One of San Francisco’s downtown restaurants that continually receives acclaim in this culinary-centric city is Parallel 37, named for the prevailing geographic latitude that runs through San Francisco and the Bay Area. Savor globally inspired California cuisine as envisioned by Chef Michael Rotondo and crafted with hyper-seasonal ingredients found only in this geographic location. Hailing from legendary Charlie Trotter’s in Chicago, Rotondo has crafted a menu filled with interesting ingredients and unexpected components. The lively bar offers guests a “kitchen to cocktail” mixology program that incorporates fresh ingredients from the local farmer’s market to create house-made syrups, juices, salts and infusions for innovative cocktails. Popular sips include the “Bar Fly” with Templeton rye, Benedictine, poblano pepper, vanilla and lemon; and the “Fort Orange” with New Amsterdam gin, Tempus Fugit Crème de Menthe, lemon, orange blossom water and soda.
Casual fare can be found at The Lounge, with San Francisco views plus a menu of seasonal cocktails with local spirits and a selection of local beers.
