Emporio Rulli Gran Caffé - CLOSED
San Francisco, CA 94123
SF Weekly's Description
CLOSED (This now the location of Ristobar.) This new addition to the Emporio Rulli mini-empire (the original bakery-cafe in Larkspur, a small cafe in downtown San Francisco, two coffee bars at SFO, and a mail-order business) adds terrific Italian dinners to the superb baked goods, panini, and coffee drinks it's known for (and which are perfect for light breakfasts and lunches). The dinner menu changes weekly, but we've been impressed by the quality and originality of the food. The airy, stylish room, with a fancy chandelier suspended from an even fancier mural-painted ceiling, features modernistic chrome tables and chairs; during the day, you can dine at sidewalk tables.
Tips from foursquare
Menu must: market Street pizza (smoked mozzarella, escarole, chili, herbs)
When Executive Food and Wine Editor and restaurant critic for the San Francisco Chronicle Michael Bauer met Ristobar, he added it to his yearly Top 100 Bay Area Restaurants Guide.
You can't beat a wine-robot dispensing awesomeness!
Emporio Rulli Gran Caffe is now called Ristobar - same owners and staff, different dining concept. Worth a visit for a great dinner.
Beets, must get. Branzino, same.
