Great China: Rising from the ashes after a destructive fire two years ago, this Berkeley Chinese restaurant has reopened a block from its original location.

La Nebbia: The casual spinoff of Noe Valley's popular Sardinian restaurant features prosciutto, pizza, and other light bites along with a well-curated Italian wine list. 1781 Church, 874-9924, lanebbia.com.

Rare Barrel: A new brewery dedicated to sour beer opens in Berkeley. The tasting room housed inside the production facility, with its 10 beer taps, is open on Fridays and Saturdays, and also offers sandwiches and salads. 940 Parker, Berkeley, (510) 984-6585, therarebarrel.com.

Verbena: This Russian Hill Cali-cuisine spot comes from the folks behind Berkeley's Gather. Expect menu items like duck meatballs, pig trotter terrine, and seafood sausage, along with a producer-focused wine list. 2323 Polk, 441-2323, verbenarestaurant.com.

  • San Francisco Street Food Festival 2014
    The San Francisco Street Food Festival was another success this year. Dozens of vendors with original, unheard-of creations, such as deep fried mac and cheese on a stick, black pea paste pancakes, and Korean quesadillas. Then there was the comfort foods we've grown accustomed to, like creme bruleé, shrimp rolls, and pound cake. Photographs by Mabel Jimenez.
