From classic family recipes to cutting-edge cuisine, San Francisco boasts some of the best eateries in the country. Restaurateurs here are committed to creating menus to please every palate. The newest establishments to hit the San Francisco Bay Area culinary scene are no exception. Here are some of the most anticipated San Francisco restaurant openings slated for fall.
Nightbird | 330 Gough Street
Hayes Valley will soon be welcoming Kim Alter’s new 40-seat restaurant, Nightbird. Her ingredient-driven, multi-course menu will change on a weekly basis so your taste buds never get bored. Preview dishes included duck served with smoky greens and spot prawns paired with squash. An intimate bar called The Linden Room will also be housed inside Nightbird—it only seats seven.
The Hunted | 445 Harriet Street
Carnivores, rejoice! Erik Sun’s whole-animal eatery will soon be opening in SoMa. This isn’t Sun’s first restaurant venture—he’s known in Los Angeles for cooking elaborate meals out of fish and game he’s killed himself. The name of his latest venture suggests he just might do the same here. Even the toughest game meat should melt in your mouth thanks to Sun’s long braise times. Fine seafood like lobster and sea urchin is also rumored to be on the menu. Housed in a 6,000 square foot warehouse, the space features an open kitchen and large tables.
The Manufactury | 2900 18th Street
Construction should soon be finished on the 5,600-square-foot space that will feature a walk-in café and bar, coffee kiosk, pantry and ice cream shop. Owned by the same team that brought Tartine Bakery to the San Francisco Bay Area, The Manufactury will also house an enormous heuft oven for Tartine’s bread production. It’s the perfect place to grab breakfast on the go.
