355 Eleventh St. San Francisco, CA 94103
This morning we went to Bar Agricole, one of my favorite places in the South of Market (SOMA) district of San Francisco. Traditionally industrial and famous for the Folsom Street Fair, the SOMA district is a tough and somewhat seedy place devoid of the iconic Victorian homes that are so representative of San Francisco’s more residential districts.
This area is long due for a turnaround, though, with trendy places like Sightglass and Bar Agricole popping up. The interior is industrial chic with woods, metals, and even piping used as light fixture decoration, and I love it. The drinks are outstanding, food is imaginative, and there’s even a heated outdoors area that is kind of zen. The menu changes every day, and they specialize in bringing out bold, natural flavors in fruits and vegetables.
