The newly revamped Fog City on the Embarcadero is getting ready for spring with a new all-day menu, plus outdoor seating. With the excellent location on the bay and the dry, warm year we’ve been having, those 20 outdoor seats are sure to become coveted spots. The lunch menu is now available from 11:30am–4:45pm, and happy hour is Monday through Friday from 4pm–6pm. Look for discounted wines on tap, some cocktails for $7, and a special appetizer of the day at happy hour (like Oysters Jackpot, $5, which features Hama Hama oysters, green garlic, spinach, and Parmesan aioli baked in the wood oven, oof). The new outdoor seating is along Battery Street; enjoy your next alfresco lunch there!
1300 Battery St. at Embarcadero, 415-982-2000.
The Marina location of Café Claude is now serving brunch on Saturdays and Sundays from 10am–3pm. The menu includes a whole section of “croques,” including the madame, monsieur, and the lesser-know savoyard, with bacon, tomato, and greens. There’s also an omelet, pain perdu, and heartier lunch options like a burger or moules frites; check out the full menu here.
2120 Greenwich St. at Fillmore, 415-375-9550.
Chocolatier Blue has opened a second San Francisco location, this one is in the Mission on Valencia. The shop offers Chris Blue’s pretty confections, along with ice cream, sorbet, floats, and sundaes. Hours are 11am–9pm daily.
905 Valencia St. at 20th St., 415-648-1010.
