Not far from the club corridor around 11th and Folsom Streets, Oola one of those American restaurants in San Francisco that has courted the late-night club set with some success (the kitchen stays open until 1am). The setting works in elements of polished concrete, exposed brick, and steel for a loft-style industrial modernism. On the menu, you’ll find hearty dishes with exotic touches, such as a tomato tart with goat cheese and onion jam and baby back ribs with cilantro, ginger, and soy glaze. Come late night for elegant sustenance with a fun crowd. Ideally, drop in for dinner around 10pm. Chef Ola Fendert, who hails from Stockholm, serves his French-influenced take on local bounty late into the night, but Oola starts buzzing with a young, stylish crowd around 10pm. Dig into duck confit, savoury Mission fig tart, and tomato soup with grilled gruyere sandwich. The narrow, low-lit space is punctuated with reclaimed wood and Israeli stone, resulting in an atmosphere that is both sultry and edgy. The bar is populated with SoMa workers in for truffle fries and a cocktail, hoping to get snagged on the way home. Fendert’s famous souffles are only available on Mondays.
