This week, Whitewaller San Francisco launches for FOG Design + Art (January 11—14). To help guide you to the best spots in town—where you can eat, drink, see art, and relax at, we hear from a group of insiders. Next up, we hear from Cheryl Haines, Principal at Haines Gallery; Founding Executive Director of FOR-SITE Foundation.
WHERE TO EAT AND SIP
One of my all-time favorite places to eat is Zuni Café, and recently I’ve enjoyed Al’s Place on Valencia, Cotogna, and Liholiho Yacht Club. Eight Tables is amazing, and Mourad as well. I also love to dine and entertain at home. I shop for ingredients at places like the farmers’ market at Fort Mason, and Bryan’s market in Laurel Village for the best seafood.
WHERE TO SEE ART
The Contemporary Jewish Museum, Capp Street Project, Kadist, Pier 24 Photography, and the recently opened McEvoy Foundation for the Arts. I also have a very fond attachment to the Presidio of San Francisco, with its many permanent sculptures by Andy Goldsworthy.
WHERE TO RELAX AND HAVE FUN
Historic music venues like The Fillmore, The Chapel, and The Lost Church in the Mission, and the Sausalito Cruising Club for live jams.
