Opened in late 2021, Osito brings a completely new—and captivating—culinary experience to San Francisco. Here, every single dish is cooked over a live fire. In two nightly seatings at 5:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m, diners settle in along a long wooden communal table with views of the flames and the culinary team assembling each of the 20+ dishes on the menu nightly. The intimate atmosphere usually sparks conversations between strangers.
San Francisco is a frantic, sprawling beast of a city, full of contrasting neighborhoods, tiny corners to explore, incredible treetop views and tons and tons of culture. But the one thing about San Francisco that will capture your heart, and have you coming back over and over again? Oh yes, that’s the food.
The food offerings here range from side-of-the-road taco trucks to Michelin-starred tasting menus, and from traditional Thai to unforgettable dim sum. Head to The Mission or escape to Chinatown, or simply roam the streets of SF, ducking into cafés and street food along the way.
