San Francisco

Equipped with a fireplace and plenty of TVs, this Polk Street bar combines the intimacy of a neighborhood bar with upscale food. Its hair-of-the-dog brunch offers all the booze-soaking classics like huevos rancheros and breakfast sandwiches from Hog & Rocks chef-owner Scott Youkilis, plus actual hair-of-the-dogginess in the form of a spicy Bloody Mary and Silver Fox Fizz. Sideway seats make it even more a fair-weather destination.
