February is kind of notoriously a crap month. There are holidays not everyone wants to celebrate (V-Day), and holidays not everyone gets to celebrate (President's Day), and then, just like that, it's over. This February, though, had nine notable "crap month" exceptions: 1) a streak of absolutely amazing weather, and 2-9) these eight brand-new bars and restaurants.
Because you were probably too busy last month drinking beer in Dolores Park to check out 2-9, remedy that this weekend. You'll have a whole three extra days to do so. Enjoy.
The fact that “Sous Beurre” means “in butter” should be enough to convince you to check out Chef Michael Mauschbaugh’s longtime pop-up's permanent home in the Mission. But in case you need more (WHY DO YOU ALWAYS NEED MORE???), he's doing Provencal French cuisine starring seasonal local ingredients, like steak tartare, a bavette steak au poivre, and an $85 tasting menu that will change, but currently includes dishes like Mendocino uni and bone marrow French onion soup. Oh, and just FYI: SBK is ahead of the latest restaurant trend, as the staff does not accept tips.
