One of the few places in the city that does weekday brunch, Universal Cafe is a gem. The dinner is upscale American - from steak to pasta to a fish that changes regularly - but daytime is when Universal is at its best. The outdoor tables on a sunny weekend are ideal, partly because you can gloat at all the suckers still waiting in line while you get a tan.

Taqueria El Farolito
Taqueria El Farolito in the Mission makes one of our favorite burritos in the city.
A 40-seat, communal tasting menu that’s an awesome experience overall. This is fine dining for young people.
