Park
“In NYC there is nothing as a unique as The High Line. Now San Francisco has a counterpart. The 5.4-acre rooftop park atop the Salesforce Transit Center. 70 feet above the Transit Center's Grand Hall, the park is home to 13 different garden zones, containing more than 600 trees and 16,000 plants in total. Some are native to the Bay Area, while others hail from around the globe. The Transit Center's location allows different types of plants to thrive based on the position of the sun and wind. In some areas: SoMa's high-rise buildings block the wind; in others, they create a wind tunnel. Shady spots abound, as do sunny ones, amplified by the reflection. of sunlight on the glass of the surrounding buildings. I personally cannot get over the redwood 'forrest'.”

“$$$ New American. Casual and classy and it’s on point right now. Not only is the food outrageously delicious but it’s an experience not to be missed. It’s Ayesha Curry and Chef Michael Mina‘s take on all things ‘BBQ. ‘ It’s not smoke and mirrors, but smoke in a rather magical and playful sensory story. SO GREAT! ”
