Time Out says

5 out of 5 stars

A laid-back Michelin starred cafe that highlights fresh local produce.

Don’t be fooled by the low-key name: Aaron London’s quintessential Michelin starred Mission restaurant (and Bon Appetit’s Best New Restaurant in 2015) continues to earn its reputation. The bright, airy indoor atmosphere and outdoor patio work hard to accommodate London’s acolytes but you’re likely still to find a long wait time without advanced reservations. The food at Al’s Place blazes with creativity, uber-fresh ingredients and a focus on vegetables in dishes like chilled green bean casserole with burrata, tomato, basil and pickled padrons. Though you won’t find a full liquor license here, clever low-ABV cocktails and a robust list of wines, craft beers and ciders will keep your whistle whetted.
