We’re three friends from Ocala, Florida, with deep roots in small town hospitality. Our Southeastern inspired restaurant features a variety of sustainable and organic goods, craft brewed American micro-beers, and a choice collection of local wines and spirits. We aim to recreate a little taste of Southern community, bringing people together by sharing great food & drink. We look forward to welcoming you into our family.<br><br>Daniel, David, and Adam<br>Hops & Hominy

"We were very pleased to find good Southern food -- and all in our party were from the South -- at a reasonable price, in a cute place, with very nice service -- so close to Union Square. We had a good time, and we'll definitely go back. Thanks, H&H!
Know that you will need a flashlight to read the poorly designed menu -- get out your cell phone! And your reading glasses.

At Farallon, Chef Mark Franz serves coastal cuisine with French influence. The menu changes daily depending on what's fresh. Expect exciting combinations and show-stopping execution.

"For some years, Farallon was a favorite, for the reliably excellent food. Then a few years back plates began to look all white, or very pale shades, with flavors to match. The fish was always impeccably fresh, but both the presentation and the taste of the overall dish were bland. We went again last week, hoping for something like the Farallon we had always enjoyed, but we were disappointed to see that the blandness was still there, coupled with a lack of attention to detail in the presentation that made us feel we were paying too much. The service was excellent, and the decor is as ever, but I would not, at this point, recommend the restaurant. ,"

Luna Park with its casually hip decor, lively bar scene, and delicious moderately-priced cuisine is a Valencia Street sensation, loved by San Franciscans and visitors alike. The menu, mostly French and Italian with a few American and Asian accents, is simple without sacrificing excitement, highlighting flavorful ingredients and presenting food in a way that is comforting and nourishing to the soul.

Inspired on the thousands of cebicherias found throughout Peru, La Mar Cebicheri­a Peruana, was created as an attempt to globalize and enshrine one of the best guarded treasures of Peruvian cuisine: cebiche, Peruvian seafood and the scenery created to enjoy them, the Peruvian style cebicheria.

"This would be a really pleasant place if the wait staff were a little better trained and if the kitchen would pay more attention to details. It shouldn't be hard to get water with no ice and no lemon; wait staff should not bark "Are you still working on that?" when patrons are enjoying a leisurely meal, not "working" — and there are plenty of empty tables. If the kitchen thinks they have to sprinkle raw chopped garlic on an already well-seasoned dish, make sure it's very fresh. Aging garlic tastes acrid, bitter. Gilroy isn't that far away!"

Rising Star Chef Nominee by the James Beard Foundation, Founder Chef Luke Sung, at Isa has received many accolades from five consecutive years on the Chronicle's Top 100 Bay Area Restaurant List to the Top 40 in Zagat. This is a restaurant not to be missed in San Francisco.

"While we enjoyed our dinner, it was a little bothersome to have our waiter keep stopping by to tell us that we were having a dish "exactly as served at the French Laundry" and so forth. In two fish dishes, including the potato-wrapped halibut, the fish was somewhat overcooked and dry. Same for the grilled asparagus, which we should not have ordered anyway as it's August, not March. But flavor combinations were well done, the staff was quick and warmly cheerful, and it's nice to have a $5 (before 7 PM) glass of wine that is pleasantly drinkable."
