WE HEART SAN FRANCISCO

MAY 1ST, 2008

WE HEART SAN FRANCISCO

A springtime pilgrimage is in order…

Eat
With no reservations and great prices, you may wait for two hours for a seat at the new-ish SPQR, but sidle up to the bar for house-made pastas with deceivingly simple sauces. 1911 Fillmore St., San Francisco, 415-771-7779, www.spqrsf.com

Shop
The Blues Jean Bar
can set you up with some skinnies or, our new fave, the bleached-out slouchy boyfriend cut for summer. 1827 Union St., San Francisco, 415-346-4280, www.thebluesjeanbar.com

Drink
The Hog Island Oyster bar in the Ferry Building is the ultimate perch to sip afternoon bubbles over a plate of fresh California Kumamotos ($30 a dozen) and red romaine salad garnished with white anchiovies from Spain. 1 Ferry Building 11A, San Francisco, www.hogislandoysters.com

Stay
Hotel Vitale could not be better situated with harbour views and the amazing Ferry Building (and its Saturday/Tuesday Farmers Market) across the street. The open-air restaurant patio can get scene-y, but sometimes a scene is fun. www.hotelvitale.com
