6. Tobin Hill
Technically, The Pearl is part of Tobin Hill. But each stands alone as its own dining hub, unique in personality and vibe. Tobin Hill is a little less shiny than its master-planned counterpart, a little more relaxed and boho. Without designated parking lots, the logistics can get tricky at peak hours. But as you’re circling the block in search of an open spot, keep your eyes on the prize: fabulous restaurants including The Cookhouse, Barbaro, The Clean Plate, and, if you expand the boundary by a block or so, perennial SA fave The Cove.
