For the foodies, style seekers, drinkers and those who like to indulge…. here is CARROTS inside guide to this spectacular city.

EAT and DRINK:

Bix – classic, SF staple. Order a manhattan (with brandied cherries, of course!) and the brioche crab rolls.  Just around the corner from CARROTS!

Nopalito – mexican fare. Clean, simple, delicious.  The Carnitas are not to be missed.

Rose’s Cafe – local neighborhood favorite. Italian fare, great for dinner or Sunday brunch (breakfast pizza, enough said).

Frances – absolutely amazing food, new on the radar, try the house-made wine.  Recently received a Michelin Star!

Spruce – chic spot for a special occasion.  Love the bar for a cocktail and the delightful burger.

Dosa – best indian in the city. We especially love the Mission location.

Quince – Italian food, as good (if not better) than in Italy, a dressier affair – great for a special occasion.

Pizzeria Delfina – we are THE pizza aficionado’s, trust us… its scrumptious. Broccoli Rabe is the fan favorite around here.

Sebo – some of the best sushi in the city, states, world…. at least according to Travel & Leisure.

Bi-Rite Creamery – salted carmel ice cream, along with every other creative, seasonal flavor… lavender honey… mmm! Killer combo = dinner at Pizzeria Delfina (Mission location) and dessert at Bi-Rite.

Bourbon and Branch – prohibition-era vibe, no name on the door, password required, perfect cocktails. Get booked online.

Wayfare Tavern – Tyler Florence’s new SF venture.  Rustic American cuisine and Victorian-era cocktails.

Beretta – all kinds of mixing madness happening here. Definitely go for the Anejo Sour…. goes great with the Burrata Pizza.

SHOP:

Archive – men’s apparel, cutting-edge designers from all over Europe and Japan.

Japonesque – a Japanese art gallery across the street, worth a stop after your CARROTS visit!

Harputs Market – conveniently located downtown, hip men’s and women’s collections.  Be sure to check out their private label!

Downtown – chic, edgy boutique in Union Square. Very unique pieces from around the world.

Sue Fisher King – a carefully curated selection of home design.  Beautiful linens, tabletop and they carry our favorite ceremics collection by Astier De Villlatte.

CHILL:

Sen Spa – a little slice of heaven in the presidio. Go for a quiet, relaxing, afternoon to pamper yourself with an amazing facial, massage, steam and rejuvination.

Bamboo – the perfect manicure & pedicure.  It’s the perfect stop after a leisurely brunch at Rose’s Cafe.

These are some of our favorites, we’ll do our best to keep you updated on what’s new… let us know what you think!
