Why go? Park Tavern has been nominated for the James Beard Foundation’s Best New Restaurant award and has enjoyed long-standing inclusion on San Francisco Chronicle’s Top 100 list since opening in 2012. Come for the lovely decor, stay for the food, and enjoy this airy sidewalk café that overlooks picturesque Washington Square Park.
What to order? You can’t wrong with the classics – brussels sprout chips, deviled eggs and Marlowe burger are all top favorites.
Pipsqueak tip As one of the few restaurants in town that takes weekend brunch reservations, this place is a top spot for kids (no more waiting in queues with risk of meltdowns, disturbing nap schedules, etc.). Plus it sits directly across the street from Washington Square Park – even better!
