Why Nopa and what’s so fabulous that you must visit: For starters, if you’ve read any of my San Francisco Top 10 lists you’ll know that Nopa is on almost every list including, Top 10 San Francisco Restaurants, Top 10 San Francisco Burgers, Top 10 San Francisco Cocktails & Top 10 San Francisco Happy Hours. Why is this? Because they are incredible at everything they do. Seriously. Their food is delicious with locally sourced thoughtful ingredients in a lively fun energetic setting. Their team is also amazing. Over the years I’ve gotten to know their Chef/Owner Laurence Jossel now a J.S.F. Board of Advisor, his wife Allyson and their partner/Co Owner Jeff who are all awesome. As evident, I’m crazy about Nopa, their lively scene, incredible food and team. Read more below.

Prior to dinner I love to start at the bar enjoying a Gin Gimlet. It’s my favorite cocktail and the mixologists at Nopa make one of the best in the city.
One of the seasonal salads (varies daily based on produce). This was incredible with the Citrus, Avocado and Fennel.
Delicious Happy Hour bites.
