Another one you’ll want to book well in advance, Rich Table
in Hayes Valley is so so worth the wait. Everything on the menu is completely original with an emphasis on pasta dishes, of which all is made in-house. There are so many unique offerings on the menu that can be easy to pass by if you don’t know exactly what it is – let your server recommend items and you won’t be let down. The interiors are cozy and casual with salvaged barn wood on the walls and locally-made Jared's Pottery serveware. What to order:
Porcini doughnuts (our server said it was a must, he was right), chicken liver mousse with blueberry hoisin and a steam bun, beer-battered soft shell crab, and Sea Urchin cacio y pepe – order it all, ask questions later.
