Why go? In every neighborhood, village and town, there is a place where people gather. Once upon a time, neighbors would catch up with friends at the town square or weekly market, trading gossip and laughter at the post office or local pub. In Presidio Heights, that place is Spruce, a distinctive restaurant that reflects the charm of its surroundings and provides residents with a welcoming place in which to dine, socialize, and relax. Since opening their doors in 2007, Spruce has received praise and recognition for their food, wine, and unparalleled service. Such honors include one highly coveted Michelin star, three-and-a-half stars from the San Francisco Chronicle and Wine Spectator has recognized their wine list for numerous years.
What to order? The food is Californian cuisine through and through. Try the duck breast (which is roasted to perfection), risotto verde, or heritage chicken. The SMIP Ranch heirloom tomato salad showcases the amazing produce grown exclusively for Spruce in the hills above Woodside.
Pipsqueak tip Take the kids for weekend brunch, where the whole family can feast on beignets, cinnamon rolls and their famous Spruce burger.
