    Absinthe Brasserie & Bar

    398 Hayes St
    Tu-W 11:30AM-midnight, Th-F 11:30AM-2AM, Sa 11AM-2AM, Su 11AM-10PM. Restyles the rustic foods of southern France into sleek urban classics. Wonderful (expensive) cocktails based on 100-year old recipes. Not the cheapest place in town, but affordable and the quality of the food is an excellent value. A pretty, white-tablecloth setting and excellent service make this a lovely lunch spot. Avoid weekend evenings before 8PM, when crowds from the nearby theater district can mean a wait. And they now serve absinthe.
  • Starbucks

    Le's Kitchen Catering

  • Suite one8one

    181 Eddy St
    Another large (16,000 sq feet), swanky nightclub in the heart of the gritty 'Loin. This modern club has resident DJs that spin hip-hop and house music. It definitely attracts a more upscale crowd and there is a strict dress code in effect... so if you've got sportswear on you probably won't get in!
  • Ananda Fuara

    1298 Market St
    M-Tu, Th-Sa 8AM-8PM, W 8AM-3PM. $6-$11. This vegetarian restaurant is a little different as it's run by an Indian religious order called 'Sri Chinmoy'. Ananda Fuara means the "Fountain of Delight" and their food is intended to harmonize you both inside and out.
  • Original Joe's

    144 Taylor St
    $10-$15 (''$4 well drinks''). Joe's is a local institution, a Rat Pack dream of an Italian restaurant. The after-hours haunt of the theatrical and musical set in the 1950s and 1960s, Joe's fortunes fell with those of the surrounding neighborhood, and it's considerably frayed at the cuffs now. But the owner and staff maintain dignity through adversity — all the waiters wear tuxedos and are delightfully polite and thoughtful — and the tasty food in generous portions is probably the best meal you can find after midnight in SF, bar none. Reasonable prices, great service, oh-so-cool atmosphere — don't miss Joe's if you can. Unfortunately, in 2007, it closed due to a kitchen fire, and there are no plans to re-open.
  • Deco Lounge

    510 Larkin St
    Su-Th 10AM-2AM, F-Sa 10AM-3AM. Deco lounge is a gay bar in the Tenderloin that has three floors. It's close to the Civic Center and a good place to go if you're in town to see the Pride celebrations.
  • Bodega Bistro

    607 Larkin St
    Lunch: 11AM-3PM daily, Dinner: Su-W 5PM-9:30PM daily, Th-Sa 5PM-10PM daily. $8-$23. In Vietnamese Bo-de-ga in Vietnamese means beef-lamb-chicken — all popular Vietnamese dishes. The menu also draws equal inspiration from French cuisine making this an unusual dining experience.
  • Market Street Grill

    1231 Market St
    Breakfast: 6:30AM-11AM daily, Lunch: 11AM-2PM daily, Dinner: 5PM-10PM daily. $18-$40. Serves up Asian and Italian inspired dishes using fresh American ingredients in an ornately decorated dining room. They also have live piano playing most nights of the week.
