Range is one of those San Francisco restaurants that is sunny, inviting and sophisticated situated in a great location with a hip mood that appeals both day and night. Light walls, diner stools around the bar, wood accents, and plenty of original artwork and photography set a comfortable, uplifting ambiance conducive to conversation. But don’t be fooled by this restaurants casual vibe: Focused and top-notch, the food garnered a coveted star in the 2007 Michelin Guide. From the kitchen, expect seasonal ingredients and dishes such as slow-cooked halibut, coffee-rubbed pork shoulder, and marinated fennel with peaches and chèvre. In addition to wine, Range pours a lovely white sangria and an extensive list of vodkas and tequilas.
