40 "Small Plates" restaurants in San Francisco.
The seafood and vegetable-focused Mexican food at Cala is some of the best in San Francisco.
Che Fico Alimentari in Nopa is a lot smaller and darker than its older sibling restaurant upstairs, but the Italian food is just as good.
The plates at Al's Place in the Mission look like art, and taste pretty great too. "Best New Restaurant in the US 2015" ain't a bad calling card either.
Barvale, in NoPa, serves quality tapas - including some of the best octopus we’ve ever eaten.
Nojo is a great example of our favorite type of restaurant: excellent food and easy to get into.
Meet Terzo, your utility player restaurant. It’s hard to go wrong at this Cow Hollow bistro.
Verjus is a wine bar and bottle shop in the Financial District perfect for an after-work date and drinks before dinner.
A safe house from spicy sauce in the Castro, Eiji is one of the best low-key sushi spots around.
Chubby Noodle in the Marina is our go-to in the neighborhood for a good time and even better food. We occasionally dream about the pork tacos.
Lolo in the Mission is a fun Mexican spot with great margaritas that’s ideal for a weeknight dinner.
Altovino is an Italian restaurant in Nob Hill perfect for a quiet date or a business dinner.
Onsen is a Japanese restaurant attached to a communal bathhouse in the Tenderloin. And it’s definitely better than it sounds.
