1300 On Fillmore
In the heart of the city’s jazz district, 1300 Fillmore is luring a diverse cross- section of hungry locals to its jazz inspired addition to the list of San Francisco restaurants, with the scent of fried (organic) chicken and melt-in-your-mouth maple-braised short ribs. White-cheddar mac ‘n’ cheese, truffled mashers, honey corn biscuits, and creamy grits sing backup for the meaty headliners. But while the food may remind you of grandma, the ambiance is more likely to evoke images of iconic jazz cats in fedoras and three-piece suits. The walls are covered with photographs of the neighbourhood’s heyday, and strategically placed spotlights maintain a dusky, sexy vibe. 1300 Fillmore is an ideal dinner spot for those catching a show next door at Yoshi’s or down the street at Fillmore Auditorium.
