Named for the northern French tradition of a shot of brandy between courses, this second location, from the owners of James Beard Award winning Bar Agricole, unites the pleasures of traditional mixed drinks and uncomplicated food. The focus of the kitchen is house-made charcuterie and salumi. As many as 40 types of charcuterie are available on the all-day menu. Seasonal sides and simple cuts of meat round out the dinner options. The menu will change throughout the day from breakfast through dinner and late night. The focus of the drink menu is brandy. Many of the Armagnacs, Cognacs and Calvados served at Trou Normand and Bar Agricole are found nowhere else in the world.

"Since their opening, Trou Normand has quickly become a Financial District go-to. I'd only been for lunch before, but I can now safely say their dinner is just as excellent! The salumi boards are a must-order, no matter when you visit, and the pastas were absolutely fantastic. The dish that really stood out, though, was the kale with sunchokes... sunchoke chips, plus roasted sunchokes filled this dish, and the kale was almost creamed... truly delicious!"

This James Beard Award winning restaurant with a clientele as diverse as San Francisco opened in 1979. A vibrant Parisian-style standing-only copper bar greets you as you enter on Rose Alley. Zuni's menu changes daily with dishes inspired by traditional Italian and French recipes. Nearly all of the produce, meat, and fish served at Zuni is farmed and harvested in a sustainable manner. Even without a reservation, bar tables are available on a first come, first served basis and the full menu is available. The bar also serves traditional cocktails made with top-shelf ingredients; refreshments at its best in an environment of effortless hospitality. Whether you dine early or prefer to dine after theater, Zuni is a welcoming haven. -Judy Rodgers, chef/co-owner -Gilbert Pilgram, co-owner

"Zuni - as always - is a San Francisco classic. This visit on particular was to show some relatives from Seattle a "quintessential San Francisco restaurant" (their request). Where else to go but Zuni and the famous roast chicken? We ordered all the appetizers - the bresaola was a standout, and the fideus were outstanding. Of course, order the chicken when you sit down - even if it's just for the table and you get other entrees. It's an absolute masterpiece. Desserts were also wonderful - we shared a couple cheese plates and the persimmon pudding. Truly delicious. We'll be back, of course!"

Verbena brings a distinct culinary and beverage experience to the Russian Hill neighborhood of San Francisco. The kitchen team incorporates a balance of artisanal vegetable dishes and whole animal butchery. The inspiration for the menu draws from deep working relationships with farmers and ranchers who are extremely passionate about their craft. The bar sets the stage in the restaurant and features an innovative beverage program highlighting carefully crafted small batch spirits and wines.

"We came here to celebrate our friend's engagement... What a wonderful evening! As always, the staff was warm and incredibly hospitable, and made our celebration even more special. We ordered just about everything - the standouts - the frying peppers, little gems, pork cheeks, and grilled chicken. SO good. And be sure to take the staff's recommendations about wine - they are fantastic at suggesting options that complement the meal and meet your price point. We'll be back (again)!"
