Papito in Hayes Valley is a good spot for a casual midweek date. They have the same tacos we love from their original location and fantastic spicy margaritas, and if you can’t get a seat outside on a nice day, this roof here is mostly skylights, so it still feels like you’re outside even if you aren't. Kind of.
