Fodor's Expert Review Coqueta

$$$ Embarcadero Spanish

With its Embarcadero perch, Bay Bridge views, and stellar Spanish tapas, celebrity chef Michael Chiarello's San Francisco restaurant is a big hit that’s equal parts rustic and chic, a lively destination for both small bites and larger meals. Toothpicked pintxos (small snacks) like quail egg with Serrano ham are a tasty way to start, but the real draws are the inventive cocktails, luscious paella, and dazzling selection of cured meats.
