The Fillmore Street Restaurant and Bar Guide – San Francisco
Having lived in San Francisco for a decade (in the same neighborhood) I have come to the realization that I am really lucky to have this many dining and drinking options within a stone’s throw of my flat. I have so many choices that the sheer volume sometimes leaves me with no opinion on where to go. Sad, I know! Some argue less is more…they obviously don’t have a lot to choose from. I wanted to jot a list of the places and share them with all who care. Enjoy!
Nosh in the Hood…. A Culinary tour of the Fillmore. This is a lil guide of some solid restaurants in the hood. If you are new to the Fillmore/Pac Heights neighborhood or just want a quick reference hopefully this will help!
