If you’re looking for fancy tacos in the neighborhood, Matador is the answer. The drinks are tasty, the tacos are good (but not out of this world), and there are a bunch of seats around the bar that seem made for casual weeknight hangs. As a heads up, they do a lot of carry out, which means the food can sometimes take a while to come out.

Like its sister spot on Fillmore, Jane on Larkin serves some of our favorite lattes, granola, breakfast sandwiches, and avocado toasts in the city.

We love Lers Ros for a big group dinner, especially when your group is down to eat some spicy alligator. This Thai joint is best if you get adventurous.
