One of the few Cow Hollow restaurants not located directly on Union Street, Brazen Head is an old-school, dimly-lit corner place that you’ve probably walked by without noticing. They don’t announce themselves with a big neon sign, they just make stiff cocktails and classic French food. It’s a good place to take parents who aren’t so adventurous but are looking for the “real San Francisco.”
