When in San Francisco, you should make a point to explore Golden Gate Park, which is even bigger than NYC's Central Park. You could easily spend all day there. Here are eight fine restaurants in or near the park to fuel your journey.
2. Mid-day through your journey, exit the park at 19th Street and Lincoln Avenue to pop into popular Nopalito for contemporary Mexican.
4. Outerlands features a rotating menu of seasonal salads, soups and sandwiches.
5. Grab a giant sandwich to go from Velo Rouge Cafe on the Inner Richmond side and walk back up Arguello Boulevard into the park, where you’ll find a quiet clearing of benches. If you squint, you can see the Golden Gate Bridge’s international orange shimmering through the pine trees.
8. When you reach the Pacific, enjoy watching the waves crash on Ocean Beach over breakfast, lunch or dinner at The Beach Chalet. Take a few minutes to admire the 1930s mural on the first floor or the historical displays.
