Ever since my first trip to the United States as a schoolgirl, I have kept San Francisco (SF) as one of my favorite cities.
I wish we would have had time to try some drinks at its beautiful bar, but we had booked a table and were short of time coming from the airport. Next time, then …
The fresh seafood and fish were delicious.
The service attentive and friendly, and our party of eight enjoyed a most delightful, reunion dinner.
Nice walk along the Embarcadero to our hotel.
- Hotel Bohème – I can only recommend this charming 15-room hotel in North Beach. A throwback to the late 1950’s; a well-achieved tribute to the Beat era.
Complimentary sherry in the lobby, nice for an aperitif or a nightcap. Little details like this count for a foodie …
Being at Stella, felt like being in a café in Italy.
Note that it is not a restaurant but a take away and, as its name indicates, it sells only dim sum, and they are really delicious! The dumplings were the best ones I have ever had, and—I can tell you—I have tried lots in many different places.
Café Zoetrope – This restaurant offers excellent Italian food as well as Italian and Californian wines. It is located on the ground floor of the beautiful Columbus Tower (or Sentinel Building), also in North Beach.
The beauty of this flatiron building is really impressive.
I liked the bistro atmosphere …
… and really loved the wine and food!
