Zero Zero (San Francisco)

The last of Twitter friend Alison's recommendations that I tried in San Francisco was Zero Zero, a trendy Italian eatery located in SoMA (south of Market). Alison's other recommendations had all turned out to be gems, so I was expecting nothing short of excellence from Zero Zero. In addition, we were meeting up with some friends for this meal, and since anyone who knows me expects to eat high quality food with me, my reputation was definitely at stake! Luckily, Zero Zero delivered.

R. and I split an appetizer and a pizza. He picked the appetizer: Tomato Braised Chickpea, Rosemary, and Burrata Bruschetta ($8.95) which came in one large scrumptious piece, and I picked the Mason pizza ($18.95), with grilled corn, speck, scamorza, thyme, fresh garlic, mozzarella, and Grana Padano cheese — a great combination of flavors. Zero Zero also serves up some tasty cocktails: my Hot Lips ($12), with Blanco tequila, jalapeño, cilantro, lime, and ginger syrup was the bomb.

As with many other popular San Francisco restaurants, advanced reservation is a must to secure a table. Even with a reservation, we had a bit of a wait.
