TRACE joins for another year of San Francisco's favorite foodie event: SF Restaurant Week. Top restaurants across the city will be participating in this celebration of, in my humble opinion, the best dining scene in the country. Each restaurant will prepare a prix-fixe menu for lunch and dinner showcasing their best dishes.
Chef Jason Rea has crafted yet another all-star menu for SF Restaurant Week. Our prix-fixe lunch and dinner menus give the opporunity to try some of Chef Jason's best work. Start with our fried (so good you'll forget they're vegetables) brussel sprouts before your main course. Try our hard-to-resist TRACE burger or my very favorite broiled salmon with a black bean glaze.
LUNCH (2 Courses): $25
DINNER (3 Courses): $40
MARTINI ON THE SIDE
Because you can't have dinner without a cocktail. Insider tip: our award-winning holiday cocktails are still on the menu through January. Try our Winter Sunrise with Junipero gin, egg whites, blood orange liqueur, fresh mandarin and hibiscus syrup.

Have you ever wanted to wander around a museum after closing
hours with a cocktail in hand? Live your own version of Night at the
Museum at the California Academy of Sciences (just trade Rexy the Tyrannosaurus for Claud the albino alligator). Now you can enjoy the museum in style with the NightLife VIP Tour. Express entry, VIP cocktail hour, hors d’oeuvres, reserved
planetarium seats, and a behind the scenes tour – you’ll never be able to go back to the ordinary museum experience. Once night falls at the California Academy
of Sciences, who knows what can happen.
INSIDER TIP Like W San Francisco, California Academy of Sciences has also been awarded LEED Platinum certification. In 2008, Cal Academy became the world’s
greenest museum. Both W San Francisco and Cal Academy are committed to sustainable practices, such as water conservation, waste diversion, and clean energy consumption.

Mr. Tipple’s Recording Studio traverses unknown territory in the Mid-Market neighborhood. Craft cocktails are nothing new to San Francisco. However Mr. Tipple’s offers much more than yet another spin on a Tom Collins.
The lounge evokes a feeling of sitting around with friends in a recording studio where the owner keeps your glass full. The theme is inspired by the fictional Mr. Tipple, who is just “a simple and laughable bloke hailing from London” that is often found “spinning cocktails, not reeling tape.” After a few of those cocktails, he often just sits back to enjoy the music and the company. “Regardless, the band is always jiving, the whiskey is always cold, and we’re always having a smashing good time.”
To complete the list of essentials when lazing around with friends listening to music, Mr. Tipple’s offers a mean patty melt to satisfy that late night craving. With live music every night, often featuring local bands, and no cover – there is no excuse not to pay your friend Mr. Tipple a visit.

Meat, meat and more meat. Top Chef Masters Champion Chris Cosentino makes a bold statement with Cockscomb and his “head to tail” style of cooking. Chef
Cosentino is redefining San Francisco food trends, which tend to highlight the variety of fresh produce available in Northern California. Cosentino, on the other
hand, sticks to his reputation as an offal chef, utilizing every part of the
Everything is fair “game” at Cockscomb – from beef heart, to chicken skin, liver and pig’s head. Looking for a healthy option? Think again. Even the vegetables, or
“daily requirements” as the menu declares, are cooked with duck fat, crème fraiche and a heavy dose of butter.
INSIDER TIP Fernet has been a cult favorite in the Bay Area, with Fernet Branca monopolizing the taste buds of San Franciscans. Expand your horizons and try the many varieties of Fernet and Amaro that Cockscomb has to offer.
