after your picnic for amazing ice cream and other treats.
Roka Akor: Hands down the best Japanese food I've ever had. Dishes from the robata grill are a must. This one is a bit of a splurge but worth every penny.
Ozumo: Another great contemporary Japanese place with a robata grill and creative sushi options.
Blue Bottle: Blue Bottle really knows their coffee. With their flagship outpost in Brooklyn, NY, and several other locations in the US (Oakland, Los Angeles, Palo Alto and around the globe in Tokyo), Blue Bottle puts a huge effort into coffee preparation. They focus on single-origin beans and are considered to be a major player in the new wave of artisanal coffee.
Areas to Visit: Haight + Ashbury (check out Amoeba Music - the largest independent record store in the world), Lower Haight, Valencia Street, Fillmore Street, Mission, Castro, Alamo Square Park, Golden Gate Park.
March: March is a great gallery-like home goods and culinary store. Even if you can't afford to shop here which I most certainly can not, it is still a beautiful space for perusing around.
Day Trip: Napa Valley
Napa is the perfect combination of luxury and country, and who wouldn't want to be surrounded by nature and vineyards. It's so beautiful and there are a billion wineries worth visiting. If you are a Parent Trap fan, definitely make an appointment to see the Staglin Family Vineyard. Check out Beringer which is also quite lovely with a great wine selection. There are also so many great restaurant options, sit on the patio of Tra Vigne, a delicious Italian spot. You could also just grab some takeaway food from Dean & DeLuca to have as a car snack between tastings.
