The idealistic schemes of dreamy undergrads tend not to pan out, which is too bad, 'cause today's society is totally ready for that literary Marxist travelogue cookbook for kids. Carrying youthful ideas to tasty fruition, Sons & Daughters.
S&D also boasts a plush little parlor room in the back, intimately lit and studded with comfy chairs n' couches, where they implore you to have a drink even if your table's ready, an idealistic scheme that'll pan out just fine, since your undergrad dream of drinking is alive and well.
This Michelin starred, petite neighborhood resto in Nob Hill offers a small but impressive array of California inspired cuisine from a trio of friends-- all under 30 -- who own and operate the restaurant. Great for date night, Sons & Daughters' cozy ambiance and refined fare are sure to impress. If you're looking to go all out, try the tasting menu. The seven-course feast, peppered with ome extra amuse bouche and bread courses along the way, including appetizer dishes before each main course, may be a bit steep, price-wise (it rings in at $115 per person), but knowing that all of the ingredients on your plate are locally sourced from Sons & Daughters' farm in Santa Cruz helps make the price tag a bit easier to swallow.
