Summer in San Francisco means one thing: fog. Okay, two things: fog, and Giants baseball. It may not be an even year, but there's still nothing better than heading to AT&T Park for a homegame. Here are the spots where we're eating and drinking before, after and sure, during games this season.
Petit Marlowe. The newest addition to the Big Night Restaurant Group's roster. Petit Marlowe is a dream of a Parisian-style wine bar come true. Feast on oysters, tartare, and of course, deviled eggs, alongside a lovely selection of wines by the glass and bottle. Don't forget to save room for the rose ice cream, made in collaboration with Scribe Winery and Smitten Ice Cream.
Primo Patio. One of the O.G.'s of San Francisco outdoor dining, Primo Patio is a good-times go-to for Caribbean fare and cold bottles of Red Stripe. The jerk chicken is a must-order — in sandwich, salad, or entree form, the well-spiced chicken is even better with their signature creamy sauce.
Garaje. A no-frills spot in a converted garage, Garaje has quietly been slinging one of the city's best burgers for years. Add in some fantastic fish tacos and a surprisingly excellent craft beer selection and you've got the makings for a true ballpark go-to.
Cockscomb. A no-holds-barred temple of meat, Cockscomb is exactly where you want to head for a cocktail, some charcuterie, and a whole-roasted pig's head to share (seriously). There's much more than meat to this lively SOMA staple — swing by for drinks and snacks before the game, or a well-earned victory feast after (they're open until 11 pm).
