Here's 2014's Outside Lands Food and Drink Lineup

Photo: Rose Garrett

In its seventh year, Outside Lands continues to be the envy of every other music festival in the country when it comes to fantastic eating options. Whether you're craving a simple slice of pizza or fancy porcini doughnuts with raclette, meaty pork-belly burgers or healthy vegan fare, chocolate or other chocolate, you'll probably find more than a few things worth eating on the festival grounds. And of course, the lineup continues to be a who's-who of SF restaurant royalty, with AQ, TBD, Chino, Beast and the Hare, Glaze Teriyaki Grill, and Curry Up Now joining returning favorites Homeroom, Rich Table, Nojo, Wise Sons, and the American Grilled Cheese Kitchen. Throw in special "lands" for cheese, chocolate, craft beer, and wine, and it's a wonder anyone ever makes it over to see the musical acts (which will include Kanye West, The Killers, The Flaming Lips, and Tom Petty this go-round). Though a few favorites didn't make the cut this year (sniff sniff, lamb poutine, paella, and Nopalito's totopos con chile), there's plenty to be excited about.
