    The Doctor Is In - Tommy's Mexican Restaurant

    According to one legend currently circulating at Tommy's Mexican Restaurant, it all began as follows: Many centuries ago, a storm swept over the plains of western Mexico, and a thin finger of lightning bridged the gap between heaven and earth, touchi...

    The Sun Also Rises - Le Soleil

    Le Soleil has become a Richmond standby. The spot is strategically located at the easternmost end of Clement's mighty chain of Asian restaurant delights, and so probably draws a number of customers from newcomers to the neighborhood who've strolled t...

    Location, Location, Location - Zax

    I lived for two years in an apartment at the corner of Jackson and Taylor, right next door (incidentally) to Jack Lemmon's apartment building in Days of Wine and Roses and two blocks north of Steve McQueen's digs in Bullitt. The intersection is one o...

    Side Dish - Extra Helpings, Thanks for the Memories, Over and Out

    Extra Helpings Wow! Just when you thought the San Francisco restaurant community could stretch no further, along came 1999. With a focus on high-end four-star contenders (and wallet-breakers) and more-bang-for-your-buck comfort food outlets, the numb...

    The Man Who Came to Dinner - Dolores Street Community Services

    Around this time last year, the holiday spirit sent me combing the city in search of some charitable twist on the old "Dinner Man" theme. The result was a somewhat frustrating but ultimately rewarding day of volunteering at a local food kitchen. The ...

    Nuevo Trendino - Charanga

    New York is simply overrun with them, but San Francisco has surprisingly few. They can be interesting, cozy, and smart when done right, but all too often are just repetitive and trite. I speak not of pashmina shawls, but of another eerily ubiquito...

    Home for the Holidays - Schroeder's

    On the Right Track - Red Herring Restaurant and Bait Bar

    The Swedish Chef - Abbsolutly

    For all its exalted status as the only Swedish restaurant in San Francisco, Abbsolutly is pretty low-key. Until you look at the menu, it passes completely for just another bar -- albeit a fairly handsome one -- on the bleak motel strip of Lombard...
