Coqueta’s sweeping views and contemporary Spanish cuisine make this Embarcadero eatery—located just steps from the Ferry Building—a favorite of sightseers and locals alike. (The restaurant is also a boon for Giants fans hoping to fit in a snack before the game.) The house gin and tonic, mixed with Spanish spirits and garnished with rose and juniper berries, is a reliable pairing for succulent head-on gulf prawns poached in olive oil and sprinkled with chili sauce and crispy black garlic. Add an order of salmon ahumado—smoked salmon with queso fresco and truffle honey on toast—and market vegetables for an ideal Mediterranean light lunch.
