Everytime I need to bring a glass of wine to a dinner, I make a beeline to Arlequin. They have the best selection and most helpful staff who help me select what's best for my budget. As I know nothing about wines, I rely on them to give me solid suggestions. So far, I have never been disappointed or humiliated with their recommendations. Good store.
Excellent patio dining.
It's unusally warm outside and my colleagues and I discovered Arlequin after a search on this site. Arlequin has a great patio in back that allows filtered sun in through beautiful trees in a garden setting.
We dined on chicken caesar salads and the lamb burger. Everyone was pleased with the food and dining experience. Also, an excellent wine shop attached to the deli that is worth a second look.
Grilled sandwiches and a gorgeous garden seating highlight this small Hayes Valley cafe.. In Short A venture from the owners of nearby Absinthe, this Hayes Valley cafe specializes in Provencal and Mediterranean dishes. There is a small dining room and a gorgeous garden patio out back. A grilled bacon, cheese and pear sandwich headlines the lunch menu, along with salads such as fava beans with manchego cheese. Specialty snacks include house-made potato chips and tiny cornichons. Deserts feature a limited selection of refreshing ices and sorbets.
