3 San Francisco Restaurants You Can’t Miss

3 san francisco restaurants cant miss anchor and hope
We were in the City by the Bay the weekend for last, and we stopped by three restaurants that you must check out the next time you find yourself in the Bay Area. They’re all owned by Doug Washington, Mitchell Rosenthal and Steven Rosenthal: Anchor & Hope, Salt House and Town Hall.

Anchor & Hope
This is by no doubt one of the best restaurants in San Francisco. After all, the city is right on the San Francisco Bay. Fresh seafood is brought in everyday. When unsure, start with the raw bar and try some oysters, mussels and shrimp before going for something a little more ambitious, such as the Rockfish with saffron rice, tomato, kalamata olives, fennel and calamari stew.
83 Minna Street
San Francisco
415-501-9100

Salt House
We tried one the most amazing cocktails we’ve  tasted at the Salt House: the Tijuana Beehive. It has Pueblo Viejo reposado tequila, meyer lemon, dimmi liqueur, jalepeño honey and orange flower water. It’s better than any margarita we’ve ever had. Try entrées like the Coleman Ranch pork loin with bacon maple crust, artichokes, calcot onions and rhubarb marmalade, or their deconstructed take on the traditional Salade Niçoise.
545 Mission Street
San Francisco
425-543-8900

Town Hall
Begin your meal with Faith’s warm ham and cheese toast, poached egg, jalapeño cream before going for the Étouffée, flounder with Gulf prawns, okra and tomatillo or the buttermilk fried Mary’s chicken with broccoli, smashed potatoes and bacon gravy. Top your meal off with one of their sinfully satisfying desserts, like the Butterscotch and Chocolate Pot de Crème topped with buttercrunch, or the Rhubarb-Almond Crumb Cake with strawberry ice cream, rhubarb compote.
