John's Grill Picture

John's Grill, San Francisco CA

Nestled in a building two blocks from Union Square and not far from San Francisco’s big convention center and major hotels, John’s Grill has been hosting celebrities from all over the world for more than 100 years. It was created in 1908, only two [+]years after San Francisco’s devastating earthquake. Indeed, John’s Grill was the first downtown restaurant to open after the quake. It quickly became a bustling anchor in the city’s multi-faceted life – hosting a beguiling and lively mixture of politicians, cops, journalists, entertainers, lawyers, business leaders and the just plain curious who wanted to join in the fun, all while eating some of the best food on the west coast. From the time when San Francisco was rebuilding itself and becoming the financial capital of the western United States, on through World War II (the city was the major embarkation point for troops heading to war in the Pacific) and into the heady hippie days of the Sixties and beyond, John’s Grill was – and still is – the downtown gathering place for those who ran the town and those who wanted to run the town.

Inside, today’s customers will find period furnishing and dark paneled walls framed with hundreds of photos of movers and shakers (and a sprinkling of the not-quite movers and shakers), most of them from the San Francisco Bay Area, but several from the world of state and national politics. On the robust menus, diners have their choice of great steaks, fresh seafood and a variety of salads – try the famed seafood combo salad named for fitness guru Jack LaLanne. [-]

Per Diem Picture
Per Diem - (Financial District / Embarcadero) - San Francisco CA -
Per Diem brings the unique style and ambiance of San Francisco to an upscale venue in the heart of the City. The internationally acclaimed Michelin Guide designated Per Diem as part of an elite group of Bay Area restaurants that received a Recommend rating.

We are inspired by vibrant [+]fresh produce of Northern California. The food is approachable straightforward with specialty California ingredients that change with the seasons throughout the year. The menu consist of bar snacks, seasonal salads, local cheese, handmade pastas and flatbreads, free range high quality meats and sustainable seafood.

The restaurant is conveniently located at 43 Sutter Street, between Montgomery and Sansome. The Per Diem construct is a tribute to the era that seeded California’s dramatic population and economic boom. The 1849 Gold Rush flooded San Francisco with new inhabitants seeking new fortunes and transformed what is today’s Financial District into the lively, bustling streets that are now. Per Diem’s floor-to-ceiling dark woods, exposed concrete, steel beams, wood-wrapped marble bar, large pillars, and a historic alluding chandelier encased in an oversized glass lantern are among the restaurant’s striking features, all of which illuminate a traditional, cozy atmosphere.

The 2,100 square feet venue houses two stories including two bar areas, a private dining space, and is ideal for large parties or an intimate dinner for two. Per Diem is located only a few short blocks to the Ritz Carlton Residences, St. Regis, and Four Seasons Hotel; the dapper outfitted restaurant will entice the Financial District workforces and business travelers alike. Per Diem also caters to private events, ideal for corporate parties, wedding receptions or other special occasions.

"Bay Area Top 50 Restaurant"
San Francisco Examiner, July 11,1999 "Even "real men" may not be able to finish off the "oversized and undercharged portions" of "basic Italian food" at this Downtown "landmark" "
