Sometimes the gods smile upon us and the sun stays out and the temperature remains above 60 degrees into the evening. On those blessed days, we run to El Techo. The city views can’t be beat and neither can the margaritas. It’s a strong strategy if you’re looking to convince your friend who lives in Philadelphia to move here.

Serious sushi types rave about ICHI in Bernal Heights. We like the sushi, but the cooked food is really where it’s at.
