Zuni showcases San Francisco Mediterranean cooking at its best. Although Judy Rodgers, the award-winning chef-owner passed away in December of 2013Chez Panisse alumnus Gilbert Pilgram continues to run the kitchen. The seasonal and organic ingredients are always impeccable and the fish and meats are raised sustainably. The House-made finocchiona salami with shaved fennel, Black Mission figs, and pistachio picada is a must. The whole roasted chicken with bread salad for two are among the emblematic dishes in this food-mad town, and the house-ground grass-fed burger on rosemary focaccia with aïoli and house-made pickles (lunch only) is epic.

The roast chicken with bread salad is a must-have.
Besides "the" chicken, Zuni's burger, Caesar salad and bloody Mary have all been called the best in the city. [Eater 38 Member]

An SF classic: Great oysters, full cocktail bar, and the famous chicken-for-two!

Two great options for full-bodied wines from great vintages: Casanova di Neri’s Brunello ‘04 (sangiovese from Montalcino) & Domaine la Bouïssière’s Gigondas ‘07 (grenache blend, from Southern Rhône).

Still the best Caesar Salad and roasted chicken. Always consistent after 30 years. Great Location. - Tim Nugent, Top Chef Just Desserts
Hands-down the best burger in the Bay Area. Artisanal cheeses, rosemary-scented foccacia, and pickled zucchini ribbons help this cafe stand head-and-shoulders above the rest.

This is a great place to take an out-of-town visitor to eat. Feels like SF. Tastes like SF. Located on Market street in SF.
