Located on the same block as Burma Superstar, Kitchen Istanbul is typically fairly busy, but because its in a lesser known location, it’s a great option if you are too hungry to wait as some of the more popular restaurants nearby. They offer exceptional Middle Eastern food, from crispy brussel sprouts to vegetarian moussaka, there are far too many good options and it can be hard to choose. No matter what you decide on for dinner, be sure to try the fresh berries with whipped cream and honey for dessert; you won’t regret it.
A charming old school pizzeria, Giorgio’s is without question the best pizzeria in Inner Richmond. The pizza will make you reminisce about your childhood, and the old school tablecloths and decorations will send you right back to the good-old-days where eating pizza every day was acceptable. Giorgio’s is usually busy, but the wait won’t be as long as some of the other restaurants in the area, so if you’re starved, head to the pizzeria.
This tiny sushi spot is tucked away from the main Clement Street eateries. Reservations are required for this location, otherwise it’s likely you will be turned away at the door, and also make sure to bring cash as they don’t accept cards. The ambiance is intimately authentic and the chef is experienced and talented. This is a local hole in the wall that shouldn’t be passed up, since it has no frills sushi for a less expensive price.
