Your Guide to Outdoor Dining in the Lower Haight

By Gio Acosta

They say you never know what you have until its gone. With the pandemic taking so much away from our daily lives, that phrase has never been so apparent. Since our neighborhood was overlooked in most dining guides recently published, we decided to take matters into our own hands. Below you’ll find the most up-to-date guide on dining in the Lower Haight. We even added a few of our favorite spots right outside the neighborhood. If your healthy and willing, please go grab a bite or drink and support the businesses keeping our neighborhood intact. Remember to always wear a mask, be safe, and don’t forget to tip! ✌️
