When this unassuming wine bar opened in Dogpatch in 2006, featuring a list of almost entirely sustainable, organic and biodynamic wines, there were skeptics aplenty. But Yield is still going strong, an anchor in a neighborhood that’s grown into a mecca for locavore restaurants, artisan food purveyors and craftspeople. Its popularity inspired the owners to open a bigger, splashier spinoff in up-and-coming mid-Market/Hayes Valley. Yield draws a more low-key crowd than its sister, Pause, many of whom come to sample unusual varietals such as Italian Malvasia and Croatian Plavac Mali, while sampling inventive vegetarian and pescetarian fare (grilled flatbreads, chèvre-stuffed dates, cod sliders). If you needed another excuse to stop in, consider happy hour: Half-bottle carafes for $12, every day from 4:30pm to 7pm.
