The Hottest New Restaurants in San Francisco

The Hottest New Restaurants in San Francisco

Broad Street Oyster Company

Climb to the top of Ghirardelli Square to slurp oysters and crack into fresh Dungeness crab at this Southern California-born seafood restaurant. The San Francisco location is Broad Street’s first expansion up north and the dining room feels like stepping onto an actual boat — with impressive views of the water below. The must-order item? A warm, buttery lobster roll, which can upgraded with add-ons including caviar and uni.

Butter & Crumble

After wowing customers with flaky and visually stunning bacon, egg, and cheese croissants, baker Sophie Smith has given her former pop-up business Butter & Crumble a permanent home in North Beach. Head over to the former Tante Marie’s Cooking School space at 271 Francisco Street to select a treat from options such as pistachio and cardamom sugar croissants, pain au chocolat, and chocolate chip cookies.

Four Kings

After months as a roving pop-up, Four Kings settled into its new Chinatown home in mid-March, marking one of the most anticipated restaurant openings of the spring. Mister Jiu’s alum Franky Ho and Mike Long run the kitchen, pushing out plates of flat-iron chow fun kissed with wok hei and Xinjiang lamb skewers spiced with mala, chile, and cumin. Don’t miss the Canto-nostalgic fare that draws from both Chinese and non-Chinese culinary traditions, for example, mapo spaghetti and XO snails. It’s a small space so be sure to make a reservation.

Today Food

There’s a tiny new dumpling spot on Kearny and you’ll know it by the street facing window that gives passersby a front-row view of the staff tucking filling into fresh wrappers. Today Food’s menu is concise but offers some less common options — think chicken and corn dumplings and pork and sauerkraut potstickers — all of which are made fresh onsite and cooked to order. Opt for takeout if the small number of tables aren’t available.

Jeanne D’Arc

After a long closure, Jeanne d’Arc Restaurant is back in action in the basement of the Hotel Cornell near Union Square. The French spot is all about the old-school, baroque vibes with gold-and-red frescos covering the walls and elaborate chandeliers. On the menu, it’s classics galore: escargots in garlic, butter, and parsley; coq au vin; and lapin chausseur with mushrooms, herbs, and red wine shallot sauce.

Boichik Bagels

The first of Boichik Bagel’s first San Francisco outposts opened in late March on a quiet street in the Laurel Heights. The good news is there’s a good amount of parking; the bad news is that there will likely be a line out the door as soon as they open. Nevertheless, stopping by to snag a egg everything bagel with horseradish scallion cheddar schmear is a wise way to start the day.

Head over to this small takeout-friendly SoMa restaurant for plant-based riffs on Filipino classics and stunning kamayan spreads — though there are meaty dishes on the menu too. It’s a comeback for Mestiza owner Deanna Sison who closed the first iteration of her restaurant in 2020 and now returns in a new space with chef Syl Mislang at her side. Order sweet potato-stuffed lumpia, calabasa coconut curry with aji verde, and a vegan version of sisig made with mushroom tempeh.
