Fish & Farm
Drawing inspiration from the natural beauty and locally tended produce in the 100 or so miles surrounding San Francisco, Fish & Farm American restaurant-whose motto could be summed up as “local, seasonal, sustainable”-isn’t exactly a new concept in terms of restaurants in San Francisco. Still, there’s something about the diminutive eatery that feels fresh. The cozy dining room is conducive to dates (if you don’t mind the noise), and dinners-loaded with farm-fresh ingredients that feel almost homely-are totally approachable and perfectly prepared. Start with grilled Monterey Bay sardines and save room for inventive seafood entrees-the pan-seared corvina with sweetbread and mushroom ravioli is worth a detour.
