4505 Burgers & BBQ
Got a craving for something juicy, meaty, and jam-packed with smoky barbecue flavor? 4505 is run by butcher Ryan Farr and the menu features meat plates of brisket, pulled pork, chicken, sausages, and the award-winning burger.
Stop by Ragazza for some authentic Italian antipasti and pizza. They do not accept reservations, so don’t come here on a time crunch. Instead, sit back, relax, and enjoy, as the Italians do. Enjoy a glass of wine with an Amatriciana pizza that is topped with a fresh egg and wonder why you ever ate pizza anywhere else.
Make a reservation for undoubtedly one of the most well-known hotspots on Divisadero and maybe in all of the Bay area. NoPa serves only the freshest and most organic ingredients, to bring you rustic flavors with a cozy atmosphere to match. They’re serving up not only the best dinners, but also a phenomenal weekend brunch. Come for the unique menu, and stay for the creative cocktails. Once you have given NoPa a try, head over to their sister restaurant Nopalito for a twist on modern Mexican cuisine.
Eddie’s Cafe serves a simple, fast, and original breakfast. They keep it humble and affordable, with nothing on the menu over $10. When all you want to do is stumble out of the house in your pajamas and bed-head to enjoy a cup of fresh brew at the counter, look no further. Eddie’s is an old-fashioned dinner – cash only.
Sure, you’ve had pizza, but nothing compares to the deep-dish goodness that is Little Star pizza. We recommend the Brass Monkey – the Little Star pizza with added sausage. There’s a great Happy Hour during the week and they offer bicycle delivery in the area.
The intimate atmosphere of Fly Bar is desired any day, any time. The dim lighting, brick walls, large seating areas, and countertop bar make it the perfect spot for an after-work bite, Tinder date meet up, lunch with your parents. The menu has a wide array of small plates, pizzas, and salads, catering to guests of all ‘gluten-free’ or trending diets. If you’re in the neighborhood, end your night here with a glass of beer or wine from their diverse selection.
Brenda’s Meat & Three
This extension of Brenda’s French Soul Food in the Tenderloin is bringing southern charm to Divisadero. The lunch and dinner menu is packed with spices, flavor and comfort food. In San Francisco, it’s all about the brunch: enjoy house-made biscuits and gravy, creole-spiced fried chicken Benedict, and pulled pork hash. Request a table in the back garden for that extra San Francisco touch.
Tucked around the corner of Divis on Fulton is Saffron Grill. San Francisco’s melting pot of cultures is what brings life and flavor to many restaurants and this one does not fall short. Saffron Grill creates the best contemporary Indian dishes, including Chicken Tikki Masala and Lamb Archa, arguably the tastiest and most authentic in the Bay. This cozy local hut likes to keep things intimate and is a must-try (although not for large groups).
How to be hip: walk in the doors of Crudo. Known for its raw-bar and seriously affordable Happy Hour specials, this place reins top 10 for a reason. It serves the freshest seafood and the best chowder around.
Modern Mexican cuisine is the new black. From the food to the interior, La Urbana’s contemporary take on things is exactly what leaves it to be recognized as top 10. Each dish in the restaurant is creative and unique, and that is putting it lightly. Along with the food, it has one of the best bars in the city, thanks to the excellent selection of tequilas and mescal cocktails. Great service, great atmosphere, great food, and even better drinks. This place is much like heaven on Earth.
