1. Americano Restaurant & Bar 8 Mission St, San Francisco, CA 94105 (Embarcadero)

Inside the boutique Hotel Vitale, Americano is an upscale Italian restaurant whose waterfront locale on the Embarcadero is as much of a lure as its pork & beef meatball appetizer. The all-day service peaks at happy hour, when sunset views over the Bay Bridge complement a menu featuring the aforementioned meatballs, charred individual pizzas with house-made mozzarella, and coriander-spiced fries. Though Italian in flavor and influence, the food is by no means heavy, and most of the ingredients are sourced from local California producers.
