Vinography: It's often fun to walk into a restaurant and feel like you've just discovered a place that only the hip crowd knows about... It feels intimate and small, the low lights and lots of glass giving it the feel of a small club.
QuirkySanFrancisco.com: First Crush is a great solution without the travel, endless decisions and taking you away from your time here in The City. This is one reason First Crush makes sense, even if you don’t feel like having a full meal. (BUT, you’ll be sorry when you see other people’s meals float past your hungry eyes.)

From there, just pick a flight or two, and your on your way to discovering more new and exciting wines to make your day, week or trip memorable.
