Celebrate SF Restaurant Week with these eateries | BARTable

A look inside Black Cat in San Francisco.

For ten days in April, more than one hundred restaurants in San Francisco will open their doors to hungry patrons with a series of prix fixe menus for lunch, brunch and dinner.

San Francisco Restaurant Week, which moved to a largely to-go format in the first years of the pandemic, triumphantly returns to its regular programming between April 1 and April 10. Run by the Golden Gate Restaurant Association, the event celebrates the finest in San Francisco dining by offering diners full meals that are priced between $10 and $75.

We’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite San Francisco restaurants that are within 15 minutes walking from a BART station.

You can view the full list of participating restaurants, and their menus and prices, here.
