Fall Floral in Russian Hill
I hear a good portion of the world is prepping for the cooler temps and this thing called 'sweater weather', but here in San Francisco, we're enduring our hottest days yet. A full-on 90 degrees this week. The Bay Area breeze can't even save us from that number! Whatever the gauge reads, we'll all ring in a new color palette together. From the storefronts to the neighbor's flower garden, it's all signs go for this next phase. And what's better to take us from summer to fall than the ever classic florals. Enter this Autumn Botanica beauty from the Elliot Lucca Artisan Collection, inspired by still-life oil paintings. Fall floral + paintings, I had to have.
Follow us around our San Francisco neighborhood, Russian Hill, as I share a couple favorite (and secret!) spots.We'll start on Polk Street...
First things first is a cup of joe from Saint Frank's.Minimalism and gold scroll text, for the win.
Right next door is a paper lover's dream, Ferme à Papier.
Blue Barn salads are all together filling, delicious, and trendy. Can you imagine?
Serve Belgian beer and you have our hearts. Thank you, Stones Throw.
The Russian Hill Bookstore is all things local, vintage, and lovely.
Head east to Hyde Street for round two of our tour.
Put your name in for Elephant Sushi immediately.
In the meantime, grab a vin rouge at Union Larder.
Cozy up in the window seats of Bacchus Wine Bar.
And for your sweet tooth, Swensen's ice cream is a given.Cash only - don't climb up that hill without it. We've learned this lesson for you.
Hop on a street car for quintessential San Francisco.
I could pass by Lombard Street every week and never tire of it.
So, this next one is a bit of a secret gem...
At the bottom of Lombard Street (that's Lombard and Leavenworth), head north to stumble onto a semi-hidden flower garden, Fay Park.
And the clincher for Russian Hill, the views. All of 'em!
