True Laurel

753 Alabama St, San Francisco, CA 94110

True Laurel is the brainchild of Nicolas Torres and David Barzelay, of Lazy Bear fame. The cocktail bar and New American spot offers delicious cocktails made with unique liquors like gooseberry brandy. The menu focuses on small plates of refined comfort food, as well as creative presentations like tender sweetbreads tucked into grilled cabbage with broccoli spigarello and Caesar dressing. You may even taste an amuse-bouche from sibling restaurant Lazy Bear, such as crisp hen of the woods mushrooms with allium dip. Desserts seem straightforward but are beautifully crafted, especially the sweet, savory and even bitter combination of bay leaf-ice cream drizzled with new olive oil and citrus confit.

Trick Dog

https://www.trickdogbar.com/

With the 2019 World’s Best Cocktail Menu award under it's belt, Trick Dog is best known for its innovative cocktail menus that have ranged from a Dr Seuss-inspired rhyme book to a faux-Chinese restaurant menu to an instructional hippy survivalist catalogue. These launch every six months to great fanfare and provide a semi-annual requirement of a revisit, even to drinkers who have been there a hundred times before. The venue is semi-industrial, mostly-standing room, with a small balcony for diners and dynamic bartenders hustling through orders with great efficiency and panache as the focal point of the space. They’re preparing cocktails accented with curiosity-piquing infusions such as seaweed and ‘everything bagel spice’, and garnishes including a miniature peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
