Zuni Café

    Renowned for her out-of-this-world roast chicken, among other things, Judy Rodgers opened the doors of this local favorite over 20 years ago—before the Mission District was the hip food magnet it is today. Better than ever, it’s a destination spot for anyone who loves Mediterranean cuisine, brick-oven tactics, and the Californian devotion to fresh, sustainable produce. Dive into a snack of deep-fried Romanesco, purple broccoli, and onion rings with a spiced-up zing or a sliced local strip steak prepared tagliata-style.

    Specialties: Chicken for two; the daily pizza offerings.
