San Francisco's Best Dining Neighborhood of 2015

The one neighborhood that stood out for dining to San Francisco's top food writers.

For sheer saturation levels, the Mission, I suppose. For everything else, the entirety of Oakland.

Paolo Lucchesi,  food editor at The SF Chronicle

Still the Mission.

I live in northern SoMa/Mid-Market, so I'm biased, but we've had a pretty big year: Oro, Montesacro, Volta, Dirty Water, Bon Marché, Cadillac Bar & Grill, the second Delarosa, Fogo de Chao.

The Hayes Valley/Civic Center neighborhood has been a massive draw for new food and drinks establishments.

Divis is rad, but I've been saying all year that the Marina of 2015 is almost freakishly better than the Marina of 2014. (I still hate biking home from there, though.)

Surprisingly, the Tendernob popped this year with places like Liholiho, Pizza del Popolo, and Huxley. Hayes Valley is also bursting with new spots like Petit Crenn, Birba, and Cala, and great standbys like Rich Table, Souvla, Absinthe, and Zuni.

Hayes Valley has a strong brew, and Lower Nob Hill/Tenderloin is percolating.

Pretty much every neighborhood had a strong infusion of great restaurants, but I think mid-Market has had a big year. It was also a big year for Oakland, though that falls outside the neighborhood category.
