I took an extra 2 days off work, so this past holiday weekend was a glorious five day weekend! I hosted my good friend from college and we spent our days eating, touristing, shopping, eating, walking, lounging, and eating. I think the best way to get to know a new place is to eat the incredible food that city has to offer – just stay away from the touristy spots! My rule of thumb – the better the view, the worse the food. Here’s a recap of some of our bites and sights from the weekend. Above, our savory breakfast pastries and lovely lattes at Craftsman & Wolves.
The delectable fried chicken at Tyler Florence’s Wayfare Tavern.
Refueling during shopping in Hayes Valley with some Smitten Ice Cream. They prep each scoop individually with liquid nitrogen!
Painted Ladies, the most iconic row of Victorian houses in San Francisco. They were featured in the opening credits of Full House!
A very rich chocolate mousse at Delfina.
This doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface on the places we went and the amount of food we ate, but these were definitely the highlights! What are your favorite spots to take visitors in your city?
