DiDi’s Picks


1701 Octavia St

San Francisco, CA 94109

(415) 408-7507

Michelin Star rated Californian cuisine restaurant, the ambience is very relaxed and casual. All the servers are very friendly and knowledgeable of their menu. Some nights, the restaurant offers a tasting menu, it’s a great way to try all their specialties. Must try the Deviled Eggs (little spicy), chilled squid ink noodles. Don’t forget to leave some room for dessert!



500 Brannan St

San Francisco, CA 94107

(415) 777-1413

Very lively restaurant with a great bar program. Try the Brussel sprout chips, bone marrow, baked oysters and probably the best pork chop I’ve ever had!


New Spot on Polk

2401 Polk St

San Francisco, CA 94109

(415) 913-7775

Casual Breakfast & Brunch to diner restaurant. This is the dream restaurant for those who crave for  breakfast items at 5pm. Great place Try the Montecristo waffles and the Bacon BBQ Burger. Once you sit down and look around the tables, you will want to order everything on the menu.


Great Eastern Restaurant

649 Jackson St

San Francisco, CA 94133

(415) 986-2500

Rare Dim Sum restaurant that takes reservations. This restaurant is very authentic for Dim Sum. The menu also has pictures which really help for ordering yourself by check-marking next to the item you want. Try the Turnip Cake, the Rice Noodle Rolls with beef, Snow pea Sprouts w/Shrimps Dumplings… 



603 Bush St

San Francisco, CA 94108

(415) 956-0396

Very small but mighty Californian- French restaurant. Less than a five minute walk from our clinic. They serve small plates which allow you to try different things. If you sit on the first floor, you can see the action from their tiny kitchen and interact with Julie, the owner, a very fun and honest French lady! All their dishes are made with fresh ingredients. Menu changes seasonally. 


Zuni Café

1658 Market St

San Francisco, CA 94102

(415) 552-2522

This place is San Francisco’s favorite! Probably one of the top 5 most recommended restaurants in San Francisco. While not 100% French cuisine, Zuni offers a great Italian flare as well. They are the most known for their rotisserie chicken with the bread salad. Order right away when you sit down, it takes about 60 minutes to roast.

Taj Campton Place 

340 Stockton St

San Francisco, CA 94108

(415) 955-5555

Located inside the Taj hotel, this Michelin 2-star restaurant offers an incredible tasting menu for dinner. Elevated service in the dining room, the servers maintain the Forbes standards. Chef Srijith Gopinathan is extremely creative. He’s managed to marry fresh california ingredients with light southern indian spices, executing classic and contemporary french techniques. The bistro/ bar area offers a more casual atmosphere and à la carte menu all from the same kitchen and chef. Try the fish curry if you want to try a full flavor dish and yet light!


Tony’s Pizza Napoletana

1570 Stockton St

San Francisco, CA 94133

(415) 835-9888

If you are a pizza lover, this place is paradise. Tony won the Best Pizza Margherita at the World Pizza Cup in Naples, Italy. Detroit, Sicilian, Coal Fired, Romana, New York, Gluten Free, you name it, they will have it! 


Sotto Mare Oysteria & Seafood

552 Green St. 

San Francisco, CA 94133

(415) 398-3182

The local’s favorite for Italian seafood fare. Everything is good here!!! The location is right in North Beach, the Italian Neighborhood known for its fun and lively vibe at night. Try the Sand Dabs and the Cioppino! I would recommend getting an Uber since parking could be a little challenging in this neighborhood. 



75 Yerba Buena Ln

San Francisco, CA 94103

(415) 243-0299

During lunch service, the restaurant is a taqueria that offers authentic mexican food. But for dinner, traditional plates are being served. I recommend making a reservation at night since it’s a very popular place among the locals. With an enormous selection of Tequila, the drink of choice should be a margarita if you want an alcoholic beverage. Try their chicken with the mole poblano or the grilled pork chop!
