What’s Open?! Thanksgiving Dinner by Neighborhood

Not all of us will have the pleasure (and energy) to cook up a Thanksgiving Dinner. Maybe some of us are not even planning to celebrate it. Fear not! There are restaurants open for this Holiday.

Rebecca’s Tip: Make early reservations. Oh, and MAKE EARLY RESERVATIONS.

1300 on Fillmore (Pacific Heights)

In 2007, Chef David Lawrence and Monetta White opened the doors of 1300 on Fillmore with the mission to serve inventive Low Country cuisine, and bring every neighborhood, culture, and class a little taste of comfort dining. Located in The Fillmore Jazz District, 1300 on Fillmore dishes up modern riffs on Low Country classics with top-notch ingredients, creative libations, live music and a posh supper club vibe.

3rd Cousin (Bernal Heights)


Chef Greg Lutes brings 3rd Cousin to Cortland Avenue in Bernal Heights. It is the long awaited brick an mortar home of the acclaimed Kinfolk @ 903 pop up that ran weekly in 2014. The food features local organic produce, local seafood and with Chef Lutes being from the Midwest only the highest quality organic, free range and grass fed meats and poultry. A New American cuisine that blends unique and creative flavors and presentations. Kale, Pine Nut and Ricotta Fritters, Uni Creme Brûlée, Pork Belly and Scallops are samples of the signature dishes that will be on the menu.

501 Zingari (Union Square)

Zingari is among the best Italian restaurants that provide fine dining in San Francisco. Zingari brings authentic Northern Italian food to the San Francisco community. This fine dining experience offers an amazing wine list paired with Italian food from all over Italy. The history of Zingari reflects on the fine dining experience with friendly and knowledgeable wait staff that we work on creating everyday. We look forward to serving you!

Alioto’s (Fisherman’s Wharf)

Alioto’s Restaurant is a classic seafood restaurant now run by the fourth generation of the Alioto family. Alioto’s began as a fresh fish stall on San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf in 1925, making it one of San Francisco’s oldest restaurants. Since then, little has changed. Fish is still bought fresh daily including sea bass, sand dabs, sole, swordfish, tuna, scallops, salmon and Dungeness crab, all locally caught, when possible. Alioto’s never skimps on the fish they purchase.

Bask (Financial District)

The Basque Country (Basque: Euskal Herria) is the name given to a region of Spain in the western Pyrenees that spans the border between France and Spain. Its cuisine enjoys a reputation for being one of the best in the world. Basque dishes are not based on elaborate sauces or spice combinations. The excellence of Basque cooking is due to the use of high quality, local ingredients in season, combined with preparation that enhances the natural flavor of the food. The clue of the Basque cuisine is the fresh ingredients.

Beso (Mission)

Beso Bistronomia offers high quality Spanish (Catalan Tapas) cuisine in a friendly, local bistro environment. Beso has its exclusive farm. Napa Kitchen Gardens is the exclusive grower for the Bisou Group, providing locally grown, super fresh organic, baby specialty produces and herbs. Chef Nick Ronan and his chefs design seasonal menus with the Farm Manager in order to facilitate a unique grow to order connection that supports ever changing seasonal menus.
