It's time to update the Eater 38, your answer and ours to any question that begins, "Can you recommend a restaurant?" This highly elite group covers the entire city, spans myriad cuisines and collectively satisfies all of your restaurant needs. Every few months, we add pertinent restaurants that were omitted, have newly become eligible (restaurants must be open at least six months) or have stepped up their game. And keep in mind, this list is presented in no particular order.
As always, a few places must depart the 38, including St. Vincent (currently undergoing a chef shuffle), Greens, and Burma Superstar. In their stead, we offer Verbena, a great new vegetarian option; Trou Normand, home of epic charcuterie and cocktails; and Padrecito, a neighborhood Mexican spot with killer food and drinks. (If you're looking to find a great bar, the Eater SF cocktail heatmap has what you're seeking.)
Rather than having a stage-four meltdown over our having excluded your favorite restaurant from the list, wouldn't it be more productive to just nominate it for inclusion?
