Famed Mexico City chef Gabriela Cámara picked San Francisco to open her seafood-centric Mexican wunderkind, Cala. Celebrating its second anniversary this month, Cala presents sophisticated coastal delights like trout tostadas with chipotle, avocado and fried leeks and mussels over toast with carnitas and shaved egg in their upscale warehouse space in Hayes Valley. Cocktails like the Sangria Aneja (anejo, jamaica syrup and fresh citrus) beautifully complement the food with Latin American flavors. If you’re in the mood for a quick bite, at Tacos Cala, located in the alley near the restaurant's back entrance, you’ll find rotating daily offerings of D.F.-style tacos de guisado.
