1/Petit Marlowe
Because indulge in a taste of Paris by way of the Bay. The wine list is heavy on Burgundy and the menu pairs it with a mix of classics, like côte du boeuf, smoked duck, and foie gras-and-jam. // SoMa. Book now on Resy.

2/Navi Kitchen
Because first Chef Preeti Mistry brought you Pav Bhaji (Indian sliders) at Juhu Beach Club, and now the Top Chef brings you all-day eatery to add more spice to your life. // Oakland. Walk-ins only.

3/The Riddler
Because tater tot waffles (topped with caviar!) and a bottle of champagne is how The Riddler plays. Champagne for your real friends, real pain for your sham friends. // Hayes. Walk-ins only.

4/Robin
Because omakase isn’t the only way to eat, but it’s definitely the most satisfying. Melt-in-your-mouth wagyu, potato chip nigiri, and black truffle cold sesame noodles: this spot isn’t your average Japanese restaurant. // Fillmore. Book now on Resy.

5/Duna
Because chefs Nick Balla and Cortney Burns have revamped their Valencia Street outpost with a Central European menu. Do not skip dessert: frozen farmer’s cheesecake bar and PB&J truffles deliver. // Mission. (415) 484-1206.

6/Alba Ray’s
Because have you tried the off-menu andouille dog? Brunch has landed: next weekend, enjoy bananas foster pancake soufflé  (your name is on it). Pro tip: Shuck the haters with happy hour drinks and oysters. // Mission. Book now on Resy.

Because Japanese black wagyu cattle drink Hitachino beer, and so should you. Full-circle flavor. // Nob Hill. (415) 624-3580.

8/a Mano
Because the pesto tagliatelle will leave you weak in the knees. Plus, freshly baked focaccia slathered in tapenade. Ciao proprio. // Hayes. (415) 506-7401.

9/China Live
Because authentic Chinese dishes and all the hits. Case in point: zheng jian bao (pan-fried dumplings) with a juicy inside. Yes, please. Finish with an almond lotus cookie…yum cha. // Chinatown. (415) 788-8188.
