Word on the Street

“The Best Late Night Eats In San Francisco; Beretta is in a great location on a Mission corner, strong cocktails, and a good crowd make this an ideal late-night dinner location. We usually skip the pizzas due to their sub-par crusts and go with the small plates instead. Or four orders of the burrata with walnut bread and truffle-honey. Happy hour went a little long (5 hours too long) and you need to eat something. The downtown Delarosa is open until midnight on weekends, and if you’re headed home to the Marina, that location is open until 1am. Get some meatballs and a pizza, and call us in the morning.”

“Where To Eat And Drink In The Mission; Beretta is loud, the cocktails are great, and the burrata with honey on walnut bread is a perfect food. There will be a wait, but you and your friends will have a very good time if you stick it out. We’re partial to the small plates over the pizza here. Bring carnivorous people to eat delicious Argentinian steaks at Lolinda. The high ceilings and pretty bar give it an edge over a lot of the other restaurants around, and the cocktails are great, too.”

You’ll find some of the city’s finest al fresco dining above Lolinda, the lively Argentine steakhouse in the Mission District. The El Techo rooftop bar features Latin-inspired street food and strong rum cocktails as you take in the skyline views.
