The food in SF is off the chain. Upon arriving in town, we head straight to Beretta for cocktails, fava bean coristini and pizza topped with burrata.
I make at least one visit to Tartine and happily brave the line for their insane croissants, morning buns and muesli.
I always visit Gravel and Gold for accessories, homegoods, cards and more made by local designers.
The de Young organizes great exhibits and this time it we got to see "Georgia O'Keeffe And Lake George," on view through May 11.
Jessee Kamm trench, Beatrice Valenzuela booties and Clare Vivier Gosee make up my ideal traveling uniform.
Wise Sons is a hip Jewish deli that started as a pop-up and is now a mainstay in the Mission. Get the Ruben.
The Mill is a a collaboration between Josey Baker Bread and Four Barrel Coffee and it's all about the cinnamon toast and cream cheese and pepper on rye.
Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archives for innovative exhibitions (like the must-see show The Possible) and film retrospectives.
Curated by Dave Wilson, The Possible invites viewers to convene and participate in the act of making. On view through May 25.
Trouble Coffee in the Outer Sunset is known for fresh young coconuts and cinnamon toast. It's a funny little pairing but I love it.
Right next door to Trouble, The General Store stocks vintage dresses and ceramics by many LA-based designers.
And if you're feeling active, hike Mount Tam for a killer workout and and 360 degree view of the Bay Area.
San Francisco Weekend
My sister is a yoga teacher and writer living in San Francisco and over the years Alex and I have spent many weekends visiting her. She is a gracious hostess and continues to show us the greatest spots: the best burrito, the best croissant, the most beautiful hikes and awesome day trips. There’s so much fun to be had in the bay area and this list is merely scratching the surface. These are my favorite things to do right now in SF. Enjoy!
