Spruce in SF...

Tucked away in Presidio Heights, is a new notable restaurant called Spruce, in a charming old 30s auto barn that once housed Model T cars. The well known Bacchus group, who owns other popular eateries in Northern California made it likely that this would be a gem.

Dressed to the nines - in the elegant setting of this gorgeous space decorated in cozy chocolate brown and warm taupe tones, a marble bar, mirrors and crystal - its draw is of both the younger crowd of the marina and older locals of pacific heights. Serving a bar and dinner menu you can choose from foie gras, ravioli, or scallops for an appetizer, followed by cafe paninis, buttered Maine lobster or charred Berkshire pork tenderloin and leave room for a brandied cherry soda float. (Among other delectable items of course.) The wine selection is a long list that is bound in over 100 pages, and the good vibe and classic neighborhood feel make this a place where you can truly relish the cuisine and grace of a meal. $$$
